Or the other option is lets hope Manzi hands it to him from now on, much as Marquez has handed it to rossi since Sepang 2015.

That was obvious to some of us some time ago.

To catch you up ...... rossi ...... the reason for Yamahas problems ..... is going to be taking a managerial role. This will be one of the hardest things, as we will have to watch a once great brand be imploded by the worlds most overrated egotistical wankers.

Fenati's behaviour today was the most egregious example of endangering another rider I have seen in 25 years of watching world level racing. A two race ban is frankly, a joke.

There seems to be an argument that Manzi's race craft leading up to today's incident (not limited to today's events) was a compelling factor in his total loss of control (cue Jorge Lorenzo) but the fact of the matter is this was an example of a rider totally out of control of his emotions with potentially disastrous consequences, with a temperament ill suited to such a dangerous sport, and willing to do anything in order to exact his completely unjustified revenge.

The dark irony of the matter is that a young rider in the same class tragically lost his life at this very track only a few short years ago. And at a track renamed in the memory of another rising star who lost his life riding and risking his life for our entertainment. What a truly classless and careless way to sully the memories of individuals who risked life and limb for our enjoyment and both of whom sadly paid the greatest of prices to do so.

It's my hope he isn't allowed to darken these grids again.

Nowhere near long enough.
I'd ban the twat for life for that,that was even worse than Rossi kicking Marquez off his bike.

Fenati is a fucking lunatic, there's something not right between his ears and lacks the emotional maturity to race motorbikes, kicking out at other riders, hitting the kill switch on another bike, countless arguments, fired from a team because of his attitude and now this. He should be banned for the rest of the season and sent to a fucking psychiatrist before ever being allowed to race again.


Good win for Dovi and fair play to Cal, the only guys ahead of him were the ones you expect to be ahead of him, after Marquez he's been the only other Honda rider worth a shit this season.

I didn't see this incident, but it would seem similar to something I did see live from Sofoglu in a supersport race a few years back.

I believe it was this incident?



Clearly also intentionally endangering another rider and worthy of a ban also. However Sofuoglu has had a total moment of red mist which by no way excuses him, but I'd say he was barely in control of himself, let alone his machine. But as I said a ban was without doubt in order.

However I would say that Fenati's was significantly worse, mainly because he has directly and deliberately interfered with the operation of Manzi's machine. His demeanour was also one that suggests premeditation as he pulled alongside and calmly reached for the brake lever totally in the knowledge of the potential consequences of doing so.

There is no place for either example on live racetracks at speed.

I'm just surprised it came down to the 2 teams making this decision and not the powers that be.
