Dominique Aegerter have been stripped of his victory in the Misano Moto2 round due to use of 'an oil outside the FIM Moto2 specifications'.

The Swiss star has thus been removed from the official results for the entire event, meaning Suter also lose their only victory of the season so far.

With Aegerter erased, countryman Thomas Luthi inherits victory ahead of Hafizh Syahrin, with Francesco Bagnaia being bumped up to the podium.

It also means that Luthi's title deficit to Franco Morbidelli is cut from 24 to 19 points, after today's Motegi race.

Morbidelli did not finish at Misano and thus gains nothing from Aegerter's DSQ, which had been his first win since 2014.

Earlier this year, Mattia Pasini lost his Catalunya podium for exactly the same reason.
