Romano Fenati looks set to make a shock comeback to Grand Prix racing in 2019 with the Marinelli Snipers Moto3 team.

Fenati was sacked from the Snipers team earlier this year after he grabbed Stefano Manzi’s brakes whilst battling on track during the Moto2 race at Misano. His racing license was also taken off him for the remainder of the 2018 season, and the 22-year-old’s 2019 contract with the Forward Racing MV Agusta team was terminated.

The seriousness of his actions meant that the Italian faced potential Italian criminal court proceedings for ‘private violence’. He had also announced that he would retire from racing following the incident.

Despite this, reports are now suggesting that Fenati will return to his former team – albeit in the Moto3 class. It is believed that he will line-up alongside Tony Arbolino for the team.

Fenati has enjoyed success in Moto3 before, having raced in the class between 2012 and 2017. During that time he picked up a total of 10 victories and a further 13 podiums.

According to the official MotoGP website, an official announcement to confirm Fenati’s return is expected in the “near future.”
