2022 Sachsenring MotoGP Race Result: An Undisputed Ascension To the Throne

With its longstanding monarch busy walking the dogs (and recovering from major surgery), the Sachsenring was looking to crown some new royalty – although it did not make it easy for the contenders, with rather tropical conditions during the premier class race. But at the end of a long gruelling 30 laps, there was finally a new occupant on the top spot of the podium and a very deserved one in Fabio Quartararo, the world champion taking over the crown of the Sachsenring with a commanding victory, ruling by nearly five seconds over his rivals. After Ducati’s main man bailed out early on, Johann Zarco and Jack Miller were left to pick up the pieces, the Frenchman claiming second to solidify his position as Ducati’s lead title contender, while the Australian recovered from a long lap penalty to steal the final podium position.

Pecco Bagnaia’s start from pole didn’t do him much good, with Quartararo immediately attacking him into turn one and although the Italian tried to retaliate next time around, the Yamaha man immediately snuck back past on the exit. Having started on the second row, Aleix Espargaro gained one position to trail the feisty leaders but was soon under fire from Zarco, while Miller lingered half a second back after the first couple of laps, the Australian yet to serve his long lap penalty for crashing under yellow flags the day before. The opening laps were a particularly tricky affair for the likes of Jorge Martin, who dropped down to the bottom of the top 10, Joan Mir who was stranded in 12th and Enea Bastianini, who lost ground from an already poor grid position to find himself 21st.

No such issues for Quartararo, who was immediately attempting to make a break at the front and his escape was promptly aided by Bagnaia throwing his machine at the turn one scenery at the start of lap four, prompting a festival of yellow flags, with crashes in quick succession for the likes of Mir and Darryn Binder. Bagnaia’s mistake left Zarco with the task of reeling in his compatriot, who was already one and a half seconds ahead, while seemingly dropping the Aprilias of Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Viñales, the latter’s progress helped by Miller serving his penalty on lap five, which dropped him to seventh position, behind Fabio Di Giannantonio and Martin. Brad Binder was making good progress as the lead KTM man in 8th, ahead of Luca Marini, while Pol Espargaro was the sole Honda representative in the top 10, after Alex Marquez retired and Takaaki Nakagami took a tumble on lap seven.

Only a third into the race, it already looked like a third successful escape of the day, with Quartararo managing his 1.5 second gap over Zarco, while Espargaro’s focus was on keeping teammate Viñales out of his hair in the battle for third. Hoping to re-join that particular battle, Miller had progressed through the chasing pack to take fifth by lap 12 and had a two second gap to close on the Aprilia-powered podium contenders.

If Zarco was keeping Quartararo honest for the first half of the race, the world champion doubled his advantage going into the second half, the Aprilias dropping a sizeable four seconds behind. If Viñales looked like a serious threat to his teammate’s podium in the early stages, a moment at turn eight lost him fourth in Miller’s favour and the Spaniard was then forced to retire with a rear ride-height device failure a couple of laps later. That left Espargaro under fire from Miller, while Martin picked up the lead of a feisty group battling for fifth, including Marini, Binder and Di Giannantonio.

Back at the front, Quartararo had steadily stretched a four second gap with five laps remaining, with Zarco enjoying a five second gap of his own over Aleix Espargaro, who still had Miller glued to his rear tyre. Miller made a few attempts, but the accompanying mistakes kept him behind the Spaniard until Espargaro himself left his braking a bit late at turn one and allowed Miller past with three laps to go. As soon as he found himself ahead, Miller managed to keep Espargaro at a respectable half second distance and secured the final podium spot behind the Frenchmen. Marini’s impressive pace in the closing stages equalled his best result in the class with fifth place ahead of Martin, while Binder and Oliveira sandwiched Di Giannantonio in positions seven to nine. Bastianini saved a top 10 from a particularly difficult weekend in Germany, but nowhere near as difficult as Honda’s, whose sole finishing rider was Stefan Bradl, the local rider coming home last after Pol Espargaro retired eight laps earlier.

