#GermanGP - July 3, 2024

The Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 squad has travelled to the east as a new race week already awaits us, with the Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland, closing the first half of the 2024 MotoGP™ World Championship before the paddock goes on a summer break. After a tricky Dutch Grand Prix, both Pedro Acosta and Augusto Fernandez will be eager to give their all the Sachsenring, a layout where we expect the RC16s of both riders to be more competitive.

As every week, Pedro Acosta will be making his debuts in the premier class on the 3.671 km layout of thirteen corners including ten on the left, the shortest of the calendar. Assen was a challenging weekend for the rookie with a sad end unfortunately, as we saw the #31 crash in the final race while he was on his way for a solid 7th place. We learn and we move on, and that is what Acosta will be looking to do this week in Germany, on a layout that he has quite enjoyed in the past, as we saw him win two times in three Grand Prix participations, the most recent being last season in Moto2™. Let’s see how the rookie manages the RC16 on the Sachsenring, as we hope to see him fight for the top positions!

Augusto Fernandez scored points in Assen after another challenging campaign at the TT Circuit Assen, a small reward for all the efforts put in by both the team and himself to find solutions to improve his feeling on the bike. Sachsenring was good to Fernandez back in 2023 as he finished 11th of the German Grand Prix. While the situation is different a year later, the Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 team continues to put all the efforts possible to improve the Spaniard’s performances and close the gap on the rest of the riders.

Final round before the summer break, so you don’t want to miss the track action! As usual, we will start on Friday with Free Practice 1 at 10:45 local time (GMT+2) for forty-five minutes, which will be followed in the afternoon with Practice at 15:00, for an hour. The first highlights of the week not to miss will be on Saturday with the qualifying sessions starting at 10:50, just shortly after Free Practice 2. If races at the short Sachsenring are entertaining to watch, wait for the Tissot Sprint at 15:00 on Saturday afternoon, it could be one not to miss out on! Finally, after ten minutes of warm up in the morning, Sunday will see the main race start at 14:00 (GMT+2), for 30 laps. Let’s turn left, and let’s get on the gas team!

Championship: 6th
Points: 101
"We are heading to Sachsenring, a track where I have a bit more luck in general, and I think that it will suit our bike better. Our weekend in Assen was not bad overall, we were able to do a good race and be competitive until the crash, on a track that is normally not one of my best. Our approach in Germany will be the same as usual, step by step on a new track, so let’s see how we feel on Friday first! I am looking forward to it, let’s have a good one before the summer break!"

Championship: 17th
Points: 15
"I am looking forward to heading to Sachsenring and I hope to be more competitive than Assen, where we struggled quite a lot. It will be very different to Assen, with fast corners and a lot of braking, but it is a layout that I like very much. Last year was not bad for us, we are in different places right now, but I want to be more competitive, so we will give our best.

"Time for the Sachsenring, the last round before the summer break! This back-to-back will be a good thing for Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 after a quite disappointing Dutch GP overall. Sachsenring has a very different layout than Assen, and I think that it will be a good opportunity for us to bounce back. It is the shortest track of the championship, left-hand sided, where you spend a lot of time on lean angles, and braking hard. We believe that Pedro Acosta will enjoy these specific characteristics, he won last season in Moto2 with a decent gap, and he will be extremely motivated to perform after his crash in the final lap in Assen. Augusto Fernandez’ Dutch campaign was tricky too, but we believe that he has potential to do better in Germany, because it is a layout that suits him better. The weather looks a bit uncertain at the moment, so we should get ready for different scenarios to happen. Let’s put everything together to start the summer break in the best conditions!
