Marc Marquez leads 2017 MotoGP Rankings after German GP win
Ops, he did it again! Marc Marquez is the new leader of the 2017 MotoGP Championship. It was the Spaniard second win in 2017 - but consistency and unpredictable tires had fired up the MotoGP ranking once again.
Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Jonas Folger finished second at the Sachsenring. It was his first ever podium, and better at his home race in Germany! Dani Pedrosa managed to finish third place.
We have had 5 different race winners in 9 races. Only Yamaha rider Maverick Viñales has won 3 races, and by finishing fourth this weekend at the German GP, he kept his second place in the overall standings.
Ducati Andrea Dovizioso has also 2 wins this year, back-to-back at Italy and Catalunya - and he trails the leader in third place. Yamaha Valentino Rossi has only 1 win to this name - at the great race at Assen - not yet a great year for Rossi; even though Assen was great for him, he have had tire issues in other races (like France, Jerez and Catalunya). Still fourth place in the rankings is not bad for the multiple world champion.
Repsol Honda Dani Pedrosa completes the top 5 - all with more than 100 points.
So far this year all of the top 5 riders have had their up and downs - the one suprise here is Ducati and Andrea Dovizioso - probably not many expected that Ducati could win 2 races at this first half of the 2017 season. The big question now is when do you think Jorge Lorenzo can start winning races too?