The freshly crowned King of the Ring adds a whole pile of points to his world championship tally, Quartararo extending his advantage to 34 points over Aleix Espargaro, while Zarco fronts Ducati’s campaign on a 61-point deficit.

2022 Sachsenring Moto2 Race Result: The Great Escape

Another tough race in a sweltering Sachsenring provided a mix of utter domination and last lap duels to decide the configuration of the podium. At the end of 28 hot laps, it became quite clear that the Red Bull KTM Ajo boys are back in business, with Augusto Fernandez running away with the victory and taking the chequered flag almost eight seconds before teammate Pedro Acosta, the rookie quickly progressing from 11th on the grid to defend second from the poleman and the home favourite. Although Sam Lowes could not cope with Fernandez’s speed to convert pole into victory, he makes a well-deserved return to the podium on his 150th GP start.

Lowes had made a solid start off the line, to keep control of the pack, while Marcel Schrotter was immediately in the mix at turn one, getting ahead of front row starters Fernandez and Albert Arenas. Having started in the middle of the fourth row, Acosta was in top 6 contention after the opening lap, ahead of Jake Dixon, Tony Arbolino and Fermín Aldeguer, while the main title contenders were pushing to join the top 10 early on.

By lap three, it seemed like Lowes and Schrotter had the early advantage, but the Red Bull KTM Ajo boys were soon picking up the pace, with Fernandez closing the small gap to the two leaders and Acosta being the quickest man on track, making progress in the top 5. Fernandez made his move on Schrotter at turn three and set off in pursuit of Lowes straight away, attacking the Brit next time around turn three to take the lead on lap six and immediately extend a half second gap at the front. Although Lowes tried to respond, the poleman soon found himself over one second behind and with Acosta reeling him in, with Schrotter and Arenas still in tow. Just under a second behind, Aron Canet and Joe Roberts were pushing to join the podium battle, while title contenders Celestino Vietti and Ai Ogura engaged in direct battle for minor point-scoring positions.

By lap 12, the race started to look like a deja-vu from an hour or so ago, with Fernandez setting a fierce pace to extend a cushy three-second gap, while Lowes was fending off Acosta in the battle for podium crumbs. Acosta did not even have to flex his muscles too much, as a moment at turn three for Lowes allowed the rookie to breeze past at the halfway point of proceedings. Home favourite Schrotter was steadily dropping out of podium contention, around one second behind the duo and keeping Arenas at bay, while Canet had company from Aldeguer two seconds down the road. Another second back, Alonso Lopez, Ogura and Tony Arbolino were still deciding the remaining top 10 positions, while Vietti was not having the time of his life down in 14th position.

The opposite was definitely true for Fernandez, the Spaniard six seconds ahead of the field with 10 laps still left of the race, although we did not get to see much of his delight, as all eyes were on the growing battle for second. Although Acosta led the pursuit, Lowes looked keen to recover the position he conceded and kept glued to the rookie’s tail, but with Schrotter keeping close behind as well. After losing touch with the German, Arenas didn’t have much breathing room, with Aldeguer immediately breathing down his neck and despite risking mild dehydration from a disconnected water bottle, the rookie made his move to join the top 5 for the final half dozen laps. While teammate Lopez had Ogura on his case, the Japanese rider was even more keen to make up ground as he was notified that rival Vietti crashed out of 12th position with seven laps remaining.

If Fernandez was enjoying clean – if a bit too warm – air at the front, teammate Acosta had a track limits warning and an aggressive Lowes to contend with. The Brit made his move at turn 12 with four laps remaining, but the rookie immediately retaliated at turn one. Copy-paste one lap later, with Acosta answering every attack and then Schrotter re-joining the party and attacking Lowes for third with two laps remaining. Lowes reclaimed third at the start of the final lap and reeled in Acosta once more, with some contact at the final corner, but the rookie crossed the finish line one tenth of a second ahead of Lowes. Schrotter missed out on a home podium by another tenth, with Aldeguer coming strong in the closing laps to almost challenge for the podium and secure fifth. Compatriot Arenas celebrated his best result in Moto2 in sixth, ahead of Lopez, with Ogura climbing into eighth and Canet holding onto ninth after a difficult few days.

