Misano was a good race.

Dovi eventually cleared off and left Jorge and Marquez to have a race long duel, then Jorge fell off on the penultimate lap, leaving second place to Marquez with a lonely third going to Crutchlow and fourth to Rins on the Suzuki.

Pity Miller fell off early in the race just after being shuffled back to fourth.

Enjoyable race, but not as much action of some of the earlier races.

That's putting it mildly.

The account and video of someone "adjusting" his competitor's brake made AutoWeek's report over here.

The TV coverage did get a bit boring after the start but fair play to Dovi who was the man on the day, obviously it was good to see Cal finish on the podium after being "given" the place, but that's racing.

What was a more exciting race was Troy Corser riding the wheels off of an 80 year old solid framed BMW to beat all the more "modern" stuff at Goodwood !!!!

So Fenati's been given a two race ban for grabbing his rivals brake lever. In the past we've seen red mist moments with riders giving the elbow or kicking out which deserve sanction. But to grab a rival's brake lever down the straight? Beyond stupid

Anyway well done Dovi on another win and well done Cal for coming third, but Marquez still consistent as ever

Yes, I was lucky and caught it live. Was a very impressive ride, and his slowing down lap pretty cool as well- standing on the pegs most of the way round waving....

Regarding the Moto2 two race ban for grabbing another riders brake lever- that in my book is ridiculously lenient. Suggested on the news this morning that the guilty rider has previous form as well?

Well he already was dropped by VR46 for his behaviour in Moto3. Should have acted as a warning for him, but obviously not

Fenati is guility, he makes our people angry. He definitely cannot continue his racing career.

He was sacked from VR46 for whacking a team member as I remember and has numerous incidents in the past.

In Italy a rider was actually pursued through court for doing this.

He definitely cannot continue his racing career. How can you imagine a team will employ such racer with this strange and irresponsible act like this?

Good for MV Agusta! Their statement should carry on the end Fenati's career

I can't see him coming back now. Especially not at any top level bike series. He only has himself to blame for this

I remember this happening to Sete Gibernau on the race up to the first corner back in 2006 when he ran into the back of another bike ! At least this time it didn't have the rider over the top thankfully !!!! And yes he should be thrown out seeing that he has a fair bit of previous aggro !
