Marquez: “We’re ready in both conditions”

Eighth consecutive pole at the Sachsenring sets up the reigning Champion for a victory charge on race day

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) took a stunning last dash pole position at the German GP after rain came down on Q2, beating Danilo Petrucci (Octo Pramac Racing) to the top on his final lap of the Sachsenring. That makes it eight years in a row - from the 125 World Championship to MotoGP™ - that the number 93 has taken pole at the venue, with each having been converted into a race win. It’s also Marquez’ 40th pole in the premier class.


Marquez's pole-winning lap

Marc Marquez, P1: “It looks like every year it’s more and more difficult. In the wet you never know what feeling you’re going to have on the bike but in the beginning I was pushing, and then waiting to push to my limits in the last part – then I realised with less water there was even less grip! Our target was the front row so pole position I'm very happy. This year with the new asphalt it dries very quickly, it’s something we need to concentrate on tomorrow if it’s a flag to flag race. We’re ready in both conditions, and I’m looking forward to being here tomorrow on the podium – but of course we will try to fight for the victory.”
