You can’t have missed the uproar against Romano Fenati following his irresponsible down-right dangerous riding at the weekend when he grabbed Stefano Manzi’s front brake during the Moto 2 race.
That cost him a two-race ban but the teams have taken it a bit further. The Marinelli Rivacold Snipers have fire him and although he did have a deal with MV Agusta for a ride in Moto2 in 2019 that seems dead in the water now too.
MV boss Giovanni Castiglioni tweeted: “it will not happen, he does not represent our company’s true values.’
Many were arguing that Fenati’s actions deserved a lifetime ban, and we wouldn’t disagree with that. Given his past and these latest incidents his career may well be over anyway as few if any teams are going to want to taint themselves with his reputation when there is so much other great talent (without attitude) available these days.
So its bye-bye Romano. Not before time too!
