Looking forward to racing after a 2wk break. We are at the half way mark of the season now. Marc looking very good, Jorge and Vale will certainly want to cut the gap down, lets hope we see no more DNF's.

About the circuit
Car and bike races have been held on closed public roads in the area around the town of Chemnitz, Germany since the 1920s and were still taking place until as recently as 1990. It was decided, however, that the five mile course through such a densely populated area was no longer suitable and a new circuit was built five miles west of Chemnitz in 1996. Although mainly used as a driver training centre and road transport safety station, Sachsenring first hosted MotoGP in 1998 and many improvements have taken place since then, including a drastic layout enhancement in 2001. Numerous tight corners make it one of the slower tracks on the calendar but there is never any shortage of close racing action.

MotoGP » MotoGP Germany: Michelin to debut asymmetric front 11 July 2016
"It would be nice to have a straightforward weekend, but if you want that then Sachsenring is not the place to go!”

Michelin to debut asymmetric front
MotoGP Germany: Michelin to debut asymmetric front
Michelin will respond to the unique challenge of the Sachsenring, venue for this weekend's German MotoGP, by providing asymmetric front tyres for the first time this season.

The tight and twisty circuit is heavily biased towards left-hand turns. However the fastest and most daunting corner is the downhill the right-hand Turn 11 'waterfall' plunge (pictured).

As a result, the left shoulder of the front tyre will feature a harder rubber compound than the right. Both a soft and hard version of the asymmetric will be available, plus a medium compound symmetrical front slick.

To match the front allocation Michelin will will offer a rear slick which also features a harder left shoulder in its asymmetrical design. Again designed to cope with the fast lefts, this tyre will also need a softer right side to heat up quickly. It will be available in medium and hard versions.

“After the excitement and diverse conditions we had last time at Assen, it would be nice to have a straightforward weekend, but if you want that then Sachsenring is not the place to go!” said Piero Taramasso, Manager of Michelin's Two-Wheel Motorsport Group.

“It is a very demanding circuit and the layout – with its long left-hand corners – generates a lot of heat that the tyres will have to contend with. With this in mind we have created completely new compounds designed especially for this track.

“This will be the first time we have had asymmetric rear tyres where the left is harder to cope with the high temperatures and it will also feature a soft right-hand-side to heat up rapidly for the sharp, slow right-hand corner that comes at the beginning of each lap.

“This follows a lot of left turns and the start/finish straight – so it will need to get temperature very quickly to give the riders the grip they need. Sachsenring will also signal the first time we have provided a front asymmetric tyre.

“Sachsenring is another circuit where we can have variable weather – similar to Assen – so we have to be prepared for that, but no matter what the conditions are, the huge German crowd will certainly have a good time, as this is one of the big party races of the season.”

MotoGP Germany: Marc Marquez: 'We’ve learned from the past' 11 July 2016
"We've learned from the past and we're approaching this season race-by-race, trying to be ready and make the most of what we have and what the situation requires" - Marc Marquez.
MotoGP title leader Marc Marquez hasn't been beaten at the Sachsenring since a 125cc race back in 2009.

If the Repsol Honda rider can extend his winning streak to seven this weekend he will go into the summer break having pushed his world championship advantage over the psychological 25-points, meaning he could afford one non-score and still keep the lead.

“We're going to the German GP aiming for a podium position and of course possibly to fight for the win,” Marquez said. “The Sachsenring is normally a very good track for me that I like very much, maybe because it has so many left-hand corners, a bit like a dirt track!

“On the other hand, it's another one on the calendar where the weather has sometimes played a crucial role in the past, so we'll see how it goes there.”

Marquez's season began with victory in two of the opening three races, then rostrums in four of the following five rounds.

By contrast, Yamaha rivals Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi have both suffered multiple non-scores - a trap Marquez fell into one year ago - and start this weekend 24 and 42 points behind the Spaniard in the standings.

