Are M. Marquez’ Sachsenring records too impressive to ignore?

Ahead of the summer break, check out who we think are the ones to consider for MotoGP™ Fantasy at the German GP

MotoGP™ returns for one last throw of the dice before the summer break at the Liqui Moly Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland. The paddock will once again head to the legendary Sachsenring, a track like no other that is set to host its 26th World Championship Grand Prix.

Once again, the MotoGP™ Fantasy game will spring into life this weekend, so let’s look at who you should consider for your team at the German GP!

Who were the top riders in Assen?

Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) stole the headlines once again in Assen, completing the Super Grand Slam after taking pole position, the Tissot Sprint win and Sunday’s Grand Prix. The #1 took an impressive 52 points in MotoGP™ Fantasy, with Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing) coming out as the second-highest scorer. The Martinator took 44 MotoGP™ Fantasy points after coming second best on Saturday and Sunday.

Enea Bastianini (Ducati Lenovo Team) took 36 points after a stunning ride allowed the Italian to finish P3 on Sunday after starting from P10 on the grid. Meanwhile, Fabio Di Giannantonio (Pertamina Enduro VR46 Racing Team) rounded out the Dutch GP Dream Team after earning 27 points.

Unsurprisingly it is the Ducati Lenovo Team, who were at the top of the team standings from the weekend, earning 44 points and adding to the delight after Ducati claimed top honours in the constructor category – earning 48 points.

Who looks good ahead of the German GP?

Heading into the Sachsenring you must consider Bagnaia, who is just 10 points adrift in the Championship and has been in incredible form – winning the last three consecutive Grand Prix. The Italian will take a big chunk of your budget priced at $4.8M, but given his recent result, he looks like a good choice this weekend.

Meanwhile, at the top of the MotoGP™ World Championship standings is 2023 German GP winner Martin, who will be aiming to repeat his success at the Sachsenring. However, the #89 is the most expensive rider, priced at $4.9M, and is another rider in red hot form.

Ahead of this weekend, you must consider Marc Marquez (Gresini Racing MotoGP™), with the #93 aiming to add to the history books this weekend. Marquez is still the most successful rider at the Sachsenring, winning 11 Grand Prix across all classes. This comes at a cost with Marquez taking away $3.9M of your budget at the German GP.

However, if you are looking for something more budget-friendly then Pedro Acosta (Red Bull GASGAS Tech3) could be your rider of choice, with the #31 taking victory at the iconic venue last year in Moto2™ and is priced at just $2.5M. Marco Bezzecchi (Pertamina Enduro VR46 Racing Team) could also be seen as a bargain at $2.1M after a tough Dutch TT. Bezzecchi has had some great results previously at the German GP, finishing P4 in the race last year.

In terms of having some variety, Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing), could be a strong option, with a P6 finish last year, the Australian’s hopes could soon turn around in Germany and is priced at just at just $1.2M after a tough start to the season. Miller will not be the only Aussie lining up on the grid this weekend, with Remy Gardner replacing Alex Rins at the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™ Team. Gardner is only $1.6M and could be a strong gamble, given his previous MotoGP™ experience.

It is set to be another dramatic weekend in Germany, so make sure you tune in from Friday, July 5th!
