The Frenchman Fabio Quartararo, current champion and leader of the MotoGP, stretched his advantage in the World Championship in the category, by easily winning the German Grand Prix, held at the Sachsenring, for the tenth date.
The Yamaha rider only had to worry about his pursuer in the first few laps and then dedicated himself to driving cautiously, without errors, to complete the 30 laps of the German track at the front of the peloton.
His victory, on track after a good start, was paved by the crash on the fourth lap of the Italian Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati), who had taken pole position.
The race had several dropouts, since in addition to Bagnaia, the Spanish Joan Mir and the South African Brad Binder also crashed. And the Spanish Alex Márquez and the Japanese Takaaki Nakagami, both from the Honda satellite team, LCR, defected due to mechanical problems.
The Spanish Maverick Viñales also said goodbye early, who with the Aprilia does not find the regularity that he used to have with Yamaha.
Quartararo won with almost five seconds of advantage, escorted by his compatriot Johann Zarco and the Australian Jack Miller, both with Ducati.
Behind entered the Spanish Aleix Espargaró and two other Ducati, those of the Italian Luca Marini and the Spanish Jorge Martin.
The top ten were completed by South African Brad Binder KTM), Italian Fabio Di Giannantonio (Ducati), Portuguese Miguel Oliveira (KTM) and Italian Enea Bastianini (Ducati).
After 10 rounds, the World Cup is led by Quartararo with 172 points, followed by Aleix Espargaró (138) and Zarco (111). The next MotoGP round will be held next weekend in Assen, the Netherlands.
