Luca Marini : ” The Sachsenring is a very special circuit. In MotoGP, even more so if you consider the size of the track, which is small compared to the average, and the points where you can advance. We will continue to work to take advantage of this positive trend and be able to keep up with the fastest riders from Friday. It will also be crucial to do well in the classification to start with the leading group of the race. I have many fond memories of this circuit: my first podium at the World Championships in 2018, one more reason to enjoy the GP on a unique track. “
Marco Bezzecchi : ” I’m curious to try the Ducati on this type of track: very complicated, very short, small, without a real straight and with violent changes in the ups and downs. Also, from the point of view of the ball, most of the twists are left and hopefully this is not a problem. After the last two races in a row, between Mugello and Barcelona, I fought with my left arm. I took part in the Barcelona race and then I made the most of the week to recover. I feel good and I want to work again on a circuit that has given me a lot of satisfaction in the past and where I hope to confirm myself in the Top10, or in the top 12 positions. »
Pablo Nieto : ” Two very fast races, a week of rest and then we return to the track for two more races in a row on two very different circuits, but at the same time challenging. We continue to work, we take advantage of the positive trend of the moment to confirm the progress made in recent weeks and bring the two drivers to the Top10. The Sachsenring circuit is very special and it is difficult to make predictions: we will take advantage of Friday’s free practice to understand the real values of each one. »
