Marc Márquez receives the precautionary measure for his sanction


The MotoGP Court of Appeal announced this Thursday the granting of the precautionary suspension of the sanction that Marc Márquez has been carrying since the first race of the World Championship in Portimao (Portugal), after the appeal filed by his team, Repsol Honda.

“The Court of Appeal grants a stay of execution and a final decision on the appeal will be issued in due time,” says the note on the official World Cup website.

The man from Cervera was penalized on March 26 in the Portuguese race with a double ‘long lap’ for his incident with Miguel Oliveira. After just two laps of the World Championship, Márquez collided with Jorge Martín (Ducati) and, with a blockage on the brake, took the local rider ahead.

The eight-time world champion was unable to compete in the last Argentine Grand Prix, the second round of the World Cup, after undergoing emergency surgery for a fractured thumb bone in his right hand, and this week he was also announced to leave Las Américas.

The sanction was up in the air after the appeal presented by the Repsol Honda Team, since the FIM Appeal Stewards referred the case to the MotoGP Court of Appeal, which suspends the sanction until the appeal is resolved.
