2021 MotoGP German GP – How to watch, session times & more

MotoGP travels to the Sachsenring this weekend for the German Grand Prix. Here's the full schedule for the eight round of the season.

The Sachsenring is one of Marc Marquez's favourite tracks, with the Spanish rider having been unbeaten at the German venue since he stepped up to the premier class in 2013.

However, that streak could end this year, with Marquez struggling for pace since making his return in Portugal.

That means this year's race would likely be fought by Ducati and Yamaha riders, with Miguel Oliveria's victory in Barcelona suggesting that KTM could also join the battle.

The German GP will begin at 14:00 local time, one hour before the start of the Formula 1 race at Paul Ricard.