Vietti’s misfortune pours some fuel over the championship fire, bringing Ogura within 8 points and allowing Fernandez to close in to 12 points, with Canet 17 points down.

2022 Sachsenring Moto3 Race Result: Atypical But Not Unexpected

A scorching Sachsenring set the scene for the lightweight class kerfuffle, but the battle for victory ended up being both unusually uneventful and predictably secured by Izan Guevara, the poleman maintaining the impressive pace he showed throughout the weekend to run away at the front of the field. The Spaniard took the chequered flag five seconds ahead of his pursuers and secured back-to-back victories to solidify his title bid. The likes of Dennis Foggia and Sergio Garcia could not match their rival’s pace and waited until the final lap to decide the remaining podium positions, with Foggia declining Garcia’s advances at the final corner to keep second position, while Garcia limited the damage in the world championship with a third place.

Guevara was untouchable from the very beginning, making a great launch from pole to lead ahead of the Leopard Racing duo of Foggia and Tatsuki Suzuki. Rookies David Muñoz and Dani Holgado kept Garcia company right behind, while a bit of early chaos was unfolding behind them, with an overly enthusiastic Carlos Tatay taking Riccardo Rossi and John McPhee out of contention at turn one, Ryusei Yamanaka serving a long lap penalty before being sent into the gravel by Deniz Öncü, who in turn got a double long lap penalty for a jump start, followed by a crash for Matteo Bertelle and Scott Ogden at turn seven, drastically reducing the numbers in the main pack. Meanwhile, Jaume Masia was aiming for a comeback from his qualifying misfortune and was threatening the top 10 after the first few laps.

Back at the front, things were going to plan for Guevara, the poleman managing an early gap of half a second, while the Leopard boys were being challenged by Holgado, Garcia and Sasaki. Muñoz and Kelso were pushing to catch up with the leading group but a mysterious lap seven saw the Australian sliding into the gravel trap and the Spaniard quickly lose significant ground and drop into a second group led by Masia and Öncü, almost four seconds behind the leaders.

While Guevara grew his gap to one full second by lap 10, teammate Garcia and rival Foggia were particularly eager to get to the front of the pursuit, but with the threat of track limits warnings already. Although the chasing group didn’t disturb each other too much, their pace was no match for the runaway poleman, who continued to add tenths of a second to his already significant advantage.

By the halfway point of proceedings, Guevara was 1.5 seconds ahead of the pursuit led by Foggia and although the Italian started stringing together red sector times, that gap resisted, and it seemed like the focus would soon switch to defending second from the strong group including Garcia, Sasaki, Suzuki and Holgado. Seven seconds down the road, Öncü was fending off teammate Adrian Fernandez for seventh position, with Masia and Muñoz duelling for ninth.

With nine laps to go, Guevara’s lead had expanded to three seconds, with no significant moves made yet in the group of podium contenders, who were seemingly biding their time until the final few laps. Garcia made some tentative approaches on Foggia with three laps remaining and although an overtake was still pending, the duo had steadily stretched a gap over Sasaki, Suzuki and Holgado for the final few laps.

While Guevara was already celebrating victory, Garcia attacked Foggia at the final corner but the Italian swept back past to keep second. Although he faded from the podium battle over the final couple of laps, fourth place was still an impressive comeback for Sasaki, while compatriot Suzuki completed the top five. Rookie Holgado took sixth place ahead of Öncü and Fernandez, with Muñoz and fellow rookie Ivan Ortolá completing the top 10, after mistakes from Masia dropped him down the timesheets late on.

Although Garcia continues to lead the championship battle, teammate Guevara closes in to only seven points, with Foggia 51 points behind.
