El Diablo will have to serve a ‘long lap penalty’ at Silverstone

In addition to affecting the outcome of the Dutch Grand Prix, the incident involving Fabio Quartararo and Aleix Espargaró will also have consequences for the course of the next GP, the British Grand Prix at Silverstone: Fabio Quartararo has received a ‘long lap penalty’ because he is deemed responsible for the contact: this means that El Diablo will have to go through a special ‘appendage’ of the circuit for one lap, losing potentially precious seconds for the race.

The Race Direction’s decision to penalize him for the next GP is not only excessive, given that Fabio did not drag anyone to the ground and that Aleix finished the race, but it is also inconsistent with the race incidents we have seen in previous GPs, which have gone unpunished.”

“We will use the break in the calendar to put this Gp behind us,” Meregalli then closed. “We will be ready to fight at Silverstone in a month’s time.
