Thomas Luthi delay Stefan Bradl the opportunity to embrace the title of world champion Moto2 class. Tight in the race at the Sepang Circuit, Malaysia, Sunday (23.10.11), Luthi be winners, while Bradl had to settle for second.
Actually, Bradl will ensure themselves a winner this 600cc class, if the number one podium. The reason, Marc Marquez, who became the only rival in the hunt for the crown of world champion Moto2 class can not be performed because the conditions did not allow. But the German rider may also be less fortunate, because the race was stopped early, when two laps remaining.
With the results of this 17th series, Bradl have to wait until the series final in Valencia on 6 November. Now, Bradl 23 points ahead, so he only needs three digits match to beat Marquez, who crashed during Friday's first free practice, due to the negligence marshal signaled the track conditions were slippery.
Actually, Bradl started the race with very convincing. When the red lights mark the battle began, he immediately jumped in front to lead the course of the race, after passing Luthi, Interwetten rider Sutter, who holds the pole position.
When the race two laps remaining, Luthi risky maneuver at the final corner. With a very high speed, hard braking after he did overtake Bradl, who was trying patiently waiting for a chance to be in front again.
However, not long ago, raised a red flag stopped the race mark. The decision was taken following a terrible accident that befell Axel Pons. As a result, Luthi be winners and Bradl have to wait until the last series to embrace Moto2 world championship. Pol Espargaro was third, followed by Alex de Angelis, Dominique Aegerter (Technomag-CIP Suter), Mika Kallio (Marc VDS Suter), Michele Pirro (Gresini Moriwaki) and Aleix Espargaro (Pons Kalex) in eighth.
Looking at the performance since the start of the season, the opportunity to become world champion Bradl very wide open. With only need three points, not a difficult job for him. Even so, he must remain vigilant, because Marquez will definitely perform all-out in the ultimate series that took place in front of the public itself, if the conditions are already fit. 125cc world champion was certainly determined to close the 2011 season with a victory, although the chance of becoming world champion in his debut as a Moto2 rider is very thin.
