Niklas Garlic, the Finnish driver of the team TT Motion Events Racing, who competes in the Moto3 category with a KTM, has been sanctioned for assaulting a track commissioner at the Spanish GP held at the Jerez Circuit this past weekend. The decision of the race direction dictates a sanction by which Niklas Ajo will be disqualified from the next Grand Prix to be held in Portugal. Specifically in the Estoril Circuit on May 4, 5 and 6. Despite a subsequent appeal, the career direction has been ratified and maintains that its resolution on this issue is final.
Niklas Ajo falls at the Spanish GP in Jerez due to the intense humidity on the track during the three days of competition. He then checks his motorcycle and, seeing that he can join the race again, gave a shove to a track commissioner which, under orders from the race management, prevented the KTM rider from entering. Niklas Ajo deeply regrets what happened as he explains on his personal Facebook page. He says that at that time he was full of Adrenaline and that this GP was also abnormal due to the weather conditions in which it took place. Obviously, any violent or aggressive action is punishable but:The penalty is excessive?, ¿All pilots are measured by the same standard? We are going to see a video that will refresh our memories below.
This you see above happened in the 2011 French GP. Casey stoner prey to the nerves, punched Randy de Puniet for disturbing him in one of his laps around the circuit. The Repsol Honda rider was fined 5,000 euros by the race management. I reiterate that all violent action must be punishable but personally I am clear that not everyone is measured the same. I think that any action of this type, and as we say in our country, must end with the pilot involved in “the fridge“.
