Jorge Martín claimed victory in Saturday’s sprint race at the 2024 MotoGP German Grand Prix, halting the winning streak of his great rival for the world championship, Pecco Bagnaia, who could only finish third after being overtaken for second place on the podium by Trackhause-Aprilia’s Portuguese rider Miguel Oliveira. Martín’s is the fourth victory of the year in the short race on Saturday, and the 13th since this specialty, of which he is the greatest specialist, was introduced last year. The Spaniard’s victory serves to consolidate his championship lead, which is now 15 points ahead of Bagnaia.

The Ducati rider, who started fourth on the grid, was once again brilliant in his launch, managing to sneak between Martín and Oliveira on the first corner and leading the first lap of the race, which led to the belief that Pecco would win again in the lead, as Martín was moving up to third position. But the Madrid rider overtook Oliveira and Pecco on the second lap and took the lead, pulling ahead, always with Oliveira and Pecco behind, very close, even with Enea Bastianini who stuck to the group but at no time dared to attack his teammate to challenge him for third place, despite finishing a tenth behind. Fifth was Franco Morbidelli, who is slowly recovering his pace but was far from the podium.

Marc Márquez, who started 13th on the grid, injured on his right side and with a fractured finger on his left hand, managed to recover positions and climb up to sixth position, for which he had to fight with Maverick Viñales, managing to beat him at the end by just three thousandths of a second in another of his performances full of overtaking and risk, not in vain he managed a spectacular save in turn 1 with 6 laps to go.

Brad Binder finished eighth, ahead of Alex Márquez and Marco Bezzecchi, who rounded out the top 10 after Pedro Acosta went off track and dropped to last place in the standings. Fabio Quartararo did poorly, finishing 13th ahead of Raúl Fernández, who started on the front row and was in front at the start until he began to lose positions. And Honda once again made fools of itself with its five riders at the bottom of the standings.
