Repsol Honda Team Head To Germany With Momentum On Their Side


This weekend’s German GP marks the midway point of the 2014 season and Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez is firmly in the driving seat, with teammate Dani Pedrosa third in the Championship but level on points with second place Valentino Rossi.

The German GP attracts some of the biggest crowds on the racing calendar. Originally the track weaved through the streets of nearby Hohenstein-Ernstthal – the first race taking place in 1927 – but when it became too dangerous, Sachsenring was constructed, 3.67km in length combining ten left turns and just three rights and has hosted the German GP since 1998.

Championship leader Marc has an exceptional record at this track having won here the last four years (2013 MotoGP, 2012 and 2011 Moto2, 2010 125cc). Teammate Dani, who unfortunately missed the race last year due to an injury sustained in Saturday’s FP3, also has an incredible history at this circuit with six victories (four in MotoGP), and a total of seven podiums.

Marc Marquez
Championship Standing: 1st - 200 points
"It was a tough and complicated weekend in Assen, but I was really happy to win a race under such tricky conditions. Now we have Sachsenring which is a nice circuit, but quite special as it’s so small! Last year I had a good race but we must remember that neither Dani or Jorge were able to race so this year I look forward to racing them, especially as Dani is so strong at this track! It seems the Honda is well suited to this circuit so we will look to make the most of this advantage”

Dani Pedrosa
Championship Standing: 3rd - 128 points
“It was a tricky weekend in Assen and in those kind of races, it’s easy to lose many points in the Championship, so I’m pleased with our podium finish. Now we’re heading to Germany where I had a disappointing weekend last year after being declared unfit to race due to my crash on Saturday. I always enjoy racing at Sachsenring and finding the right set up is critical - especially as you spend a lot of time on the left, but the fastest corner is to the right, so tyre performance will be key. I’m looking forward to getting there to make up for missing last year!”
