Can Marquez make it 9 out of 9 in Germany?

We have a situation. We have an anomaly. This is not a normal or an expected outcome. Perhaps he was close to the fukushima daiichi reactor when it melted down? Perhaps he really is an Alien from Titan? Who knows, but the rest of the field will still be shitting their pants regardless.

Marquez has already won on this track last year, a second and a half ahead of Yamaha-mounted Crutchlow, and nearly ten seconds ahead of Rossi in third.

I suspect the rest of the field is not looking forward to this weekend.

Dani Pedrosa FTW. First man to beat Marquez this year. Out last year with a broken collarbone.

Massive Ducati carnage at the waterfall. 1 production Honda in the top ten. :eek1

MM wins again most likely, but I hope Krop is right and Dani wins it.

Link here to the history of Sachsenring winners. The Grand Prix era began in 1998 with a victory for Doohan.

Rossi got his first big-class win there in 2002, winning again in 05 and 06. His last victory there came in 09.

However, during Rossi's world championship winning era (2001-2009), Gibernau, Pedrosa and Stoner each won there, and Biaggi won there twice (2001 and 04).

Of this year's field, Rossi has won the big race at Sachsenring four times, Pedrosa four times and Marquez once.

Since Rossi's victory in 09, Pedrosa has won every year except for last year, when he crashed in practice on Saturday and cracked his collarbone.

Last year Rossi was quick in practice, and he qualified on the front row. A look at Krop's Sunday Roundup from last year reminds me that Rossi made a set-up change for the race that turned out to be a step backwards. He still came in third. This doesn't look like a power circuit to me, and so I think Rossi is in with a very good chance for the win.

What could - maybe - slow up both Pedrosa and Marquez a bit is that this race last year had a huge effect on the championship. Lorenzo crashed on Friday and ripped the screws from his plated collarbone. Pedrosa hung in as outright favourite for about 24 hours before he did his collarbone. So both of them will have something to think about. But so will Marquez. :deal

As for Crutchlow ... it seems certain to be another tough weekend. Last year he qualified second, and after being pushed wide at the start he finished second, and closing the gap to Marquez. Asked at Assen to look forward to Sachsenring this year, he observed that the circuit was all about very long corners, which was where the Ducati was worst. :cry

" So both of them will have something to think about. But so will Marquez "

I think when MM puts his helmet on, victory is the only thing he has in his mind.

I like to watch the kid race, he is truly amazing... BUT I do hope someone really challenges him all the way to the flag, maybe even beats him finally. Would be refreshing at this point.

I pick Marquee for the win. I'm going to Indy, so it would be a great thing to see him make it 10 straight there.

With the team leaders established at both Repsol Honda and Movistar Yamaha, the second riders will be looking to improve their incomes for the 2015- 16 contract period from one third of what they make now to half. :norton.

Pedro will try too hard and crash. Lorenzo will be happy to finish third behind Rossi in second.

tinhead 07-08-2014 06:56 AM

Moto3, since both Miller and Fenati gave them a huge gift last race, Honda will look to keep their mojo working.
Alex Marquez or Alex Rins? Flip a coin, I pick Marquez to make it 3 straight races where both brothers win both classes. Fenati to complete the podium.

So you're gonna TOTALLY discount Lorenzo in favor of Dovi and AEsp? That's a mistake.

I pick Lorenzo to podium, but definitely no worse than 4th.

the more things change, the more they stay the same
