With the German Grand Prix hitting the scene this weekend, the viewers are more than excited for the eighth round of the 2021 MotoGP World Championship. Ready to return to action is the Ducati Lenovo Team, with riders Jack Miller and Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia aiming for the top at Sachsenring.
The twisty Saxon track, the shortest in the Championship with its 3.7 km, has been on the calendar since 1998. It has hosted MotoGP for 22 consecutive years, missing only last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In the past editions of the German GP, Ducati has triumphed on just one occasion, in 2008 with Casey Stoner. The team had also claimed five podium finishes in total at the Sachsenring, the most recent in 2016 with Andrea Dovizioso (third).
After the first seven rounds of the 2021 season, Ducati is tied for second in the Constructors’ Championship, while the Ducati Lenovo Team is second in the Teams’ classification.
Jack Miller (Ducati Lenovo Team)- What to Expect?
“After almost two years, we’re back racing in Germany, at the Sachsenring. It’s a very peculiar track, and it’s also one of the shortest on the calendar. Ducati isn’t one of the favourites at this circuit, but this year we’ve managed to be competitive even on tracks that should have been difficult for us. We’ve had another good weekend at Catalunya, and my feeling with the Desmosedici GP continues to be very good, so I’m confident that I can fight for another good result at this Grand Prix”.
Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) – What to Expect?
“We’re at the eighth round of the season and the penultimate race before the summer break. It’s a crucial moment for the Championship, and it will be crucial to get a good result this weekend. Sachsenring is definitely not one of the best tracks for our bike’s specifications, but I am confident that we can do well this year. As always, it will be important to be competitive right from the start of the weekend! I can’t wait to get right back to work with my team”.
