Marc Marques on His Fifth Win At German GP:
Marc Marquez, P1: “Honestly, it was a very difficult race, I knew before the weekend this was a circuit where I needed to attack and my target was 25 points. Before the race, everything was under control and I had the right tyres, and I thought my teammate would be the main rival. Then at the start, I was just trying to concentrate and then Jonas passed me, I was thinking it was good to have another rider between me and the others but then on the pitboard, it was +0.1, +0.1… I started thinking ‘ok, what are you doing here?!’ then I realized he was going to be there to the end. I was pushing myself, I’m happy. It’s amazing how before I was 37 points down! Everything is very tight and it’s almost starting from zero. We’ll try. Also, something special I promised to myself was that after Hayden’s accident, my first win would be for him and his family so this is for them.”- As quoted to MotoGP.com

Jonas Fogler On Finishing Second Despite Having Early Lead
Jonas Folger, P2: “It was the first time for me to stay in this kind of position. I almost lost it at the first corner when Petrucci hit me, but I knew from the Warm Up I had great pace. I was following Marc and noticed my third sector was very strong. I was leading the race and I couldn’t believe it, at the Sachsenring! At the end I let Marc go, he has more experience and I learned a lot. I tried to save the tyres and I was sure that until the end I would be able to stay behind him – I was sure I’d be able to try on the last lap but then I went really wide and lost more than a second. Trying to recover I almost crashed two or three times so I thought ‘ok’. But it was a great experience riding with Marc and Dani.” – As quoted to MotoGP.com
