Long lap penalty in Assen race

For Franco Morbidelli there are more and more difficulties, and in the Dutch Grand Prix the Yamaha rider will also have to serve a long lap penalty in the race.

Morbidelli was penalized for obstructing Marco Bezzecchi’s fast lap in Turn 1 and Enea Bastianini’s in Turn 13. Franco was penalized for creating safety problems as he was going too slow. He had already received a verbal warning in the German GP.

This is his comment: “I went off the track at turn 11 and I saw Enea coming very fast. I’m sorry, the penalty fits. It wasn’t bad this morning, when there is little grip I do well. It doesn’t go with the soft, I can’t handle it. The worst for us seemed to be the wet. I’ll have to forget about the long lap, last race Miller got on the podium. It’s tough, but it can be done.”
