Looks like Romano Fenati is going to return to the Snipers Moto3 Team next year.

Well, if the team is willing to sign him back, obviously there are people out there who aren't worried about associating with his image.

I would imagine there is some big money following him to allow his return. Somebody must believe in his talent and his ability to change his emotional state.

Perhaps he now understands what he threw away....?

Right....? But money talks when trying to field a team at that level. We can only hope that he will be scrutinized from the time he leaves for a race until he returns home.

Give the man a raise. Well done, bluegixxer600, keep being you.
I looked twice at the link URL to make sure it wasn't motogpnews.com. As the French would say, "That's nuts."

Do any of you think he will "hold back a little" given extra scrutiny that will be bestowed on him? Think it might affect his racing performance? Will he have to ride extra cleanly, at least early in the year?

Less seriously:

He does have some opportunity for some self depreciating hi jinks..say playfully pretending to grab another rider's brake lever while walking the pits, in the spirit of Marquez waving the flag at Redding (shoulder dislocation issue). Getting photographed with a "sponsored by Ferodo" T-shirt. I doubt any of that will happen, but one can hope.

I'm going with he has learned his lesson and is thankful and humble for the 3rd chance...hoping.

I would like to think he has finally learned from the experience and will not have another incident. He is a fiery guy, though, and tends to act in the heat of the moment without thinking it through. Which could be his eventual downfall. we will see. You know everyone will be watching. You know there are guys out there that will test him, knowing that he is on double not-so-secret probation!
