Can M. Marquez make an incredible comeback to keep his Sachsenring crown?

Enjoy 10 facts and records which could be broken on Sunday, including a chance for the #93 to take his 12th Grand Prix victory at the Sachsenring

After a thrilling Saturday at the Sachsenring, Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing) claimed an impressive Sprint victory – extending his Championship lead to 15 points. Miguel Oliveira (Trackhouse Racing) and Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) were charging hard behind with Marc Marquez (Gresini Racing MotoGP) finishing down in P6. Marquez has a huge task ahead on Sunday, with the #93 starting from P13 he will have to complete a comeback to create history and win his first Grand Prix with Ducati and a 12th at the Sachsenring.

1. Championship leader Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing) has qualified on pole for the fourth time so far this year along with Qatar, France, and Italy, setting a new all-time lap record at the Sachsenring. On Sunday, he could take his eighth MotoGP™ win and his second in a row in Germany to complete his second double at the Sachsenring.

2. Miguel Oliveira (Trackhouse Racing) has qualified second for his best qualifying result since he was on pole at the 2020 Portuguese GP (on his way to winning the race). This is also his first top three in qualifying since he qualified third in Catalunya last year. He will now be aiming to win for the first time since Thailand in 2022.

3. After passing through Q1, Raul Fernandez (Trackhouse Racing) qualified third for his second top three in qualifying in MotoGP™ with Catalunya earlier this year. With his teammate in second, this is the second time there are two Aprilia riders in the top three in qualifying so far this year along with Catalunya. He will be aiming to score his best result in MotoGP™ if he can beat his P5 taken in Valencia last year.

4. Reigning Champion Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team) has qualified fourth, which is the first time he failed to qualify either first or second since Jerez earlier this year (although he won the GP race there.) He will be aiming to take his fourth Grand Prix win in a row, something no rider has done since Bagnaia himself in 2022 when he won four in a row from Assen to Misano.

5. Despite a crash in Q2, Alex Marquez (Gresini Racing MotoGP™) has qualified fifth for his second-best qualifying result so far this year after Assen last week when he qualified fourth. He will now aim to add to his premier class podium collection: two with Honda and two with Ducati so far.

6. Franco Morbidelli (Prima Pramac Racing) has qualified sixth equalling his best qualifying result so far this year from Italy. He will be aiming to take his first podium since he finished third in Jerez in 2021.

7. Maverick Viñales (Aprilia Racing), who suffered a big crash in Q2, has qualified seventh, and he will now aim to take his 11th MotoGP™ GP win.

8. Rookie Pedro Acosta (Red Bull GASGAS Tech3) qualified 10th equalling his worst qualifying result in MotoGP™ from Spain and Assen last week. Aged 20 years and 43 days old on Sunday, he has his last chance to become the youngest premier class winner and take the record from Marc Marquez (20 years and 63 days old in Austin in 2013).

9. Aprilia and KTM/GASGAS riders will be aiming to give their manufacturer(s) their first win at the Sachsenring. So far, the best Aprilia result here is P4, while the best for KTM/GASGAS is P2.

10. Marc Marquez (Gresini Racing MotoGP™), who crashed twice on Friday, has qualified 13th for his worst qualifying result at the Sachsenring in MotoGP™. He will now be aiming to win for the first time since Emilia- Romagna 2021 (987 days ago). It would be his first Grand Prix win with Ducati and Gresini, and his 12th Grand Prix race win at the track.
