The German Grand Prix on 2nd July sees Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo conclude the first half of the MotoGP season. Thirteen corners, some of them very tight, await the two riders at the 3.7-kilometre Sachsenring. These include the infamous Waterfall, which always demands the utmost concentration from the riders, not to mention a lot of skill.
Last year, the two Ducati factory bikes finished third and fifth. Given the performance of the team in recent weeks, Ducati fans will be hoping for an even better result this time around.
During the previous three races, among them the team’s home GP in Italy, our partner picked up 83 points, thus proving to be the most successful team during that stretch. This recent run of success was down in no small part to the efforts of Andrea Dovizioso, who took the chequered flag twice in these three races. Prior to the race in Germany, he is also leading the Riders' Championship with 115 points to his name.
The ninth race of the season gets underway at 14:00 (local time) on Sunday 2nd July. After the 30 laps of the Sachsenring, MotoGP heads into its summer break and will return to the racetrack at the start of August in Brno, in the Czech Republic.
