Aleix Espargaro continua a stupire ! aleix with FrenTubo among the greats!

Marc Marquez won the German MotoGP at Sachsenring to make it nine victories in nine races this season, despite starting from the pit lane.

The Spaniard, 21, took to the grid on wets, amid patchy rain, but switched to his slick-tyre bike on the warm-up lap.

With the majority of the field doing the same, the world champion took the lead on lap six and never looked back.

The championship leader finished 1.46secs ahead of Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa, with Jorge Lorenzo in third.

All the podium finishers started from the pit lane.

Marc Marquez is the first rider to win nine consecutive races since Italian Giacomo Agostini in 1970

Germany's Stefan Bradl, who made a pre-race change to dry weather tyres while still on the grid, started alone on the front row.

But the 24-year-old was quickly caught on a bike that was still largely set up for wet weather and eventually finished 16th in his home grand prix.

Marquez, who had qualified on pole but then had to fight through from 10th, is the first rider to win nine consecutive races since Italian Giacomo Agostini in 1970.

He extended his world championship lead to 77 points.

Fellow Spaniard Pedrosa's second place moved the 28-year-old ahead of six-time world champion Valentino Rossi in the overall standings after the Italian finished fourth on his Yamaha

Sachsenring is a track which Espargaro enjoys, giving him good results aboard the Aprilia CRT machine last year. Much of the weekend has been spent testing the Forward chassis as opposed to the Yamaha one he has been running so far in 2014.
The soft tyre had given Espargaro an edge in the previous sessions allowing him to lead on the first day. Again these tyres provided a boost in Q2, helping to close the gap in engine performance between the Open and Factory bikes.
A lap of 1’21.376s put him ahead of both Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) on their factory Yamaha machines.
Espargaro commented, “We are doing a great weekend here, we’re close to the top even on used tyres. We missed the front row by just a tiny margin. We need to work and focus on which tyre we’re going to use over the race. The team and I must talk about it tonight.”
“It is good to keep this level, I am getting more and more confidence and am able to fight with the top guys. We hope to continue this for as long as we can,” he added.

SACHSENRING - Partenza in massa dalla pit lane per il cambio gomme, ma il finale in Germania non è diverso dal solito, con Marc Marquez su Honda che centra il suo nono successo consecutivo, non succedeva dal 1970, l’ultimo a riuscirci è stato Giacomo Agostini. Sul podio con Marc c’è anche il suo compagno di squadra Dani Pedrosa, mentre Jorge Lorenzo su Yamaha si deve accontentare del terzo posto. Quarto al traguardo
