Pressure on tires ‘hatched’ French driver.
Miguel Oliveira was third and not fourth in the Moto2 Japan Grand Prix. Initially, the Portuguese rider was off the podium but the disqualification of the winner of the race, Fabio Quartararo, earned Oliveira the climb in the final table.
It was Quartararo himself who first announced what had happened and revealed the reason for the disqualification.
“The tire pressure was 0.02 lower, I’m very happy for the weekend, which does not kill us to become stronger,” he wrote on social networks.
