Jorge Lorenzo returned to the podium at the Germany Grand Prix in third, with teammate Valentino Rossi just behind in fourth.

A rain shower before the start of the race resulted in a mass pit-lane start. A group of 14 riders including Rossi, Lorenzo, Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa started from the pits having decided to swap to their dry bikes after the Warm Up lap. Stefan Bradl was one of the few riders to change to slicks on the grid, although he soon lost the advantage.

Pastor Maldonado is looking forward to a major power boost at Hockenheim next weekend.

The 2012 Spanish Grand Prix winner, who has had a dire campaign since switching from Williams to Lotus over the winter, has yet to score a solitary point this year as the Enstone-based team grapple with poor pace and reliability.

But things could be about to get better.

Even though he hasn’t won a race since the 2013 Indianapolis 500, Tony Kanaan has become a force again in the Verizon IndyCar Series.

In the past two races over a seven-day period Kanaan has led a total of 325 laps including 247 in Saturday’s night’s 300-lap race at Iowa Speedway. Despite those numbers as the dominant car in each race, Kanaan finished 11th at Pocono on July 6 and finished third at Iowa after race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay and second-place finisher Josef Newgarden blew past him on fresh tires.

There’s been drama in the build up to this afternoon’s Mobil 1 Sportscar Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, as the Chip Gansssi Racing Riley-Ford has suffered a major setback in today’s race due to an accident on the reconnoissance lap.

Memo Rojas was at the wheel of the No. 01 Telmex-sponsored DP when he lost control in Turn 2 on a damp circuit and made heavy impact with the barriers.

The Mexican driver was evaluated and released from the infield medical center but the car sustained considerable damage to the front, rear and left side.
