Vietti achieves best result of the season at Sachsenring


The Italian finishes the German GP in fifth position, with Marcel Schrötter seventeenth.

Red Bull KTM Ajo concluded the last round before the summer break on Sunday. Sachsenring witnessed a great race by Celestino Vietti, who fought for the podium until the last corner, finishing in fifth position. Marcel Schrötter completed his home Grand Prix with a good feeling and a 17th place.

Vietti started the race from pole position, having earned the spot after going through Q1 on Saturday. He got off the line well and pushed hard on the opening laps, returning to the lead and then breaking away. However, after the midway point he was overtaken, although he remained in the podium positions. Vietti was still in with a chance of the rostrum until the final corner, but missed out and placed fifth. Nevertheless, it was his best result of the season and his best ever at the German track.

Schrötter was riding at his home Grand Prix. The Red Bull KTM Ajo stand-in rider had gone from strength to strength throughout the weekend, and on Sunday had a solid performance and a good feeling. He tried to manage his tyres optimally to reach the points over the course of the 25 laps, but a collision with another rider caused him to drop down the order when fighting to score points. He crossed the finish line in 17th place.

The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 team now begin the summer break, and will return to competition in three weeks with the British Grand Prix.

Aki Ajo – Team Manager
“We are very happy about how Celestino managed today’s race. In the last few races we have understood more and more the new package and he made great progress in each session. Even though we didn’t get the podium, he was very fast today and he improved lap by lap. We are confident and we are sure that we can fight for better results in the future. Marcel has once again shown the talent that he has and that he already demonstrated in Moto2 in the last few years. He had a solid weekend and even closed the gap to other riders, fighting for points. We would like to thank him for his work with us during these weeks together, and wish him the best of luck for the future”.


“I am really happy with the weekend at this difficult track. We have done a good job and have improved a lot. We have closed the gap to those in front and we achieved pole, so it has been a great GP. During the race I tried everything -maybe too much in the beginning, because I lost some tyre grip at the end, but I tried to fight. We go into the break with a very positive feeling, so we’re looking forward to keeping this going for the rest of the season.”

“First of all, thank you to everyone who has supported me: To Aki Ajo and everyone inside the team. It’s a pleasure to work with them. The goal today was to get into the points and it was not posible, so I am a bit disappointed, especially at my home GP. I tried to save the tyres to be stronger at the end, but that plan didn’t work out. Unfortunately, I also got clipped by another rider and I lost positions, but that’s racing. Again, thank you so much.”
