Aegerter stripped of Misano win, Luthi awarded five more points

  Aegerter stripped of Misano win, Luthi awarded five more points Dominique Aegerter has been stripped of his MisanoMoto2 win after the Kiefer team had been found to be using an illegal oil in qualifying, gifting Tom Luthi the victory and five extra points. Swiss rider Aegerter brilliantly fended off Interwetten rider and countryman Luthi in treacherous conditions at Misano in September to secure his first win since 2014. However, on the Saturday following qualifying, FIM technical checks found Aegerter‘s Kiefer machine had been running an oil not supplied by the championship’s official supplier. A hearing was had at the Aragon round, where a second sample of oil was tested. The results once again came up positive for the illegal oil and Aegerter has since been disqualified from the event. An FIM statement read: “On 9 September 2017 at post–qualifying technical control after the Moto2 Qualifying Practice of the Gran PremioTribulMastercard Di San Marino E Della Riviera Di Rimini, you were found to be using an oil outside the FIMMoto2 specifications. “You were summoned to attend a hearing with the FIMMotoGP Stewards Panel during the Grand PremioMovistarDeAragon. You attended the heading and acknowledged the facts presented and elected to have the B sample tested. “The B sample test results were received, showing the same results as the A sample, with both samples failing to comply with the regulations. “For the above reasons, the FIMMotoGP Stewards Panel has imposed upon you a disqualification from the results of the entire event.

Morbidelli‘s afternoon got off to a tricky start when his bike stopped as he was exiting pitlane for his first laps. His session failed to improve from there and he ended the day almost a second adrift of his nearest championship rival in fifth.

Marquez wins as Morbidelli extends championship lead

  Marquez wins as Morbidelli extends championship lead Alex Marquez took his third win of the season in a wet shortened Japanese Moto2 race as team-mateMorbidelli extended his standings lead after a tough race for nearest rival Tom Luthi. Like the Moto3 race that preceded it, Moto2 ran to a shortened race distance of 15 laps due to delays in the morning warm-up sessions. Pole man TakaakiNakagami stormed into the lead off the line, while Luthi made a crucial launch from 11th to seventh as championship leader Morbidelli made up just one place to 13th. By the fourth lap, Morbidelli had only found himself in 11th as Luthi locked horns with HafizhSyahrin and Dominique Aegerter over sixth spot. However, Luthi‘s afternoon quickly went awry as issues with his visor saw his pace drop off – an off-track excursion at the start of the fourth lap and dropping him to 10th failed to help his cause. With his pace rapidly deteriorating, Luthi was powerless to stop Morbidelli from craving through to take 10th on lap six. The Italian proceeded to advance forward up to eighth spot, while Luthi came under threat from behind. Fortunately for the Swiss rider, the hard-charging Brad Binder – who was two seconds quicker than Luthi – crashed while hunting him down on lap eight, offering the struggling Interwetten rider some respite. At the front, Marquez hounded home hero Nakagami, and eventually broke the Japanese rider’s resolve at Turn 11 in the closing stages.
