At Misano, Romano Fenati (Marinelli Rivacold Snipers) was shown the Black Flag and disqualified from the Moto2™ race for irresponsible riding after an incident between the Italian and compatriot Stefano Manzi (Forward Racing Team). The FIM MotoGP™ Stewards decided to suspend Fenati from the next two Grands Prix following the offence, deemed serious. The penalty applies to the rider only, not the team - leaving the door open for a replacement to race.
Manzi also recieved a penalty of six grid positions at his next race, and also for irresponsible riding, but that was for a different and earlier incident between the two at Turn 4.
After the high-profile incident and Fenati's Black Flag, the premier class podium finishers were also asked for their thoughts on it in the MotoGP™ Press Conference – and Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) pulled no punches…
