Marquez masters wild German GP

Marc Marquez has produced a masterclass ride to win the German MotoGP after running off track in the wet early stages before scything up the pack with a perfectly-timed early switch to slicks on a drying track. 

Cal Crutchlow has matched his best ever MotoGP finish with second, while Andrea Dovizioso pinched third place from Scott Redding on the final lap. 

Valentino Rossi suffered a late drop back through the field due to a late pit stop, emerging on intermediates rather than slicks which saw Andrea Iannone, Dani Pedrosa and Jack Miller finish head of the Italian. 

Team-mate Jorge Lorenzo was never a contender and finished in 15th. 

Home favourite Stefan Bradl was ruled out of the race having suffered concussion in warm-up while Loris Baz was returning from foot injuries at Mugello.

Maybe Rossi should pay attention to his team's information.
