Moto2: Marquez to miss Valencia - Official

"Márquez... will not take part in today's practice nor in tomorrow's race, so the Moto2 title will be for Germany's Stefan Bradl"
After missing day one of the Valencia Moto2 finale, but still hoping for a 'miracle', Repsol has officially confirmed that Marc Marquez will not ride this weekend and that Stefan Bradl is therefore the 2011 world champion.

The statement read:

"Marc Márquez tried to wait until the last moment to take advantage of any chance to be able to fight tomorrow for the Moto2 title, but he was not able to recover in time from his sight problems due to the crash he suffered on Friday morning in the Malaysian GP.

"Márquez, who waited until the last moment to see if he recovered from his sight problems, will not take part in today's practice nor in tomorrow's race, so the Moto2 title will be for Germany's Stefan Bradl, with whom he has fought a hard battle in the second half of the 2011 season.

"Marc takes the runner-up position of the Championship in his debut year in the intermediate category of the Moto2 World Championship, after achieving a brilliant track record in his first year: 7 victories, 11 podiums, 7 pole positions, 10 starts from the first row and 2 fastest lap in race."

Marquez will remain in Moto2 next year.

Didn't deserve it after what he did in Australia, should have been banned. Got off really lightly then his team had the nerve to protest. No class. Riders have been killed in the past in similar incidents.

Not the way anybody wanted it settled, but Bradl is a worthy champ. Consistently quick in all conditions, made few mistakes over the season, and maybe didn't have quite the resources that Marc had available to him either. He did a great job, and it's just a pity he can't make the step up to MotoGP for next year.
