AFTER HIS CRASH IN WARM UP, ESPARGARÓ REMAINS UNDER OBSERVATION AT THE CHEMNITZ HOSPITAL
Scott Redding finished 15th in the GP of Germany, the ninth round of the MotoGP World Championship season. It was a comeback ride from the twentieth spot on the starting grid, but in the first part of the race, an even better result seemed likely. Scott started well from the seventh row, finishing the first lap in thirteenth place, just behind the group which would then battle for a spot in the top ten. Scott held the position for two thirds of the race but then a significant drop in rear tyre performance forced him to settle for his final position.
Aleix Espargaró was not on the starting grid due to the injury suffered in a crash during the morning warm up. Aleix, who does not have any fractures, remains under observation in the Chemnitz hospital after suffering a bad thoracic trauma in the left rib area.
