Fabio Quartararo strikes once again by winning the 2022 German GP last weekend. With this consecutive win after Barcelona, the French rider has extended his lead in the championship.
It has been Marc Marquez who has been the “king of the ring” since 2012, however, he was absent for this year’s German GP due to his injury that needs more medical attention.
So, in the absence of the Spaniard, it was the Yamaha rider Quartararo who started off from the 2nd on the grid and used his late braking skills to get past the polesitter Francesco Bagnaia. Although the Ducati rider tried to regain his lost position, Quartararo played very defensive to ensure no one gets past him. Moving futher into the race, Bagnaia’s crash on lap 4 strengthened Fabio’s position and from there onwards, it was a lonely race for the Frenchman.
With Bagnaia out of the race, Aleix Espargaro’s 2nd place was snatched by Zarco with a daring move on turn 11. Zarco continues to stay in the spot and crossed the line on number 2. The 3rd place was taken by Jack Miller who had to serve a long lap penalty on the fifth lap for crashing under yellow flags in FP3.
At the 4th, 5th and 6th place we had Aleix Espargaro, Luca Marini and Jorge Martin respectively. KTM’s Brad Binder settles at 7th whereas Fabio Di Giannantonio on his Ducati and Miguel Oliveira on his KTM stays at 8th and 9th place respectively. Closing the top 10 was Enea Bastianini.
