Last lap crash denies Vazquez decent result at Sepang
After starting from fourth on the grid, Efren Vazquez had a good battle for sixth in the Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang this Sunday, but unfortunately crashed out in the final lap and was only able to bring home the bike in 11th position in the end, salvaging five points from what could have been another decent top ten result.
Efren Vazquez: “I chose a hard front tyre for the race and that caused me some troubles.”
Meanwhile the 125cc World Championship title will unexpectedly go down to the season finale, which will be held 6th of November in Valencia, Spain. Nicolas Terol and Johann Zarco will then fight for the last 125cc championship title in history.
Terol had an opportunity to clinch the championship in Malaysia if he only would have crossed the finish line before Zarco. In the last lap it already looked like Terol was going to do that when he was third, after leading for much of the race, and Zarco was fourth. However, the Spaniard made a mistake and let Zarco through. Zarco crossed the finish line third behind Maveric Vinales and Sandro Cortese. Terol who finished fifth now leads the championship by 20 points over Zarco.
