The first triumph of the Lleida season has not been without controversy. Márquez himself went to meet his rival after the race to explain and both were called by Race Direction and received a warning, Márquez for a maneuver considered in the limit of acceptable and the Swiss for hitting the motorcycle of the Spanish when he recriminated overtaking once the finish line has been crossed.
“To be fifth after what was done in the free practice, in the qualifying, and to be ahead when facing the last lap can not satisfy you. I did not like the wrong maneuver of Márquez “explained Luthi after the race. For his part, Márquez told motogp.com: “I have been three or four times quite aggressively, I have seen that I also had to get a bit aggressive to try to defend the position and from there I knew that Luthi was going to get ahead and I was going to pull hard to open a gap, I’ve stuck to him, I had planned to cover him in the last lap and that’s what I did. ”
