Fabio Quartararo and Sergio Garcia have both been handed penalties for using unauthorized machines to practice on track. The pair have been punished by being forced to miss the first 20 minutes of FP1 when action resumes on Friday.
The two were punished for separate incidents, Garcia for riding at Aragon in June, Quartararo for riding at Paul Ricard in the same month.
Both riders admitted that they had broken the rules, but claimed the infraction was unintentional. The relative lenience of the sentence would appear to back that up, the penalty being in line with previous incidents.
Quartararo has appealed against his penalty, however. The hearing for that is yet to be heard.
