Rookie Jonas Folger (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) managed to push reigning Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) all the way through his home GP at the Sachsenring, leading the race for a time and crossing the line to take his first ever podium in second by the flag. With the rest of the field far behind, the statement from the rookie was impressive – and a perfect preface to the summer break.
Highlights: Folger takes 1st win of season in Moto2™
Next up is Brno – where Folger won last year in Moto2™ - and the German’s confidence following his rostrum finish in the premier class shows no sign of going anywhere.
Jonas Folger: “I am really looking forward to getting back on my Yamaha at Brno. It was nice to have a short summer break and recharge the batteries after Sachsenring, and now I aim to go to the Czech Republic and keep the same positive feeling from the last race. I feel confident and I think that the bike can work really well at Brno and together with the improvements that we have made, I’m sure that we can have another great weekend. We want to show once again that we are very competitive and that we can stay at the front and be strong at this race.”
