Marc Marquez has a superior record at the Sachsenring Circuit which will be the arena for the 2021 German MotoGP. However, Marquez did not set a victory target.
Marquez has not lost at the Sachsenring since winning in the 125cc class in 2010. In the Moto2 class, Marquez has again climbed the highest podium at the Sachsenring in 2011 and 2012.
After advancing to MotoGP in 2013, Marquez maintained his slick record. The Repsol Honda rider has always won the German MotoGP.
After being canceled due to the corona virus pandemic in 2020, the German MotoGP was again held at the Sachsenring on Sunday (20/6/2021). Marquez will start from fifth position.
Although he will start the race from a pretty good position in the German MotoGP, Marc Marquez is not targeting victory. Given his physical condition that has not been maximized after his comeback from a broken right arm injury, Marquez is only targeting the top five.
“I have no problem not being able to pole because I didn’t target that. After the two previous circuits I barely made it into Q2, the target was to fight and be closer to the front and we won it,” Marquez said as reported Motorsport.
“The pole position has been broken and tomorrow the winning streak will end, we are not here to win. But we’ll see if we can get closer to the front, that’s the target.”
“We can’t think about winning because there’s nowhere to take it, we can’t think about that.”
“Top five is a target that can happen, but also has to happen. If the podium is not completely out of consideration, but the race must also be perfect, something that is difficult to achieve,” he said.
Marc Marquez has so far never won in MotoGP 2021. His best result is finishing seventh in MotoGP Portugal. While in the last three races, he failed to finish.
