>>Moto GPnews wnfall’ De Angelis escapes penalty for mid-race collision SAN Marino racer Alex de Angelis escaped with only a verbal warning after a mid- race misjudgement saw him cannon into the side of fellow Honda rider Dani Pedrosa, almost knocking the factory rider off. The pair was engaged in battle with Chris Vermeulen, and the Suzuki rider had just nipped ahead of Pedrosa. As the Spaniard ran wide on the corner exit de Angelis followed him through … only for his trajectory to carry him into the left side of his rival on the exit. Pedrosa, whose left knee is recovering from injury, was knocked out of the seat, but stayed on board by some miracle – dropping back out of contention. De Angelis went on to outpace Vermeulen for a strong sixth. Directly after the race, however, he was summoned to Race Control for the incident to be investigated. “I was called up to put forward my version of the collision with Dani, but there was no complaint against me so it wasn’t a big deal,” he said in an official statement. Team manager Fausto Gresini added: “I’m not sure how it happened, but I think it was clear that Alex didn’t do it intentionally.” 15
