Italian Moto2 rider Romano Fenati was suspended by his country’s motorcycling federation (FMI) and had his license revoked after he shocked the sport by grabbing a rival’s brake lever while racing at speed in a race on Sunday.

Fanti grabbing a rival’s brake lever while racing at speed

The 22-year-old’s contract with the Marinelli Snipers team had already been terminated following the astonishing incident during the San Marino Grand Prix.
“Romano Fenati… is suspended from all sporting activity with consequent withdrawal of his racing license,” said the FMI’s federal tribunal in a statement on Tuesday. It did not give any dates for the length of the suspension.
Fenati has also been summoned to appear before an FMI disciplinary hearing on Friday.
The Italian was disqualified on the spot and barred from the next two races after he leaned across and grabbed the brake of Stefano Manzi in a the 200kph incident. Moto2 is a feeder series one rung below the main MotoGP class.
Fenati apologized for the incident on Monday, describing it as a “disgraceful gesture.”
On Tuesday, he told Italian media that he would finish his studies.
“Now, I’m going back to school,” he said. “With a cool head, I say that I will not race anymore, but I do not really know how I would see myself in five years.
“At the moment, I just want to put all this behind me.”
