Tom Luthi broke his foot yesterday after a huge high side incident and unfortunately is not able to race in the 2017 Malaysian Grand Prix. As a result, this gives Franco Morbidelli the World Title in Moto2 and leaves Franco to race with no pressure whatsoever. The last three races for Tom have been up and down and the end result was a disaster for Luthi fans. Everyone wanted to see the battle royal between the two riders as only 29 points kept them apart. We must say that winning a World Championship like this is not ideal although in a sport of such high competition, moments like this can arise. A similar incident arose with Valentino Rossi who fell victim to a training accident and ended up missing out on the 2017 title bid. 

This is racing.
