This year’s Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland marks the midway point of one of the closest seasons ever, with Marc Marquez, fresh from a podium finish in Assen three days ago, lying fourth in the Championship standings, just 11 points off the lead, and teammate Dani Pedrosa in fifth at -28.
The Sachsenring track, the shortest on the calendar at 3.67 km, has in the recent years proven to be one of the most successful rounds for both Marc and Dani, who have scored 13 victories between them and have stood together on the podium twice, in 2014 and 2015. The circuit was resurfaced after the 2016 race.
