victory of fabio quartararo and blow of authority in the World Cup. The leader distances himself from his immediate pursuers and takes over from Marc Márquez, a true dominator at the Sachsenring since 2010.

good outings of Fabio Quartararo and Aleix Espargaró. The World Championship leader took the lead after the first corner, beating poleman Bagnaia, while Espargaró did the same with Johann Zarco.

The first Honda, the satellite of Nakagamiyou had to look for her in tenth place, something unheard of on a circuit that the Japanese factory has dominated since 2010 (in 2009 the victory went to Valentino Rossi’s Yamaha), which shows the problems that the Hondas are suffering this year.

Fateful third lap for Pecco Bagnaia and Joan Mir. They both fell to the ground. The magnificent weekend of the Ducati rider was marred by a crash when he was riding completely alone. He leaned too far and gravity got the better of him. The Italian from Ducati adds his second consecutive zero and the World Cup escapes him. Mir’s mistake left Suzuki without bikes on the track, since Alex Rins decided not to take the start for his wrist problems after the fracture that occurred in Montmeló. Nightmare also for the Hondas: in the sixth lap Nakagami fell and Alex Marquez entered the pits. Only the official tester and substitute for Marc Márquez, Stefan Bradl, remained on the track.

Quartararo was trying to escape and give a blow of authority in the World Championship, although the two Aprilias did not want to make it easy for him (the best position in this circuit at Noale’s home had been seventh place). Aleix y Viñales they were marching just behind Zarco. The two Frenchmen escaped, opening a gap and causing a good fight to complete the box. Arriving at the meridian of the race, Jack Miller, who had to serve a penalty, was closing in on the two Aprilias. Between Miller, Viñales and Aleix, if there were no setbacks, there was the third. But there was and Maverick, after a scare in which he went off track, decided to retire after his rear shock broke.

The disaster at Honda completed with the removal of Pol Espargaro, which ran undercover after its sharp drop this weekend. They had to help the Catalan get on his motorcycle but the pain got the best of him and he didn’t finish the race. Bradl, the only Honda to finish the race, finished outside the points. With three laps to go there was an error by Aleix Espargaró, who went wide in a corner and made it easier for Miller to overtake. Jorge Martín finished sixth and Raúl Fernández twelfth.
