Honda have been struggling for the past 18 months in MotoGP and there is a number of contributing factors to these issues. First of all, the injury to Marc Marquez was undoubtedly the biggest factor to their struggles and the loss of Cal Crutchlow to Yamaha is a big miss for Honda\'s development of the bike throughout the season.
However, there is some optimism for Honda as they seemed to make some small steps at the Catalunya test after Round 7 of the championship.
Will we see Honda and Marc Marquez on the top step at the Sachsenring? It will be interesting to see.
Can the other Honda riders of Pol Espargaro and Nakagami make any improvements?
