Jorge Martin emerged victorious in an exhilarating battle against MotoGP champion Francesco Bagnaia, clinching the German Grand Prix on Sunday. Despite their bikes making contact, both riders managed to maintain their balance.

The Spanish rider successfully fended off the challenge from Ducati’s Italian racer in the final 10 laps, effectively reducing Bagnaia’s lead in the championship to a mere 16 points.

In a heart-stopping moment, their bikes brushed against each other just two laps before the checkered flag, but Martin, representing Pramac Racing, crossed the finish line a mere 0.064 of a second ahead of Bagnaia.

This triumph marked Martin’s first grand prix victory since August 2021, while his French teammate Johann Zarco secured third place.

Martin accomplished a remarkable weekend double, having already emerged victorious in the Saturday sprint at the Sachsenring circuit.

At the age of 25, Martin surpassed pole-sitter Bagnaia on the third lap but relinquished the lead to the 26-year-old champion with 10 laps remaining. However, Martin made a striking comeback, reclaiming the lead. Both riders managed to stay upright after their momentary contact before Martin sealed his second grand prix win, his previous one achieved during the Styrian Grand Prix in 2021.
