The team has just published the following statement: “Here we are. Now we can communicate that the Marinelli Snipers Team shall terminate the contract with the rider Romano Fenati, from now on, for his unsporting, dangerous and damaging conduct for the image of all.

“With extreme regret, we have to note that his irresponsible act endangered the life of another rider and can’t be apologised for in any way. The rider, from this moment, will not participate in any more races with the Marinelli Snipers team.

“The team, Marinelli Cucine, Rivacold and all the other sponsors and the people that always supported him, apologised to all the World Championship fans.”

Fenati was set to join Forward Racing next season on the MV Agusta bike in the Moto2 championship, but factory boss Giovanni Castiglioni has now gone public, ruling out the chance of that ride saying: “This has been the worse and saddest thing I ever seen in a bike race. True sportsmen would never act this way.

“Regarding his contract for a future position as rider of MV Agusta Moto 2, I will oppose myself in every way to stop it. It won’t happen, he doesn’t represent our company’s true values.”
