"During the Moto3 Race of the Gran Premio Red Bull de la Rep?blica Argentina, the rider number 5, Romano Fenati collided with two other riders whilst passing them in the final turns of the race," said a statement from Race Direction.

"A Race Direction decision was held with all three riders present.

"The decision of Race Direction is to impose the addition of one Penalty Point to the record of rider number 5 Romano Fenati. No appeal has been lodged."

The victory was Fenati's first since his rookie 2012 season and the first ever for Valentino Rossi's new Moto3 team.
