Repsol Runners Roll Into Sachsenring

After a dramatic weekend in Assen 10 days ago, the Repsol Honda Team head to Sachsenring this weekend for the Grand Prix of Germany, the eighth round of the season.

The 3.67km Sachsenring track, the second shortest on the calendar after Laguna Seca, has numerous tight corners - 10 left and 3 right - and requires a very accurate set up of the bikes.

Dani Pedrosa, who still leads the Championship with 136 points, has an incredible history at this circuit with six victories (four in MotoGP), including the past three years, and a total of seven podiums. Likewise, teammate Marc Marquez, who is 3rd in the Championship just 23 points off Dani, has a very good record here too. He's also won here the last three years (2010 125cc, 2011 and 2012 Moto2) and will be hoping for some dry track time to learn the lines on MotoGP machine.

Dani Pedrosa Championship Standing: 1st - 136 points

"This week we head to Germany and I hope we can get a good feeling and have a good weekend. Sachsenring has typically been a good track for me in the past and it's a circuit where I always enjoy racing. It's a short track where you spend a lot of time on the left, but the fastest corner is to the right, so tire performance will be key. It's important to keep the momentum and ride my best to keep fighting for race wins"

Marc Marquez Championship Standing: 3rd - 113 points

"It was a tough and complicated weekend in Assen, but the important thing is that we learned a lot and picked up another podium and some important points. Now we head to Sachsenring, another new circuit for us on the MotoGP machine. We will see how the weather is there as it can change quite a lot! It will be interesting to see what the circuit is like on this bike because it's one of the smallest circuits on the calendar and I already found it small in Moto2 so I can't imagine how it will be in MotoGP! When we get there, I'll take my time to learn the lines with my team, as we do every week, and try our best for another good result"
