The Misano 2 Grand Prix ended with legal consequences. A complaint was made and the control unit of Masia’s Honda was confiscated. The competing teams accused them of irregularites.
We’re writing about it now, after the necessary inspections, because it was just a rumor at first, and not yet confirmed by any FIM press release. But now we’re certain.
The Leopard team, three world championships with Danny Kent (2015), Joan Mir (2017), and our Dalla Porta (2019), is among the most professional in the category, has teams in both the CEV and the CIV, and works with well-known technician Christian Lundberg.
From the information we have, the Italian-Luxemburghese team is absolutely unperturbed about its legal control unit and accepted the inspection without any concern.
Instead, what worries us is the absolute lack of transparency of the panel of commissioners who obviously are not aware of the most elementary obligations, including that of communicating any situation of this type to the outside world. And the reason is easy to figure out.
Not making these types of things known could lead to unclear situations. Something the FIM should definitely avoid.
We are now no longer waiting for the press release related to the complaint – it’s too late for that – but at least for the result of the inspection to be made public.
