FIM MotoGP Stewards Panel
NOTIFICATION OF SANCTION
To: Franco MORDIDELLI, No. 21 of the MotoGP Class
Dear Sir,
According to Article 3.5.5 of the FIM World Championship Grand Prix Regulations and the FIM Disciplinary
and Arbitration Code, we confirm our decision.
Motive
On 10 August 2018 at 10:40 during the MotoGP FP1 of the EYETIME MOTORRAD GRAND PRIX VON
ÖSTERREICH, at Turn 2 you were found to be riding in an irresponsible manner, being slow on the racing
line disturbing another rider.
This contravenes Article 1.21.2 of the FIM World Championship Grand Prix Regulations “Riders must ride in
a responsible manner which does not cause danger to other competitors or participants, either on the track
or in the pit lane. It is therefore an infringement of the FIM World Championship Grand Prix Regulations.
Sanction
For the above reasons, being the second offense and taking into account the degree of seriousness of the
offence, the MotoGP Stewards Panel has imposed on you a Grid Penalty of 3 positions for the EYETIME
MOTORRAD GRAND PRIX VON ÖSTERREICH according to Article 3.2.1 of the FIM World Championship
Grand Prix Disciplinary and Arbitration Code.
Right of Appeal
According to Article 3.4.2, this decision is final.
Sincerely,
FIM MotoGP Stewards Panel
