There will be no action this weekend in MotoGP. The category rests and prepares its return to activity next week. However, the teams and drivers continue to work to face the German Grand Prix, which will be one of the key dates for qualifying and for the future of many paddock riders. After the controversial Catalan Grand Prix, fans are looking forward to the return.
The first seven dates of the World Motorcycle Championship left several sensations. Parity is still one of the strengths and the talent of the drivers continues to be talked about. The leadership of Fabio Quartararo it was affected last weekend, after the two sanctions that were imposed. The first of them was to shorten the first curve of the circuit of Barcelona, while the second for having run with the monkey open on his chest.
With a six-second penalty, Quartararo finished sixth in the race, and lost some ground with respect to Johann zarco, which persecutes the one of Yamaha. The one of Pramac he got closer to 14 points, and next weekend he can reach the world championship lead. However, Fabio is on an outstanding pace, and already has five pole positions in a row. This Sunday, expect a sixth, which would be a record.
Another focus of next weekend will be the idols of the paddock. As you know, Marc Márquez continues its recovery process after five tests in its Sling. A motorcycle that does not help, and that even endangers his physique, which is not in the best way. Marquez has to live with his demons, but he hopes to fight for his first win since 2019.
On the other hand, Valentino rossi comes to Sachsenring with the future of his sports career at stake. The Italian was the center of rumors in the last week, but it can twist the story. Germany and the Netherlands, in Assen, will be fundamental to see if he makes the decision to withdraw from MotoGP or if he continues at least one more season with the team Petronas, something that seems difficult to happen.
