The FIM Technical department would like to confirm the position regarding engine usage of both teams and the rider.

Team GRT up to and including FP2 at Jerez had 1 active engine; 6 in total made active and 5 removed from service.

Lorenzo Zanetti up to and including FP2 at Jerez had 2 active engines; 5 in total made active and 3 removed from service. Zanetti had one more engine available to use (2.3.9.a).

Zanetti’s chassis was transferred to the GRT team fulfilling the obligation to maintain the use of one chassis (2.5.10).

Zanetti used from FP3 the 6th engine of GRT/Rea which is now also recorded as the 6th engine of Zanetti (2.3.9.a/b).

Moving forward – if either team or rider use a 7th engine a Pit Lane start penalty will be applied according to article 1.21.23.
