Jonas Folger, back in the Sachsenring circuit back in 2017, could not cheer on his own home when he finished 17th in the German GP.

Folger, who temporarily replaced Khairul Idham Pawi in Moto2 with PETRONAS Sprinta Racing team for three rounds starting in Catalunya, June 16, finished his last match with 39 minutes 53.333 seconds.

The note was less than 18.232s behind this time winner from the Marc ESP 0 Marc VDS troop, Alex Marquez. South Africa rider Brad Binder emerged as runner-up while Folger’s fellow Marcel Schrotter cursed German supporters when completing a podium stage in third place.

“It’s a good race, it’s not perfect but at the end I’m happy with it,” Folger said.

“I did not make a lot of mistakes and after three races on this machine, we learned a lot about how to get faster but I lost a lot of time with a group of leaders in the opening rivals.

“If I get better at the qualifying session, we may be able to get closer to the next group because my speed is not far with 10 forward riders.

“I am grateful to PETRONAS Sprinta Racing for giving me the chance to ride the Moto2 motorcycles back and give me a sense of race sensation.

“I have decided that I want to go back to rival Moto2 next year and I hope to be able to find a good team like this.”

Two years ago, Folger was on stage at the podium in Sachsenring with second place in the MotoGP premier class. The 26-year-old also completed the Moto2 race in second place in 2016.
