Misano Adriatico, Italy - Moto2 rider Romano Fenati has been banned for two races for grabbing Italian rival Stefano Manzi's brake lever during the San Marino motorcycle Grand Prix at Misano on Sunday.
This followed Manzi's attempt to pass Fenati a few laps earlier. The pair made contact as Manzi overtook on the inside, with both riders running off the track, losing several positions and dropping out of the points. Fenati then lean over and squeezed Manzi's brake lever, causing him lose his balance briefly before regaining control of his Suter.
Fenati - a Moto2 rookie this year on a privately-entered Kalex machine - was black-flagged and disqualified after 23 laps for "irresponsible riding".
