2019 MotoGP German Grand Prix Preview

MotoGP moves swiftly on from the Dutch TT and heads to Germany for this weekend’s racing.

On form

Marc Marquez is still the rider on form having finished no lower than second in the last five races.

Another on good form, although he did have a difficult Dutch TT, is Fabio Quartararo who goes into this weekend off the back of double podium finishes, having finished second in Catalunya and third last time out at Assen.

Both Joan Mir (Suzuki) and Andrea Iannone (Aprilia) have built up good momentum going into the weekend with both riders having finished in the points in the last three races, both their longest point scoring streaks in 2019.

In need of a result

Valentino Rossi is in need of a strong result in Germany having failed to finish the last three rounds. His last finish coming in France when he claimed fifth place.

It will be especially important as the two riders behind him in the championship are both on Yamahas with Quartararo on a good run of form while Maverick Vinales enters the German Grand Prix weekend having taken victory last time out in Assen.

Been there, done that

Marc Marquez is certainly the rider to beat at the Sachsenring, having won the last six German Grand Prix. However, his Circuit of the Americas winning run ended this season, could his run at Sachsenring come to a halt this weekend?
