But why was Quartararo handed the time penalty? MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™ riders receive a track limits warning when they go onto the virtual gravel traps – the green areas – three times. A warning – should – come up on their dashboards. Then, if the riders exceed track limits a further two times, taking their tally up to five, a long-lap penalty his handed to them. That’s what happened to Quartararo at the Emilia Romagna GP, but according to the Frenchman, he didn’t receive the warnings that everyone else was seeing on TV.
