The Repsol Team’s incredible results at Sachsenring

These figures are a good grounds to be optimistic and think that Marc and Dani will once again be on the top steps of the podium.


Many circuits have hosted the World Championships over the years and the Repsol Honda Team has had many success stories since it began racing, but few tracks have seen our team achieve such positive results as this one. Only on the Jerez Circuit, where we once again saw a historic double win for Dani Pedrosa and Marc Márquez, has the team chalked up the same  number wins for our colours as in Germany, with 11.

Sachsenring is perfect for our riders. So much so that both Dani Pedrosa and Marc Márquez have won nine of the team’s 11 victories on this circuit, eight of them consecutive (2010–2017). As well as 11 wins, we have garnered 25 podiums on the German track, as many as at the Mugello and Brno circuits but far fewer than the spoils collected at the lucky Jerez circuit, with no less than 32.


Number 93 had the fastest lap on the 3671 metre, 13-bend track, with a time of 1:20.336. He did this in 2015, the year in which he celebrated his third MotoGP Grand Slam on this same circuit: a win, pole, and the fastest lap.

The rider from Cervera has great memories of Sachsenring, as when he was riding in the 125 cc category in 2010, he had another Grand Slam. That year, the Repsol Honda rider took the 125 cc world championship and became the youngest Spanish rider ever to win the world crown in this category. Since then, Marc Márquez has always started in pole position on this circuit, and has also won. This is a truly impressive record, which testifies to Marc´s great performance.

Dani Pedrosa has also had some spectacular results on this track. Sachsenring, the shortest race in the World Championship at 110.1 km, has seen the Repsol Honda Team rider collect the winner’s trophy six times, twice in the 250 cc category and four for MotoGP. Not content with this, Dani has succeeded in stepping onto the podium on another four occasions, in 2009, 2014, 2015 and 2017. In 2014, and 2015, the team also achieved a number of double wins, thanks to Marc Márquez’s performance.

Sachsenring is the shortest track in the World MotoGP Championship, which seems to make it ideal for Dani Pedrosa. The Repsol Honda Team rider has always shown how fast he can go every time he races on the German tarmac, proved by his seven fastest laps, six of them in the top class and one in 250 cc.

These figures are a good grounds to be optimistic and think that Marc and Dani will once again flaunt our colours on the top steps of the podium. In which order? We’d love it to be both of them, but only one can win. and that will be none other than the Repsol Team.
