The official communication of the FIM on the case of Marquez
The FIM with a statement announced that the case of Marc Marquez’s penalty will end up in the Court of Appeals, where the final ruling on the issue will come in the coming days.
“Following the appeal by Marc Marquez and the Repsol Honda Team, the FIM sport commissioners have decided to refer the matter to the MotoGP Court of Appeal ‘for appropriate resolution of the case,'” is the message published on the official MotoGp website.
“Last Sunday, FIM MotoGP sport commissioners handed Marquez a double long lap penalty to be served in the Michelin Grand Prix of Argentina. On Tuesday, the FIM MotoGP stewards issued the following: ‘Considering the injury that has emerged and the non-participation of Marc Marquez, rider number 93, in the Michelin Grand Prix of Argentina, and in order to respect the decision made by the FIM MotoGP Stewards Panel, the double long lap penalty will be served by the rider in the next MotoGP race™ in which he will participate.”
“This triggered the appeal by Marquez and the Repsol Honda Team. The FIM appeal commissioners referred the case to the MotoGP appeals court.”
