Moto2 interesting, luthi looked invincible yesterday and i was expecting a runaway victory. Bit closer in fp3 so my
enthusiasm has been slightly dampened.  always strange to see iannone towards the sharp end in free practices!

Gran Premi Aperol de Catalunya: decision of the Race Direction and FIM Stewards

On Sunday 03 June during the Moto2 Race, rider Marc MARQUEZ (SPA) rode in an irresponsible manner causing danger to rider Pol ESPARGARO (SPA) which is an infringement of the article 1.21.2 of the 2012 FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Regulations.

The Race Direction decided to impose on the rider a time penalty of 1 minute to be added on his race time.

An appeal has been lodged with the FIM Stewards.

The FIM Stewards did not confirm the decision of the Race Direction and cancelled the penalty.

An appeal may now be lodged with the FIM CDI.

Official press release from Honda Racing (official Moto2 engine provider) states:

Marquez reinstated after Catalan GP appeal

Marc Márquez (Team CatalunyaCaixa Repsol-Suter) has been returned to third place in today's Catalan Grand Prix Moto2 race following an appeal by his team. The Spaniard had been given a one-minute penalty by Race Direction for his part in a collision with Pol Espargaro (Pons 40 HP Tuenti-Kalex) in the final stages of the 23 lap event. But the FIM stewards did not confirm the decision of the Race Direction and cancelled the penalty. This latest decision demotes Esteve Rabat (Pons 40 HP Tuenti Kalex) to fourth place.

Marc Márquez

"The race was so hard and difficult, especially because Andrea was so strong. I followed him I thought maybe I could pass in the last laps. But he was too strong. During the final laps I felt comfortable behind Andrea, but then I made a small mistake and nearly crashed. Then I had a collision with Pol. I want to say sorry to him but I didn't know he was right behind me. These 16 points are important for the championship because you cannot win every race and especially because this was a hard weekend after we had a little confusion with bike settings on Friday."
