Alex de Angelis claimed his first Moto2 victory of 2012 while champion-elect Marc Marquez fell late on and missed out on sealing the title in a crazy, rain-shortened Malaysian Grand Prix. The Spaniard’s exit means the title remains undecided, although with main rival Pol Espargaro finishing down in 11th Marquez remains a heavy favourite. The downpour that had earlier delayed the start of the race had an even more marked effect once it started.

February 8th, 2012
MotoGP safety advisor Loris Capirossi believes Bridgestone’s 2012 tyres have addressed the issues that concerned riders in ’11.

October 24th, 2011
MotoGP riders’ safety representative Franco Uncini does not feel there are any safety changes that can be made to prevent accidents such as the one that killed Marco Simoncelli in the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Japanese Grand Prix winner Dani Pedrosa says the MotoGP riders had no qualms about the Motegi race going ahead, though others still hinted at concerns over radiation. There were fears in the MotoGP paddock that it would be unsafe to race at Motegi this year following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in March, causing major damage to the Fukashima nuclear power plant. Some leading riders threatened to boycott the race, but the whole field attended in the end after various indepedent studies underlined that the radiation hazard was not an issue.
September 18th, 2011
Bridgestone says the high tyre wear experienced by many in the MotoGP field during the Aragon Grand Prix weekend was partly of a result of the Japanese firm agreeing to riders’ requests for rubber that warmed up faster.

June 5th, 2011
Jorge Lorenzo believes ’99 per cent’ of the MotoGP paddock would prefer the 2011 Japanese Grand Prix to be called off, as riders continue to express fears over the radiation risk in the country. The Motegi event was postponed from April to October following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in early March. But it is the potential for radiation from the Fukushima nuclear power station damaged in the disaster that has caused most concern among the MotoGP fraternity.

MotoGP riders have expressed their concern about committing to a rescheduled Japanese Grand Prix while the country continues to have issues with the nuclear power plant damaged in March’s earthquake and tsunami. The Japanese round was rescheduled from its intended April date to 2 October following the devastating natural disaster, but Valentino Rossi said riders were not confident about heading to Japan if the problems at the Fukushima nuclear plant continued. “[Series boss Carmelo] Ezpeleta said to us yesterday that they want to do the grand prix in Japan, because the situation is quiet and because they worked on the track because the track was a little bit damaged,” Rossi said
May 1st, 2011
Alvaro Bautista said he felt in such good shape in the Portuguese Grand Prix that he could have fought for a top-10 finish had he not gone off the road avoiding Karel Abraham’s crashed Cardion Ducati on the second lap. Suzuki rider Bautista made a remarkable return at Estoril six weeks after breaking his leg in a Qatar crash. He finished 13th and last, but said if he had not lost touch with the field by taking a detour through the gravel to miss Abraham, it could have been a much more competitive result
April 30th, 2011
