In the absence of Márquez, the Devil reigns at Sachsenring

Despite the fact that the second half of the championship still remains to be played, the Devil takes a breather at the top of the points table as a result of the trigger blow by Pecco Bagnaia, his theoretical direct rival in the fight for the title, who went down at the first change (fourth lap) while trying to avoid the escape of the Yamaha rider.

With the Ducati rider offside, Quartararo had no one who was capable of tying him up short, and lap after lap he increased his margin of distance over the group of pursuers. Apart from being decisive for the future of the championship, this victory is the first at the Sachsenring that Marc Máequez has not signed since 2012, and the first that does not correspond to a Honda since the one that Valentino Rossi took in 2009, as on this occasion the #20, also mounted on a Yamaha.

Although at no time was he able to play for victory, Johann Zarco finished second relatively comfortably, while Jack Miller completed the podium brilliantly, after facing a rodeo penalty in the early stages of the race.

The Australian fought a very close battle with Aleix Espargaró who in the end fell to the side of the still Ducati rider, already confirmed his signing by KTM with a view to 2023. With four laps to go and while fending off the Townsville rider, Espargaró It was long when he reached the first corner, a circumstance that the #43 took advantage of to accumulate his third podium of the season.

Luca Marini went from less to more and finished fifth, while sixth place went to Jorge Martín.

The seventh to cross the finish line, almost 16 seconds behind the winner, was Brad Binder, while Fabio Di Giannantonio and Miguel Oliveira finished eighth and ninth, respectively.

Enea Bastianini completed the top ten of a survival race, both for the riders and for the bikes: apart from the crashes (Bagnaia, Mir, Darryn Binder and Nakagami), both Maverick Viñales and Alex Márquez were forced to abandon due to a failure in the rear height regulators, and Pol Espargaró did it diminished by the fall suffered on Friday.
