Moto2: No penalty for Sofuoglu over clash

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."
