Ducati’s Jack Miller leads opening practice for the 2022 German MotoGP on a bright and sunny Sachsenring, his first track session since confirming a switch to KTM next season.

Barcelona podium finisher and last year’s Sachsenring pole qualifier Johann Zarco set the early pace, before Miller and reigning world champion Fabio Quartararo took the lead in the mid-45s.

Francesco Bagnaia made a Ducati Lenovo one-two behind teammate Miller on the doorstep of the final ten minutes.

Takaaki Nakagami made a strong comeback from the Catalunya disaster at Turn 1 with LCR Honda finishing fifth.

Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Vinales officially debuted the new Aprilia fairing, seen at the test in Barcelona, ​​en route to sixth and eleventh place respectively.

The top 15 riders were covered by less than half a second this morning.

Andrea Dovizioso, Pol Espargaro and the already injured Alex Rins all fell in quick succession into Turn One during the mid-stage of the session.

Rins, whose left wrist remains broken from Barcelona, ​​took no further part in the session. Espargaro returned only to fall again in Turn 1, this time a nasty highside, while Dovizioso recovered to eighth (on new rubber).

Medium tires, front and rear, were the compound choice of choice in FP1.

This weekend will see a new winner of German MotoGP for the first time since 2013, with Marc Marquez – undefeated at the Sachsenring since the 125cc class in 2011 – absent from the event as he continues to recover from a fourth surgery on his right arm. . Marquez is again replaced by HRC test rider and home Sachsenring hero Stefan Bradl.

Meanwhile, Fabio Quartararo leads the MotoGP standings with 22 points over Aleix Espargaro, after the win in Catalunya was combined with the Aprilia rider’s final lap blunder.

But the pair have now both broken away from three-time 2022 race winner Enea Bastianini, whose third DNF in five races has left Quartararo Gresini Ducati rider 53 behind, with Johann Zarco (Pramac Ducati) and Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo) on the heels.

Bastianini’s crew chief Alberto Giribuola is absent this weekend due to Covid. Gresini Technical Coordinator Sergio Verbena will step in as his replacement.

At Pramac Ducati, Jorge Martin will ride for the first time since surgery to fix a nerve problem in his right hand.

Bagnaia and Alex Rins were eliminated by Takaaki Nakagami’s scary accident during the race in Barcelona. Rins (who suffered a wrist fracture) and Nakagami (who was hospitalized overnight) both missed the post-race test due to the incident, but will be back in action this weekend.

The Sachsenring is the shortest and slowest track on the MotoGP calendar, with a length of just 3.7km and a longest straight of 700m. The track also has a strong anti-clockwise direction of 10 left turns compared to 3 right turns, including the infamous ‘waterfall’ descent at turn 11.

The Sachsenring also marks the middle of the scheduled 20-round World Championship season.
