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.

Looks like it's gonna be a rainy weekend in Germany. Sunday has a 30% chance of scattered showers, so maybe they can sneak in a dry race. Most likely, though, there might be some screwed up conditions leading to that devil of motorcycle racing known as the flag to flag.

Anyhow, Dave will be out of town so the other David (me) will be posting up results and my opinions.

I still feel the Yamaha riders have the best chance of taking home the title, but this is the lowest points for the championship leader after 8 races since 2006, and we know what a crazy season it took for Nicky (god rest his soul) to win a championship. I could see this year bring similar, someone with great talent, a darkhorse, if you will. I'm sure glad I have Video pass so I can watch it all unfold.

Marc Marquez fastest from Maverick Vinales during a dry FP3 at the German MotoGP.*

The session was extended from 45 to 55 minutes to give riders extra dry time on the new track surface after a wet FP2.*

In a repeat of FP1, Valentino Rossi's bike stopped early in the session, while there were falls for Sam Lowes, Dani Pedrosa, Karel Abraham, Danilo Petrucci and Johann Zarco.*



All riders except Lowes and Abraham set their best laps of the weekend in FP3...*

Marc Marquez has won the German MotoGP after soaking up a surprise challenge from rookie Jonas Folger.*

Folger showed no sign of nerves as he passed the Repsol Hondas of Marquez and Dani Pedrosa to sensationally lead the early stages of the race.*

The young German was then the only rider capable of sticking with Marquez when the reigning champion returned to the front, the pair pulling comfortably clear of Pedrosa.*

Folger only lost touch with Marquez after running slightly wide in the closing stages. Movistar Yamaha riders Maverick Vinales and Valentino Rossi both worked their way forwards after a poor (wet) qualifying, but couldn't get near the podium places.*


Marquez now takes over the world championship lead by 5 points heading into the summer break...*

2. Jonas Folger GER Monster Yamaha Tech 3 (YZR-M1)* 41m 2.835s

Ten points between the top 4 in the championship now, heading into the summer break. I believe MM93's points total is one of the lowest first half totals for the leader since this points system was introduced - I'll have to check on that.

Folger has been knocking on the door most of the season, and he finally gets on the podium in a big way, finishing over 8 seconds in front of DP26 in 3rd. Great season for the Tech 3 boys.

Now for my least favorite part of the season - summer break. See you in about a month at Brno....

Some brutal words from Kevin Schwantz about Iannone (from crash.net):

Kevin Schwantz knows a thing or two about taking a Suzuki grand prix machine beyond its limits.

Unsurprising then, that he has been unimpressed with Andrea Iannone's recent showings, the Texan stating Iannone should ?go race go-karts? if he's not prepared to risk.

After several poor outings, notably a dismal run to 16th place at the Grand Prix of Catalunya in which Iannone came home 46 seconds behind race winner Andrea Dovizioso, Iannone's has continued to find fault with the GSX-RR, be it the feel on corner entry, or the electronics package.

Some of Iannone's showings at the Sachsenring have been ? to put it bluntly ? diabolical, with the Italian finishing 24th ? the last rider of the field ? in both of Friday's free practice sessions.


Schwantz, present at the Sachsenring, had a few harsh words for the Italian: ?I don't know exactly what's going on in the team,? he is quoted as telling Italian sports paper*Gazzetta dello Sport. ?I'm not close enough to them, but I know by experience that if things are wrong, there is only one thing to do; get out there and work. And try. You have to do more than all the others to try to recover.

In any case, I don't think the bike is so much worse than the others. Iannone is lost, because it seems like he wants the Suzuki to behave like the Ducati. But this bike will never be a Ducati. Instead he should try to take advantage of its strengths.

Speaking to him, it seems that the bike has no strengths. But this is an evolution of the bike which Maverick used last year. The Yamaha at the beginning of the season seemed to be on the rise and then it seemed a bit lower. Honda is more or less at the same level as 2016, the Ducati seems a bit more consistent. As a result, Suzuki should also be there, fighting for the podiums ? not finishing the two sessions on Friday last.

You know how hard it is to be last? Someone like Iannone, with experience and what he did in the past, should be there to work, make more laps than anybody in the tests, and in free practice he didn't make 30 laps like Marquez.

[He should] ride, ride, ride, then come back and talk to the engineers and tell them how the bike works. If you listen to him say the bike does not brake, does not turn, does not go... I don't understand Italian, but his body language is as bad as it can be.

Risks are part of the game and Schwantz had a line for Iannone if he is not prepared to take them: Then you should go and race go-karts. You're doing a job that thousands of people dream of, you have dozens of engineers who work for you and are ready to do whatever you ask them. Give them a direction. For me it's a sad situation because everyone knows that this is not a 20th place bike.

Schwantz also spoke to Iannone at Austin, where his complaints were much the same as they are now: He told me, 'Oh Kevin, you can't believe it, the bike doesn't stop, doesn't accelerate, doesn't turn'. But if you look at other races the bike didn't seem so bad to me. I would love to tell you what I and all of us see, but he probably wouldn't like to hear it."

Schwantz never rode this bike, his opinion has no basis in reality.

I realize what we see in the media is never the actual reality, but I do get the feeling that AI29's heart is not in it. I don't have anything concrete for that feeling, though, other than it seems like he's just not trying very hard this year. Dead last in sessions, cruising until your ancient test rider passes you, etc., doesn't really smack of putting forth your best effort. Rins being hurt did put a lot of the load on AI, and maybe being THE guy is something he isn't used to. I really don't know, it's just a feeling I have.

As for the karting thing, that's a little harsh, but the stuff about how to work with a team seems spot on to me, and KS probably does have a lot of that particular experience.
