Yes it is. Honda haven't lost here in what 5, 6 years? Same goes for Marquez.

You won't find another circuit on the calendar that is more a Honda track with such a track record. COTA the closest and it's only been a few years there runnig.

Marquez consistently always goes with the stiffer front compond as do the other Honda riders who often follow. It accentuates the bikes strengths and his.

The elevation change at Sachsenring make it a HP track in desguise. Moving weight against Gravity is pure work, having more power means doing it in less time. A short track means gaining that advantage 30 times over rather than 20.

The yahmaha is a corner speed machine. Looking at the sector times you see this in sector 3, the faster series of left turns as the track begins to unwind and then come down the water fall.

Here Rossi is nearly two tenths quicker than Marquez, Lorenzo quicker too, but both only to end up a tenth or two behind on the Lap.

The suzukis too were as quick as Marquez through those turns but then gave up three tenths in the last sector which is the heavy braking zone at base of water fall, highly loading the front, and then the steep steep uphill final corner and run to the line which is all HP, somthing suzuki still lack significantly.


Turns in third gear or more, flat track, of a flowing nature are yamaha. It is their tuning fork nature. What makes Honda do well in the bottom half of the gear box, stop and goes, and HP is likewise their nature.

Crutchlow better not go back to Ducati, it was mentioned this morning in the commentary so I hope it's just a fluke.
