MotoGP: Sanction for Bagnaia: three grid positions in Mugello GP

At the end of FP2 free practice at the Mugello circuit, Pecco Bagnaia was sanctioned by receiving a penalty of three positions on the starting grid in the Mugello GP. A sanction imposed for getting in the way of another rider's trajectory by riding too slowly. According to FIM rules, the penalty will only be applied at the Grand Prix and will not be applied in Saturday's Sprint instead. The sanction clearly refers to the incident that occurred on the track between Pecco Bagnaia and Alex Marquez, with the latter also visibly complaining on the track.

To the accusations Bagnaia retorted:
"I was off line under braking, but he was being a showman as usual. I think it's ridiculous to be called in Race Direction for what happened, but I will hear what they have to say and explain my version. To make a show when certain things happen helps to make the other riders give penalties, he played it the best way he could. He is like that, he is Alex Marquez."