“We've learned from the past and we're approaching this season race-by-race, trying to be ready and make the most of what we have and what the situation requires,” said Marquez, who pointed to his head after settling for a 'safe' second place to Jack Miller last time at Assen, but is still eagerly seeking technical updates to his RC213V.

“In any case I'm happy we'll be back in action shortly and I'll do my best to get another positive result before the summer break.”

This time last season Marquez had 89 (compared with 145) points and was fourth in the world championship, 74-points from the top.

Marquez's team-mate Dani Pedrosa has also claimed six previous grand prix wins at Sachsenring, albeit with his most recent in 2012. Pedrosa is fourth in the world championship, with two podiums this season.

“I like the Sachsenring very much; it's definitely one of my favourite tracks on the calendar," Pedrosa said. "I have very good memories there, and together with my team, we'll try to make the best use of what we've learned from the last races.

"It was a pity that we didn't get a better result in Assen, where our strategy was perfect for the first part of the race, but the positive is that we know we've worked well in demanding conditions. We'll try to do the same in Germany.”

I think as long as MM93 keeps his bike upright, his lead will lengthen. JL99 historically struggles at Sachsenring, and while the weather impacted the first two practices, he hasn't shown any signs of overcoming those struggles. The other Honda and Yamaha riders also had meh sessions. In fact, if FP3 is a wet session, DP26, VR46, and JL99 could all be in Q1, fighting for the two spots in Q2.

FP1 - 2 Results:
A short but incident packed FP1 at the German MotoGP saw Scott Redding, Jorge Lorenzo and then Stefan Bradl all fall at the notorious Turn 11 'Waterfall' corner in the opening minutes.

Lorenzo underwent checks on his left hand, which ruled out any fractures.


Rain spots, combined with cold temperatures, then prompted most riders to stay in the pits.

MotoGP Germany: Valentino Rossi: 'All the Yamahas are struggling' 15 July 2016
“I have the clear feeling if I try more, I can lose the front” - Valentino Rossi.
Arguably the fastest rider at the last three races, Valentino Rossi began the German MotoGP weekend down in 14th place after Friday practice.

Unexpectedly cold conditions seemed to hit all of the Yamaha riders especially hard. Tech 3 riders Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith were eleventh and twelfth, with Rossi's team-mate Jorge Lorenzo down in 16th after being one of five riders to fall at Turn 11.

In order to avoid Qualifying 1, the Yamaha riders must break into the top ten in Saturday morning's FP3 session.

“It was a difficult day because the weather was very bad. This made everything more difficult, and also more dangerous, because also the soft option for the front [tyre] is a bit too hard for this temperature,” Rossi said.

“This morning, I had a quite good feeling, but after it started to rain. In the afternoon, we tried something different and also I have to work only with used tyres, rear and front.

“But anyway, our potential is nothing special. Looks like today, all the Yamahas are struggling with the front. We don't have enough feeling with the front, especially on the right, especially at Turn 11, but also on the other right corners.

“At the end, I wasn't able to make a lap pushing at 100%. So I am in a bad position.

“I never have the feeling to push. I have the clear feeling if I try more, I can lose the front. The Turn 11 is a very dangerous point, very fast, so maybe it's better to wait a little bit and hope for a better condition tomorrow.

“We have to try to be faster and more competitive.”

The Sachsenring is the slowest circuit on the calendar and offers a unique challenge for the riders.

“This track is a particular track because it's very tight, especially the first part and it is the only place where you stay 25 seconds on the left," Rossi explained. "And sincerely, it is physically very demanding, because staying for a long time on the left is difficult. Also the track is short and you have to do 30 laps in the race.

“But for me Assen, or other big and fast tracks, are more difficult. In the end, this track is not so bad, the bigger problem is it goes left, left, left... and then right. So every lap we arrive [at turn 11] is very scary. Apart from that, the rest is good, I like the track.”

Rossi starts this weekend - the midway point of the season - having slipped 18 points from Lorenzo and 42 from Honda's Marc Marquez due to his fall in the wet at Assen. Marquez was third fastest on Friday.

