The Roman Emperor reigns in Germany.

Meanwhile, Nakano overtook Abe for a place on the podium, as Jacque overtook Barros into the first turn on the final lap for fifth. That battle continued all the way to the line as the Brazilian slipped inside Jacque at the final turn to reagin the place.

But the race belonged to Max Biaggi who took his third win of 2001 and led a Marlboro Yamaha one-two, with Checa third and Shinya Nakano holding off Abe for the final podium place.

Biaggi was naturally ecstatic as he completed his slow down lap adorned with Italian flags, as he waved delightedly to the fans before returning to the pits to literally leap into the arms of his Marlboro Yamaha team – who must have known by then that the points gap had shrunk to just 10 points between Biaggi and leader Rossi, who could only muster a seventh place finish.

Full results to follow…

1. Biaggi
2. Checa +3.249secs
3. Nakano +3.642secs
4. Abe +4.784secs
5. Barros +21.164secs
6. Jacque +21.385secs
7. Rossi +21.945secs
8. Capirossi +22.485secs
