I am very disappointed that Dorna is allowing Fenati to race again. There are other things he could do with his life. The risk that he has not learnde his lesson is not woth the safety of the other riders. There are other things that he can do with his life.

Based on his team, experience, pace, and pass successes in the class, as well as the cream of the 2018 Moto3 crop moving up to Moto2, Fenati is certainly one of the favorites to be 2019 Moto3 World Champion.  That could be a bit awkward if it happens.

there’s a bigger gesture in life. Redemption. Let’s hope the better side of human nature enables him to redeem himself. He’ll only get this chance.
