Fenati fired for the third time

The SpeedUp had put him on notice and, after another disappointment in Jerez, he took him out of the World Championship. Romano Fenati says goodbye to Moto2 again after a very difficult start to the season. The Italian is left out of the competition, without a motorcycle and with Alonso López filling his place in the intermediate category team. After days of rumours, the dismissal of the Italian is already a reality, as confirmed by the team in a brief statement: “Team Speed ​​Up announces the termination of the contract with the pilot Romano Fenati”.

At 26 years old, Fenati says goodbye to Moto2 for the second time. The first time took place in 2018, when the one from Ascoli Piceno was a member of the Snipers ranks. On that occasion, Romano was the protagonist of a very controversial action in the middle of the Misano race, when he touched Stefani Manzi’s brake on the straight, at great speed. After endangering the life of a colleague, he was excluded and sanctioned, as well as fired by his team. Back then it was not the first time he had been fired: in 2016, as a rider for Valentino Rossi’s Sky Racing in Moto3, a fight with Uccio Salucci, left him out of the competition. Neither

However, in 2019, Fenati tried his luck again in Moto3. Life gave him another opportunity that, after three seasons, three victories and three more podiums, took him back to the intermediate category with a Boscoscuro. But the dream only lasted six races. Before the appointment in Portugal, the Italian had already received an ultimatum from the SpeedUp for his results and, after two more disappointments and retirement in Jerez, the decision is immediate and irrevocable. So far this season, an eleventh place in Portimao is his best result. Meanwhile, his teammate Fermín Aldeguer never ceases to amaze: the Spaniard took pole in Argentina and, although he was able to win, a collision with Vietti did not allow him to finish the race.
