In the World Championship the discussions on what happened during the last race of the race have not subsided Moto3, with the multiple accident triggered by Deniz Oncu, which also involved Andrea Migno, Jeremy Alcoba and Pedro Acosta. The frightening carom miraculously ended with all the riders who came out unscathed, but the chorus that asked the Race Direction to have a hard fist against a contact – yet another in the minimum displacement – became loud and noisy. only by a real stroke of luck did not turn into tragedy. And so the Commissioners decided to sanction with two Deniz Oncu suspension races, guilty of having been the trigger of the incident at COTA.
The manager of the Turk, Kenan Sofuoglu, five times world champion in the Supersport category, but he doesn’t fit in and has released fiery words to the Germans of Speedweek, to defend his driver and including in his reasoning also Bahattin Sofuoglu, penalized by 3 ″ in the Supersport 300 for irresponsible driving: “My drivers train very intensely, they fight every lap. And you try to do it without touching the opponent. Even in F1, which is the pinnacle of motorsport, we see Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen driving very aggressively. To be successful, you have to be aggressive, is part of our sport. Today the pilots complain too much. The decision against Deniz is not right, because we see much more dangerous maneuvers than his. The others complain about my drivers because they are very strong and so they look for reasons to complain about them. We are sorry for what happened to Dean Vinales, but Deniz and Bahattin were taken as examples of punishment. But that’s not fair, today the Moto3 and Supersport 300 races go like this, all try to use the wake of those who precede them“, Said the Turk.
