MotoGP travels to the Sachsenring this weekend for the German Grand Prix. Here's how you can watch qualifying on Saturday in your country.

MotoGP German Grand Prix qualifying - Start time, how to watch

Marc Marquez has been unbeaten at the Sachsenring since 2010, taking 10 consecutive victories at the German venue across the three classes.

The Honda rider topped first practice of the weekend on Friday but dropped to 12th in FP2 after opting not to switch to a new set of tyres for his final run.

That put the KTM of Miguel Oliveira on the top of the timesheets, the Portuguese rider still fresh from securing the marque's first win of 2021 in the Catalan Grand Prix.

What time does qualifying for the German MotoGP start? 

Q1 will begin at 14:10 local time at the Sachsenring, followed by the pole-deciding Q2 at 14:35. Each session will last 15 minutes. 

  • Date: Saturday, June 19th
  • Start time: 12:10 GMT / 13:10 BST / 14:10 CEST / 14:10 SAT / 15:10 EAT /   08:10 ET / 05:10 PT / 22:10 AEST / 21:10 JST / 17:40 IST
