The serious misconduct by Romano Fenati towards Stefano Manzi during the Moto2 race during the Grand Prix of San Marino and the Riviera di Rimini which took place at the Marco Simoncelli Circuit of Misano Adriatico will have repercussions for the future, beyond the black flag shown to Fenati , and the two-race ban imposed by Race Direction. MV Agusta will be represented by Fenati in 2019, the year which will see the return of the Varese factory to the highest level of motorcycle racing, and the Moto2 World Championship. The agreement between MV Agusta Racing Reparto Racing Team and Romano Fenati has been terminated.
Giovanni Castiglioni , President of MV Agusta, said:
“In this case, we have never seen it as dangerous as this” “A rider who can act like this can never represent the values of our company, and our brand. the rider with which MV Agusta makes its return to the world championship. “
Giovanni Cuzari , Team Owner:
“After the disgraceful episode between Romano Fenati and Stefano Manzi, it is impossible for the team to maintain its planned collaboration with the rider from Ascoli for the 2019 season. For this reason, though we are bitterly regret it, we are forced to cancel our project with Fenati.Our sport is already extremely dangerous, and any act which increases the risk involved for the riders is intolerable. one of our future riders. “
