Quartararo penalised for Espargaro clash

Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™) has been slapped with a Long Lap penalty as punishment for his clash with MotoGP™ title rival Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) in the Motul TT Assen. Espargaro kept himself upright but had to take to the gravel and resumed all the way back in 15th position, as Quartararo remounted in 24th spot. The FIM MotoGP™ Stewards panel deemed Quartararo was overly ambitious in attempting to overtake Espargaro. Quartararo has been given a Long Lap penalty to be served in the MotoGP™ race at the Monster Energy British Grand Prix. “I didn’t see the sense of going out again” – Quartararo 26/06/2022.
