German GP 2017 – Marc Marquez, always him. For the fifth consecutive year, the Spanish Honda driver dominated the German Grand Prix on the Sachsenring circuit. The Spanish wins the 57th race in his career and now he is the leader of the main rankings.
German GP 2017, Marquez. “I was strong on this track”
“Today, if I did not win, it would have been a missed opportunity. Because I knew I was going to be strong on this track. We went to the summer break as the leader of the MotoGP World Championship. So, it is great.” Marquez said. “I expected a great duel with Pedrosa. But I had Folger behind all the time and so I decided to play everything in the final rounds and it’s okay.”
The Spaniard won his 31 race in MotoGP in Germany. Considering all the classes, here the Spanish phenomenon has won eight times, better than him only Giacomo Agostini (10) and Mike Hailwood (9). The Spaniard speaks of his new style of driving. “With this Honda, it is less aggressive. At the beginning of the season, I have been struggling. So, I have fallen and then I decided to change the style after Hayden’s accident, to capture the first victory and dedicate it.”
Rossi and Vinales, Too much difference on the track
For Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales, there was nothing to do. Too much difference on the track. So, the two Yamaha riders concluded the German GP 2017 respectively fourth and fifth. But far from the winner, with whom they have practically never ducked. “I can not be happy with today’s result. But as we went into the weekend, we did the best we could do.” I managed to get in the second row, I could play with Pedrosa in the third place. So, they are 10 points out of the summit, we’re all there.” Rossi said at the end of the German GP 2017.
Bad day for Dovi and Ducati Team
Bad day for Andrea Dovizioso, eighth at the end with his Ducati. A kind of cold shower for the Italian rider. Because he did a positive strip of results and he wanted to consolidate his position at the top of the overall rankings. Instead, it was overtaken by Marquez and also by Vinales, slipping to third place.
