2021 MotoGP and Formula 1 World Championships Live On DStv This Sunday ~Omonaijablog





Viewers on DStv can look forward to the ninth round of the 2021 MotoGP World Championship, the Dutch TT, live from the TT Circuit Assen in the Netherlands on the afternoon of Sunday 27 June 2021 at 12:55pm on SuperSport Action (DStv channel 210). Later on in the afternoon at 2pm, the eighth round of the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship, the Styrian Grand Prix, will air live from the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria on SuperSport Grandstand & SuperSport Motorsport (DStv channel 201 & 215).

Fans of Grand Prix Motorcycling Racing watched Repsol Honda's Marc Marquez claim his first MotoGP race win this past weekend since suffering a career-threatening arm injury last year. The Spaniard was largely untroubled as he completed his fairytale comeback victory at the Sachsenring in Germany, 581 days after he last took the chequered flag at the Valencia Grand Prix in 2019.

The victory brings a sense of relief for Marquez, who fractured his right humerus in the 2020 season-opening Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez last July. He did not race again all year, making his comeback only at Portuguese Grand Prix in April, the third race of the 2021 season.

The Riders’ Championship continues to be dominated by Monster Energy Yamaha’s Fabio Quartararo, who finished third at the German Grand Prix to extend his lead at the top of the standings to 22 points. His closest chaser is fellow Frenchman Johann Zarco of Pramac Ducati, with the Ducati Lenovo pair of Jack Miller and Francesco Bagnaia nine and ten points further back respectively.

Quartararo’s teammate Maverick Vinales was the last winner at the Dutch TT (in 2019, with last year’s race scrapped due to the Covid-19 pandemic), but the Spaniard endured an awful weekend in Germany with his worst-ever qualifying (21st) and a lowly 19th place finish.

Meanwhile, in the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship, The Styrian Grand Prix will see Red Bull Racing-Honda and Max Verstappen looking to continue the momentum they built this past weekend with victory at the French Grand Prix. Verstappen claimed a third win of the season and stretched his Drivers' Championship lead to 12 points over Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton (who finished second), with the Dutchman recovering from an early mistake to fully capitalise on his team's aggressive two-stop strategy.

Red Bull also had Sergio Perez come home in third place to see themselves 26 points clear of Mercedes in the Constructors' Championship, with team principal Christian Horner delighted with their performance ahead of back-to-back races at their 'home track' in Austria.

Seven-time and reigning world champion Hamilton insists that he did all he could at the French GP, and believes the ‘Silver Arrows’ will need to up their performance – especially on the straights – if they are to compete at the high-speed Red Bull Ring.

Lower down the grid, Ferrari will be hoping for a much better weekend after a dismal showing in France, where Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz finished 16th and 11th respectively.
