MotoGP World Championship leader Marc Marquez claims to have been left ‘surprised’ that Race Direction is looking further into the incident between himself and from Sunday’s Aragón Grand Prix, but the 20-year-old is not expecting to be penalised.

When running behind Pedrosa on the sixth lap of the race at MotorLand Aragón, Marquez out-braked himself and made passing contact with the Repsol Honda Team bike in front of him, thus slicing through a sensor cable on the back of Pedrosa’s machine which left the latter without traction control and therefore crashing out of the race just moments later.

Marc Marquez’s rivals have a mountain to climb at the Shell Advance Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix at Sepang this weekend to chase down the Repsol Honda Team rider’s 39-point lead in the ™ World Championship with only four races to go.

Yamaha Factory Racing’s is Marquez’s closest challenger and will be giving his all to try and haul back points on the Honda rookie, who last time out in Aragón made the headlines for not only his latest win. His contact with teammate Dani Pedrosa, which led to the rear wheel sensor of the latter failing – resulting in a big highside – will be discussed by Race Direction this Thursday.
