Disgraced Moto2 rider Romano Fenati deservedly lost his spot on the Marinelli Snipers team after he attempted one of the more dangerous stunts we’ll see in competitive racing.
As Fenati rode beside competitor Stefano Manzi at the San Marino GP, the 22-year-old reached out and grabbed Manzi’s brake at 140 mph.
Luckily, Manzi didn’t fall off his bike as Fenati’s antics were completely uncalled for. Fenati was shown the black flag and disqualified from the race for attempting to harm an opponent.
While he was banned for two races and fired from his team, Fenati thought the penalty was unfair. Still, he added that he has no plans to race again.
“That world is closed to me, I’ll not race anymore,” he said in an interview he granted to La Repubblica.”It isn’t my world. There is too much injustice. I was wrong, that is true, but nobody cares about my pain.”I wasn’t a real man, I was unable to control my anger but Manzi could have killed me too.”
