Yamaha riders Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, James Toseland and Colin Edwards have all been fined for performing practice starts after the chequered flag at the end of MotoGP qualifying at Misano on Saturday.

"In the MotoGP class practice starts are not permitted after the chequered flag at the end of the qualifying practice," reads article 1.21.16 of the FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Regulations.

Race Direction thus decided to penalise each rider with a fine of USD 1,000.

No appeal has been lodged and the decision of Race Direction is final.
