Video: the crash that cost Marc Marque a minute

Just after the checkered flag was waved for Friday's free practice at Phillip Island, Marc Marquez ran into the back of fellow Moto2 rider Ratthapark Wilairot at high speed. The FIM found Marquez's riding to be of, "an irresponsible manner, causing danger to Wilairot which is an infringement of Article 1.21.2 of the 2011 FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Regulations." As a result, the Spaniard had a full minute added to his qualifying time, meaning he started the race in 38th and last position. Didn't seem to affect his performance much though.

Thanks for the tip, Prich.
