It was yet another Fabio Quartararo master class as the active MotoGP World Champion dominated the German Grand Prix in Sakusen Ring.

Factory Yamaha riders won the race 4.9 seconds behind Johann Zarco, and Aussie Jack Miller returned from a long lap penalty to take the podium for the third time in the season.

Quartararo will take over the race away from the championship rivals with a 34-point lead by winning the race twice in a row.

Aprilia Racing’s Aleix Espargaro remains second in the title race after finishing fourth, but Ducati team Francesco Bagnaia crashed on lap four while chasing Quartararo.

With the crash of Bagnaia, Quartararo unchained and he won an overwhelming victory.

Pramac Racing’s Johann Zarco described the post-race as the most physical of his MotoGP career and finished in lonely second place.

Aussie Miller suffered a long lap penalty for dangerous riding when he crashed in practice 4 in yellow flag conditions.

After a long lap, he fell to the top 10 tail early in the race, but Miller ran through the field energetically to finish in 3rd place, scoring only 3 points in the previous two races and then showing a good bounce.

Halfway through, Maverick Viñales caught his championship teammate Espargaro, and the two Aprilia were in third place.

However, Viñales’ Aprilia rear ride height device got stuck and couldn’t get over it, forcing him to retire.

Espargaro’s pace slowed down and he raced a lot on Turn 1. Miller didn’t need another invitation and came in third.

Espargaro returned in 3rd place ahead of Luca Marini on the VR46 racing team.

Marini won the race long battle with Jorge Martin in 5th and 6th place respectively, and KTM star Brad Binder reiterated his long run pace rising from 15 on Finish in 7th place.

The top 10 was closed by Fabio Di Giannan Antonio, Miguel Oliveira and former championship candidate Enea Bastiany.

Another championship candidate fell to the side of the road in Germany after starting from Paul. Bagnaia’s recent crash is 91 points behind Quartararo, not far from winning four races.

The remaining points were awarded to Marco Betsecki, Raul Fernandez, the best performing Franco Morbidelli, Andrea Dovizioso and a second Australian Remy Gardner.

Only Stefan Bradl finished off the point in a very threaded race.
