2011 Sachsenring Moto2: Germany Results

2011 Moto2

Marc Marquez took his third consecutive win – his fourth of the season – in the Moto2 race, ahead of local favourite Stefan Bradl and Alex de Angelis, who completed the podium in third.

Bradl (Viessmann Kiefer Racing) had the hole shot off the start, but pole man Marquez (Team CatalunyaCaixa Repsol) quickly took the lead on the first lap of the Sachsenring race, scrapping for the lead with the German until the Spaniard regained first position on lap 22 of 29 to take the win.

De Angelis (JiR Moto2), who started from the second row, pressured Bradl throughout the race, followed by Aleix Espargaro (Pons HP 40) and fourth row starter Yonny Hernandez (Blusens-STX), until Espargaro and Max Neukirchner (MZ Racing) collided on lap five, ending the race for both of them. De Angelis was not able to make a move on Bradl, with the Italian finishing the race in third, half a second behind the German.

Randy Krummenacher (GP Team Switzerland Kiefer Racing) made his move on fellow countryman Thomas Lüthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2) on the second to the last lap to grab fourth place after the two had sparred with De Angelis for third. Sixth place went to Hernandez, with Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing), who started 23rd on the grid, in seventh.

Simone Corsi (Ioda Racing Project) finished eighth, Jules Cluzel (Forward Racing) ninth and Michele Pirro (Gresini Racing Moto2) in tenth.

A first corner incident took out Julián Simón (Mapfre Aspar), for whom the German GP was his first race back since breaking his leg at Catalunya on June 5th. Simon was unhurt though was unable to rejoin the race. Bradley Smith (Tech 3 Racing) ran off track in the same incident with Simón, rejoined the race, and then later crashed out.

Marquez remains second in the Championship, though has narrowed the gap to leader Bradl to 47 points at the halfway point of the season. The next Moto2 race will be the Brno round on August 14.
