Honda appeals Marc Marquez’s suspension after a row with Miguel Oliveira – MotoGP

Honda appeals Marc Marquez’s suspension after a row with Miguel Oliveira – MotoGP

The FIM reported that Marc Marquez would have to comply with the ‘two long laps’ sanctioned at the Portuguese Grand Prix at the next race he entered and Honda appealed the decision. The Spanish rider collided with Miguel Oliveira (RNF Aprilia) in the third round of the race held on Sunday, in Portimao, and received a penalty, which should be fulfilled at the Argentine Grand Prix, already next weekend. Marc Marquez suffered a broken right hand after crashing at the Portuguese Grand Prix and will miss the trip to the Termas de Río Hondo, so some thought he would be excused from the penalty.

However, the FIA ​​has made it clear that the two “long lapses” must be met at the next Grand Prix involving Marc Marquez, a decision Honda disagrees with.

“With regard to the sanction imposed on Marc Marquez by the Fédération Internationale de Motociclismo, following the incident at the Portuguese Grand Prix, the Repsol Honda Team considers that the change consists of a change of criteria in the way the sanction should be applied, and that this change has been decided Just two days after the initial decision. Something that does not comply with the FIA ​​regulations for the World Championship. For this reason, Honda intends to take advantage of all the means available to it, through the regulations, in order to defend its rights and legitimate interests, which it considers to have been infringed after the last decision which was adopted, after I appealed to the FIA ​​Appellate Commissioners,” the Japanese team explained on Wednesday, in a statement.

It must be remembered that Miguel Oliveira will also not participate in the Argentine Grand Prix, due to the injuries he suffered in his right leg, as a result of the fall caused by Marc Marquez.
