Fenati has finished 1 second from 2nd place.
He certainly had the pace for podium on a track where he had a brilliant last year.
Had he not started dead last because he let his stupidity get the better of him, he could have saved some tires for the final lap.
At the very least, he would have stood a better chance starting from 8th on the grid.

I don't know what Ajo did to make him so angry. But Fenati could not let it go. At the end of the session, when the riders stopped to practice their starts, Fenati continued the argument. He ended it by hitting the kill switch on Ajo's bike and leaving him stranded. Hilarious!

I'm not saying I condone what Fenati did, but I can't help laughing. It was funny.
