Unfortunately, Maverick Viñales did not see the arrival of this German Grand Prix from which he had successfully started. His start to the race was in unison and this is to be noted from a driver known for his timid starts. His good will was annihilated by a mechanical failure of his leveling corrector, which made him assist from the pits the rest of the race on a Sachsenring which he more often surveyed from a Yamaha. The very one that Fabio Quartararo has brilliantly won. Exactly about this…
Fabio Quartararo delivered a new demonstration of the mastery he has of his Yamaha in particular and his talent in general by dominating without firing a shot German Grand Prix exhausting. As during the last meeting in Catalonia, he pounded the track with his M1 to build a lead of more than 5s over his closest pursuer who was, in Saxony, the compatriot Johann Zarco. And to create this gap in today’s MotoGP, at the highest level, is to cut boss.
A finding that Maverick Vinales doesn’t really validate… but before saying what he thinks about it, he commented on his performance: ” I had chosen to start with the front on the grid, where the other drivers are generally nicer. At the rear, on the other hand, it’s the jungle, because everyone goes where they want. The important thing is to have made several overtakings on a track which is certainly not easy “.

Then he makes this reflection on the success of Quartararo : “ Fabio exploits the potential of the M1 to the fullest and he was very good. But we must not forget that today Bagnaia was unlucky, while Marquez is not here and I am still trying to adapt to Aprilia “.
In short, the French World Champion who has been laying the foundations for a few races of his second coronation would above all be the beneficiary of favorable circumstances. See you in Assen next weekend to put this Top Gun theory to the test in a new round of this exciting World Championship.
