MotoGP officials have decided not to take any action against Kenan Sofuoglu over the incident in the Catalunya Moto2 race that left Julian Simon with a broken leg.
Technomag-CIP rider Sofuoglu clipped Simon while battling for second in last weekend's event, with the subsequent crash taking both out and causing a double fracture of the right leg for Simon. He underwent surgery on Tuesday and is now beginning a rehabilitation programme.
Race direction met with Sofuoglu and Gino Borsoi, team manager of Simon's Aspar squad, at Silverstone yesterday.
"After listening the comments of both parties and watching a video of the incident the Race Direction concluded that rider Kenan Sofuoglu made every possible effort to try to avoid the collision," said a MotoGP statement.
"No sanction was inflicted."
