Brutal: tenth consecutive pole position for Márquez in Germany

The champion has opted for two pit stops and three starts on the track, improving on each of them and with a new record. Quartararo and Maverick will go out with him in the front row.


The Sachsenring circuit has just witnessed Marc Márquez's tenth pole in a row in the German GP. Since he was a brat in 2010, on the way to the first of his seven titles, the 125cc, the ilerdense has always left from the first position of the grid on this track before getting then the victory. And is that now, after signing the brutality of ten consecutive poles, and also think about the tenth victory in one stroke. With what adjective to qualify something like this, what seems likely, because besides being the fastest one lap also has a better pace than anyone.

The champion opted in this occasion for two pit stops and three starts, improving in each of them and with a new track record. First came out with the aluminum chassis, then with the carbon coated and finished with the aluminum. In the end, the 1: 20.270 he had since last year is already history thanks to the 1: 20.195 that the Repsol Honda has signed. Le served to add the pole number 85 of his successful World Cup and number 57 in the class queen, with which he already has a shot of only one Doohan's record of 58.

Alzamora's pupil they played the Quartararo pole and Maverick, who will be the ones who come out with him in the front row. The Frenchman has stayed at 0.205 and the Spanish has done 0.211, and coincided with the winner of Assen in his last outing on track. Mack made a quick change of motorcycle at the door of his box, flag-to-flag style, and stayed a while watching Márquez come. It did not finish leaving and, when finally it was decided, it did it just in front of Marc and to point they were of touching both. Nothing happened, but the image was curious by the closeness of both as they rolled through the pit lane, as chopped, but very slowly.

The one who got angry with another pilot was Petrucci. The Italian was hindered by Mir on a good lap and Danilo made it very clear, with some fuss from bike to bike that were close to the swipe. Danilo then went to the ground violently in the fast turn 9, but could rise by his own foot. It was not the best Q2 for him, because he fell and finished twelfth, the last of which came out on track in the final session. He had to go through the clinic, where he was diagnosed with a sprain of the thumb of his right hand, with the ligament affected. There is no doubt for the race.

The second line was for Rins, Miller and Crutchlow. The Spaniard suffered a run-off on the second lap in which he was trying to follow Marquez's trail, but nothing happened to him. The third was for Morbidelli, Pol and Mir, who will have to see if they sanction for clearly annoying Petrucci. Yesterday several pilots called to order for this reason the Panel of Commissioners and warned that today there would be penalties ...

As for the last line that was at stake in Q2, it was awarded Nakagami, Rossi and the aforementioned Petrucci. The first two came from Q1. More back Dovizioso ranked 13th, Aleix 15th and Rabat 22nd, which was complicated by their options with a fall.
