MotoGP Malaysia 2012: Alex de Angelis wins in the rain, Marc Márquez will have to wait

Very difficult conditions that have been experienced in the Moto2 race of the Malaysian Grand Prix. After suffering a delay at the start due to the rain while better conditions were expected, the race could be contested although again the rain worsened and ended after raising the red flag four laps from the end with Alex de Angelis (NGM Mobile Forward Racing) as the winner. Marc Márquez (Team Catalunya Caixa Repsol) crashed when he was seventh.

As we said, departure had to be delayed because it was raining with great intensity. Already on the grid with the sky more or less calm, the race started and in the first corner he was in the lead Takaaki nakagami (Italtrans Racing Team). But as fast as it got first he went to the ground leaving the lead to Bradley Smith (Tech 3 Racing).

The happiness of the Englishman lasted a long time because a scare led him to go backwards. Julito Simon (Blusens Avintia) took over with Alex de Angelis, Gino Rea (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2) who had started on the 22nd, Anthony West (QMMF Racing Team), Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing Team), Thomas Luthi (Interwetten-Paddock) and Marc Márquez. Pol Espargaró (Tuenti Movil HP 40) a little further back was located around twelfth position.

Anthony West

Julito Simón's joy lasted two laps because Alex de Angelis took the lead while the Spaniard was progressively losing positions. Behind, the local Hafizh the fish Syahrin (Petronas Raceline Malaysia), who had started the twenty-seventh was already fifth and set fastest lap after fastest lap.

Eleven laps to go Hafizh Syahrin took the lead and the madness uncovered in the stands. Alex de Angelis was still very strong alongside Gino Rea and Anthony West. The four of them rolled together and fought hard for first position for several laps.

Marc Márquez was still seventh and Pol Espargaró twelfth but when braking, Marc's address was closed and he ruined all the possibilities of winning the title that until that moment he had caressed with his hands. Pol Espargaró with finishing ahead of the twelfth position held one more race the alirón of Márquez.

Gino Rea

Thomas luthi, who regained distance with the first, went to the ground and made Pol Espargaró have a little more margin. And then it would start to rain much harder again, with Alex de Angelis, Anthony West and Gino Rea fighting for the first position.

Rea was in the lead but on that lap, 17 and three to go, the red flag was raised and the result that was taken into account was that of lap 15, four to go and on that Alex de Angelis was the one who had passed in the lead taking the victory followed by Anthony West and Gino Rea. The best Spanish, Julito Simón, fifth while Tito Rabat (Tuenti Movil HP 40) was tenth.
