Alvaro Bautista will be put to the back of the Sachsenring MotoGP grid as a punishment for taking Jorge Lorenzo out of the Dutch TT.
Championship leader Lorenzo's Yamaha was collected by Bautista's Gresini Honda at the first corner of the Assen race, when Bautista lost control under braking as he tried to dive down the inside of the front pack from eighth on the grid.
Both riders were forced to retire, with Lorenzo's title rival Casey Stoner then wiping out the Spaniard's pre-race 25-point championship lead by taking victory.
MotoGP race direction ruled that Bautista "rode in an irresponsible manner, causing danger to rider Jorge Lorenzo" and imposed the penalty of a back-of-the-grid start in Germany next weekend.
Gresini appealed against the decision, but the ruling was upheld by the stewards.