MotoGP Germany: Lorenzo: 'We are not competitive in any area' 15 July 2016
“All the Yamahas struggled. We are not competitive in any area. Braking, the middle of the corner and acceleration” – Jorge Lorenzo.
Jorge Lorenzo avoided injury in a fast Turn 11 fall during the opening minutes of the German MotoGP weekend at the Sachsenring.

But that was about the only good news for the reigning world champion on Friday, which he finished down in 16th place and with his Yamaha 'not competitive in any area'.

“I'm well. I don't have any injuries, any broken bones and I can ride like normal,” began Lorenzo, whose accident occurred moments after Scott Redding and just before Stefan Bradl had also lost the front at the same turn.

“The tarmac was very cold and I entered [Turn 11] slightly faster than on my previous lap. Maybe some little degrees of difference in lean angle and then the front closed. I was much slower than last year, but the conditions and the tyres were not the same.”

A total of five riders took a Friday trip down the 'Waterfall' corner, one of the most notorious turns on the MotoGP calendar due to its fast, off-camber character preceded by a long tyre-cooling sequence of left handers.

“This corner is very fast, one of the fastest in the championship, with off-camber, and you arrive after so many corners on the left side,” Lorenzo confirmed.

Michelin has rolled out two new asymmetric front tyres, with softer rubber on the right, for its first Sachsenring appearance as official supplier. However, Lorenzo believes the selection was still too hard for the conditions.

“I believe that for these conditions - especially this morning, this afternoon was a little hotter - even with the softest tyre option, still the [tyres] were too hard,” he said.

“I went 20km/h slower than last year and much less lean angle but I crashed anyway. In the rest of the corners the problem is much less, but still you need to be very careful, especially in the morning.”

Whilst it is easy to suggest the early accident dented Lorenzo's confidence, especially following such a miserable wet race at Assen, all the Yamaha riders struggled badly on Friday.

Tech 3's Pol Espargaro was best of the M1s in eleventh place (+1.239s), with team-mate Bradley Smith twelfth and Lorenzo's team-mate Valentino Rossi 14th.

With only the top ten advancing directly to Qualifying 2, the Yamaha quartet will be forced to push hard in Saturday morning's FP3.

“I'm ok,” Lorenzo insisted, when asked about his confidence. “I'm sure that if tomorrow we would race at Le Mans or Mugello I would be fast, I would be competitive. But just a combination of some not-good factors that make me slow.

“Today we saw that all the Yamahas struggled with these conditions. No Yamaha was in the top ten and I struggled a little bit more because with no grip and after the crash this morning it was difficult to push and to trust the bike.

“At this moment we are not competitive in any area. Neither braking, the middle of the corner - because the electronic together with low grip is not reacting smoothly - and then also in acceleration we don't have grip.

“That's why we were are 1.5s slower.”

Fortunately warmer weather is forecast for Saturday, but with the threat of rain on Sunday.

Lorenzo confirmed he tried the M1 with the fuel tank further to the rear, but it was hard to draw any conclusions.

“Today was not the right day to try. You can feel a little bit of difference but still we don't have a clear mind to decide, but it is not a big difference.”

Lorenzo is 24 points from Honda's Marc Marquez, who was third fastest on Friday.

Marquez with pole again. He is taking pole position at an almost 60% clip in MotoGP. Looks like the favorite to win 7 races in a row here in Germany. Don't know where he's more dominant, the Sachsenring or COTA.

Marc Marquez takes pole position for the German MotoGP at Sachsenring ahead of a shock second for Avintia Ducati's Hector Barbera (who made the best of a tow form Marquez and later Andrea Iannone), with Valentino Rossi completing the front row in third.

Jorge Lorenzo - who fell at the end of Qualifying 1 - then suffered his third accident of the weekend in the closing minutes of Qualifying 2. Unable to return, the world champion was pushed down to 11th by the chequered flag.


Iannone suffered a low speed fall on his first flying lap...
