It was great first couple laps. Spies came out on fire... and even after getting down he still came in just over 30 sec back at the finish. Showed good pace coming back through traffic considering he'd been on his backside for some of that.

I am getting a little tirred of listening to the BBC comentators continue to talk up Crutchlow though...seems that they'd love nothing more for him to get Ben's ride next year. I thought Dovi came through huge and to break Stoner's podium run on the Honda must make him feel pretty good considering, but barely got him a mention.

Moto2 was a craker for sure...its almost a crime to brodcast these with comercials anymore. Anyone care to bring in the link to kick off this weeks edition of the M.Marquez show. Right or wrong to begin with, somehow the post race penalty from race direction was overturned.

Spies better pull his together considering crutchlow and dovi are hunting for his ride and I really thought M.Marquez would have been penalized after that awsome save . He was out of the race line , got passed and came back in taking out Pol Espargaró

Official FIM press release

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."
