Please correct me, I haven't seen where FIM has yet issued any sanction or officially ruled on the incident? Only notice that he's been called to FIM HQ for 'discussion' (link to RRW article in post 10 above).

Yes, Dorna, FMI (Italy), his Team, his future team, have all spoken / 'ruled' on their respective behalves, but AFAIK FIM's ruling is still 'pending'?

No illusions about anything 'gentlemanly' about pro racing any more than any other pro sport. It's a high-dollar enterprise for all involved .... riders, owners, venues, sanctioning bodies, media, sponsors, etc, etc .... all exemplars of the most competitive Type-A personalities and organizations, all motivated by all sorts of incentives other than 'gentlemanliness'.

That's not a good sign.
I think that might be the smell of roasting goose on the breeze...

Re: Road Rage at San Marino GP

Give him another chance next year if he can get a bike. He won't act up again. Start him at the back of the grid for first half of season. Anyone can change. Send him to anger management

Not looking good for next year, as he's now had his racing license revoked.

Dorna/MotoGP only suspended him for two races.
Understood, and though complicated in it's intermingling, FIM is distinct from Dorna.

Mostly moot given Fenati's loss of a ride/sponsorship, but in this case Dorna suspended Fenati's ability to participate in it's MotoGP series for two races (Spain/Aragon on 9/23and Thailand/Chang on 10/7).

FIM, acting on it's own behalf, on 9/21 finally determined to withdraw his FIM License (required for MotoGP competition) for the remainder of 2019. That covers the period of six MotoGP races.

And yes, he'll be able to apply for his FIM License in 2019. So, on paper at least, he's got another chance to pursue his career. Time will tell if he's able to get another MotoGP ride (he does have the obvious skills to be competitive in the series) and if so whether he has adjusted his behavior on the track.

Then there's the 'criminal investigation' supposedly by an Italian court. That I can only hope goes no where - IMHO that'd be a terrible precedent for all sports.
