Pol Espargaro receives three-place grid penalty

The Repsol Honda rider has been sanctioned by the stewards after rejoining in an unsafe manner during FP1 at the Malaysian Grand Prix

Following an FP1 incident, Pol Espargaro has been handed a three-place grid penalty on Sunday at the Malaysian Grand Prix after he was deemed to have rejoined the track unsafely. The Repsol Honda rider suffered the wrath of the MotoGP™ Stewards as they judged him to cause danger to another rider, and as a result, has been sanctioned. 

Contravening Article 1.21.2 of the FIM World Championship Grand Prix regulations, the action is considered irresponsible riding and will see the Spaniard start three places further back from his qualifying position.
