Pasini takes 125cc Sachsenring victory

Mattia Pasini took a tight victory over team-mate and championship leader Alvaro Bautista at the Sachsenring Circuit in the 125cc Grand Prix, passing the chequered flag just 0.010s ahead of his Spanish counterpart.

After the opening laps, it became clear that the winner would come from one of three. The Two Master MVA Aspar riders had stiff competition from poleman Lukas Pesek, who took off with his rivals early and led intermittently on the closing laps. The Czech rider eventually came in third, ahead of Hector Faubel, Simone Corsi, Thomas Luthi and Nico Terol. Bautista's nearest title rival Mika Kallio saw the gap between the two increase after he could only manage a disappointing eighth at the German track. Joan Olive and Sergio Gadea completed the top ten.

Repsol Honda's young British rider earned his second consecutive points finish, coming in twelfth after a last lap burst.
