Moto2 Racer Grabs Another Guy's Brake Mid-Race At 135MPH

When Stefano Manzi attempted to pass him during a hairpin turn at a race in Misano, Italy, rising star Roman Fenati got a little heated. And alright, before everyone gets all high & mighty – Fenati was just attempting to scare him a little bit and I’m sure he’s never done anything like that befo….ohh.

Ok so he kicked someone on the track a few years back, too… but these guys are known for living on the edge. Who among them hasn’t tried to slam someone else’s brakes at 135MPH? I think this is something his sponsors & the league will understand.

From MotoGP:

“Here we are. Now we can communicate that the Marinelli Snipers Team shall terminate the contract with the rider Romano Fenati, from now on, for his unsporting, dangerous and damaging conduct for the image of all. With extreme regret, we have to note that his irresponsible act endangered the life of another rider and can’t be apologised for in any way. The rider, from this moment, will not participate in any more races with the Marinelli Snipers team. The team, Marinelli Cucine, Rivacold and all the other sponsors and the people that always supported him, apologised to all the World Championship fans.”

Ah. Very hard to justify it at this point, but if you read his statement you can really understand where he’s coming from.
