Bagnaia faced significant pressure from Alex Marquez over several laps, but around the race’s midpoint, he managed to increase his pace.

By lap 15, Bagnaia overtook Morbidelli to regain second position and then set his sights on Martin.

During the latter half of the race, Martin and Bagnaia engaged in a fierce exchange, with both riders consistently matching each other’s lap times at an interval of just 1:23 seconds on every Sachsenring circuit.

However, Martin experienced a crash at the first corner under circumstances somewhat reminiscent of his incident while leading during the MotoGP Spanish Grand Prix at the end of April.

Jorge Martin conceded to making an error during the 2024 German MotoGP race, attributing his fall at turn 1 to loss of grip on the front tire.

He clarified that he had repeated the trajectory from a previous lap but ultimately succumbed to a low-side crash.

Despite feeling confident, Martin acknowledged that his mistake was running wide by one meter before attempting a turn, leading to the mishap.

In stark contrast, Bagnaia maintained his lead with a four-second advantage and successfully safeguarded his championship position upon crossing the finish line after 30 laps.
