Eleven Moto3 riders have each been docked three grid positions and will be banned from the first half of the 20-minute warm-up session for the German MotoGP.

"On 11 July 2015 during final minutes of the Moto3 Qualifying session of the GoPro Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland, these riders were riding slowly close to the racing line, thereby disturbing other riders," said a statement from Race Direction.

"This directly contravenes the instructions given at the riders briefing on March 26, the reminder notice to riders issued on April 30, and specifically contravenes the instructions given at the Moto3 rider's briefing on 24 June at Assen."
