A gruelling German Grand Prix came to a lacklustre end for the Repsol Honda Team with Bradl in 16th as pain forces Pol Espargaro to retire.
Home hero Stefan Bradl finished on the edge of the points after gritting his teeth through a physically demanding German GP. Crossing the line in 16th, Bradl completed the race and gained more data for Honda HRC as they continue to work on improving the Honda RC213V.
Unfortunately, Pol Espargaro’s injuries from his falls in Free Practice 1 proved too much in combination with the heat and the length of the race, forcing his retirement. An impressive launch off the line had the #44 battling for the top ten but he was forced to watch on as he slowly dropped through the field as the pain increased.
The Repsol Honda Team now head directly to Assen for the eleventh race of the season before the mid-year Summer Break.
