The result got continuously, starting with the 6th position in Free Practice 1, then 5th position in Free Practice 2, then he qualified 3rd on the grid and this race's result could have been his first win in the Moto2 class, but unfortunately the 24 year ols Swiss lost the front of his bike and crashed. He stayed uninjured, but could not finish the race. Luthi is leaving the Motorcycle Grand Prix of Malaysia without any points, but he will be back to attack in Australia again.

Tom Luthi, DNF:
"The race itself went really well. Until this crash I was able to fight in the leading group and was leading the race at some points. The whole weekend was successful and I am confident that we can be back in front in Australia."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
"Well this is racing, crashes happen sometimes. Tom rode a great race and the crash was not predictable. In general this weekend was very successful and I am looking forward to Phillip Island now, where I hope we will be fighting at the top again."
