[kropotkin thinks...] - Johann Zarco Handed Penalty For Crash With Franco Morbidelli

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.


Johann Zarco has been penalized for the crash with Franco Morbidelli, which happened during last Sunday's MotoGP race at the Red Bull Ring. The two riders faced the FIM Stewards on Thursday, the Stewards hearing their stories separately. After reviewing the evidence and listening to the riders, the Stewards decided to punish Zarco for irresponsible riding.

The Frenchman will have to start the next race from pit lane. But the penalty does not apply solely to the Styrian Grand Prix, to be held this Sunday. Rather, Zarco is to serve the penalty at the next race where he takes the start. If he is ruled unfit to ride at Spielberg this weekend, then the penalty will be held over until Misano.

Below is the official FIM press release:

FIM MotoGP™ Stewards Notification of Sanction: Johann Zarco
