DIS­GRACED MOTO3 STAR Ro­mano Fe­nati (Marinelli Honda) scored his come­back win at COTA, eight months af­ter he had been sacked by Rossi’s Sky VR46 team for bad be­hav­iour.

Iron­i­cally, Fe­nati won the race af­ter launch­ing a Rossi/La­guna 2008 style at­tack on pole-starter Aron Canet (Estrella Gali­cia Honda), who had been con­sid­er­ably faster than any­one dur­ing prac­tice. Fi­nally, Canet lost his cool and crashed, just as Casey Stoner did at La­guna in 2008.

The podium was mo­nop­o­lised by Honda rid­ers for the third con­sec­u­tive race, with Gresini team-mates Jorge Martin and Fabio Di Gian­nan­to­nio.
