Ro­mano Fe­nati’s Ca­reer-end­ing Move

Bike India - - SPORT NEWS -

Ro­mano Fe­nati, the Marinelli Snipers Team rider, got into a nasty fight with Ste­fano Manzi of For­ward Rac­ing Team. The two were fighting for po­si­tions when both ran wide and Manzi came very close to tak­ing Fe­nati out. This move prob­a­bly trig­gered ex­treme rage in Fe­nati’s mind which re­sulted in the Ital­ian rider grab­bing the front brake of Manzi’s bike at race speed. Fe­nati’s move was no­ticed by mil­lions of spec­ta­tors watch­ing the race on satel­lite tele­vi­sion and the In­ter­net. It was a shock­ing move by the 22-year-old rider who man­aged to fin­ish in the run­ners-up spot last year in Moto3 cham­pi­onship.

Af­ter this dis­ap­point­ing move, Fe­nati was shown the black flag and im­me­di­ately slapped a two-race sus­pen­sion. How­ever, this in­ci­dent was a big one for the Marinelli Snipers Team and they de­cided to part ways with Ro­mano Fe­nati, end­ing his Moto2 ca­reer mid­sea­son.

Vet­eran rid­ers like Cal Crutchlow also com­mented by say­ing that the young­ster should be banned for life from the sport. An­other jolt came for Fe­nati when his fu­ture em­ployee, MV Agusta For­ward Rac­ing Team, sacked him from their up­com­ing team for 2019. Re­cently MV Agusta, who are go­ing to make a come­back to Mo­toGP next year, had signed the young­ster but given his re­cent be­hav­iour on track, they de­cided to drop him im­me­di­ately. Fe­nati did come out apol­o­giz­ing to fans, or­ga­niz­ers, and the teams, but this mis­take seems to have put an end to his rac­ing ca­reer.
