Simoncelli Given Warning Over Mugello Idiocy
Okay – well in a minor victory for common sense, the FIM has handed Simoncelli a warning over his riding today.
Whether it’ll make the slightest bit of difference to someone so unfeasibly ignorant we will have to wait and see, but it’s a start…
Here is the wording in full:
“On Sunday 31st May, during the 250cc race, rider Marco Simoncelli (ITA) rode in an irresponsible manner, causing danger to rider Alvaro Bautista (SPA), which is an infringement to the Art. 1.21.2 of the 2009 FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Regulations. The Race Direction has decided to penalize rider Marco Simoncelli with a warning as to his future conduct, which means any further incident of the same nature this year may result in a suspension and to impose him a fine of USD 5,000.
No appeal has been lodged.
The decision of the Race Direction is final.”
