During Moto3 qualifying, Adrián Fernández was blocked by two mechanics from Sterilgarda Max Racing as he exited the garage. The pilot was waiting for the good hook for the game of contrails, which was obviously not appreciated. Biaggi immediately apologized: “Unacceptable, it is an action not requested by our team, dangerous, which cannot be justified in any way: those responsible will be adequately punished”. Two GP stops and a 2 thousand euro fine for the two mechanics
THE “TACKLE” VIDEO
Unpublished fact and to the limits of the unfortunate during the Moto3 qualifying at Aragon. The Tech3 team has released a video of the exit from the pits of Adrián Fernández, who he was waiting for the good hook for the contrail game. But when he got the green light from Tech3, Fernández was blocked by the obstruction of two mechanics with Husqvarna shirt from Sterilgarda Max Racing by Biaggi, moreover, former team of Fernández, left the team with some rust. Obviously no one had indicated to the mechanics to obstruct any rival, but in the excitement of the Moto3 qualifying, always very chaotic, unfortunately it seems that they ran into a moment of lack of clarity. The Tech3 team has released the video of the episode on social networks, defining it “unacceptable”.
Max Biaggi’s apologies: “Unacceptable behavior!”
Meanwhile, Biaggi himself replied to the video of the episode, publicly apologizing to the Tech3 team for what happened: “Unacceptable behavior! We apologize publicly with the Tech3 Racing team and with Adrián Fernández. It is about an action not requested by our team, dangerouswhich cannot be justified in any way by our code of ethics! Those responsible will be adequately punished“. What happened is therefore a personal initiative of the two mechanics, it is not a directive from Sterilgarda Max Racing. Biaggi’s team hopes to close the affair with these dutiful apologies and an equally dutiful internal reprimand and officer by the stewards for the two mechanics.
Fine and two stop GPs
The two team members were sanctioned by the commissioners. Both will have to pay one fine of 2 thousand euros and will not be able to take part in the Australian GP (October 17) e Malaysia (October 23). For the next races in Japan and Thailand, in fact, there would be no conditions to replace them due to the restrictions related to travel and immigration permits. Australia and Malaysia have been identified as the first two possible races to apply the sanction.CopyAMP code.
