Watch: Moto2 rider grabs rival’s brake lever

Italian rider Romano Fenati, who was banned for pulling a rival’s brake lever while travelling at 135mph during a race, is set to return next season.

Fenati grabbed the brake lever of compatriot Stefano Manzi, who briefly lost his balance before regaining control, during the San Marino Moto2.

The 22-year-old will return to his former team, the Marinelli Snipers, who had sacked him after the incident.

Fenati will compete in the Moto3 World Championship, a demotion from Moto2.
