About the
Sachsenring Circuit

After hosting races on a closed road course from the 1920s all the way up to the 1990s, the Chemnitz city council decided it was time for a permanent venue which we now know as the Sachsenring. Built in 1996, the German track hosted its first GP in 1998, and since then, the predominantly tight track labeled the “slowest” on the calendar has given us surprise contenders throughout the years.

Having started second on the grid for the last two years, Danilo knows how to tie the sections together at the Sachsenring. Last year, he missed the podium by half a second, though he will now bring that little bit extra required to fight for victory on a track that holds good memories for our Italian MotoGP rider.

The Sachsenring is a track that holds mixed memories for our Moto2 trio. Bo Bendsneyder qualified 4th on his first World Championship outing at the track in Moto3, while teammate, Steven Odendaal, is determined to climb the charts at the venue. Augusto Fernandez, a substitute rider on his last two outings in Germany, is looking to make his mark now that he’s a fixed value on the Moto2 grid.

About this page

“Today has been incredible. Going from so far back is always more complicated but it’s a more interesting race. In the morning, in the warm up, we already knew that we had rhythm to be ahead. The key has been the first laps and try to overcome the maximum positions.

Once I reached the front group, I saw that I could not break the group so I knew it would be a fun endgame. Finally, I got the victory and it’s amazing. I’m very happy. A year ago we worked together with the team and being in front is already the result of the good work we are doing and we must continue. Thanks to the team again and the sponsors.”

About this page

“It’s a shame, but it can happen in a race. I think I had a guardian angel with me, because it could have ended very badly. I was afraid that I would be hit by the motorcycle or by another rider. My REV’IT! suit has optimally protected me and absorbed the blow. It wasn’t an easy weekend, but the team worked really hard and never gave up. We have new material, little data, and we cannot look at others, so we have to figure it all out ourselves.

There is always a solution, but it takes a lot of time. The feeling was good today and therefore it is a shame that it ended with a crash. I was behind Manzi and wanted to try to stay with him, because he always rides aggressively and I wanted to take advantage of that. He became seventh. But to achieve a result and grab points, you first have to finish. I am happy that next weekend we will immediately have another race and can pick up the thread.”

About this page

“It was a difficult race after a very difficult weekend, but we can be satisfied with the result. The times were constant and when I passed Roberts, I closed in on Tulovic. In the Geert Timmer, I was pushed wide by another rider.

As a result, I came outside the track and could not help but cut. Too bad I got a long lap penalty for that. That made me ride alone and I was completely out of rhythm. Sixteenth is pretty good on one hand, but it is not satisfactory, because there had been at least one point in it.”

Qualifying in 4th and finishing 6th isn’t a bad result for Jaume Masià’s first World Championship appearance at the Sachsenring track last year. Lorenzo Dalla Porta is looking to gel better with the German circuit, with the aim to get into the rhythm early in the weekend to fight at the front on Sunday.
