That's not going to go down well at Borgo Panigale...

This basically says no drink from Thursday evening....

An edited version of MotoGP's rules regarding alcohol at race weekends is as follows:

‘Applicants with an alcohol addiction will not be accepted.

‘For safety reasons riders must not participate in competition if they are found to have a blood alcohol concentration superior to the threshold of 0.10. g/L.

‘The presence of alcohol in a concentration higher than the threshold and the consumption/use of alcohol (ethanol) are prohibited in motorcycling sport during the in-competition period and will be considered as a violation of the Medical Code.’

‘..The in-competition period is defined as the period commencing 12 hours before the rider rides his bike for the first time during the event, ending 30 minutes after the end of the last race in his class and category.

‘This is the minimum period of time that riders should abstain from alcohol prior to competition for safety reasons.

‘For the avoidance of doubt the possession, use and consumption of alcohol during the podium ceremony is not considered a violation under the FIM Medical Code providing that the podium ceremony takes place at the end of the event.’

Any violation of the alcohol code during a MotoGP weekend will result in a rider being:

‘Immediately excluded and disqualified by the FIM MotoGP Stewards. Further sanctions may be applied in accordance with the FIM Disciplinary & Arbitration Code and/or the relevant Sporting Regulations.’

But that doesn't stop him from drinking when on holiday in the off-season break. Having said that, if he has driven while pissed that could be grounds for disciplinary action, even to the point of dismissal. I can't imagine Ducati would do that, as he is the Favoured One, but I can't see them being remotely happy about it. They want role models, not drunk drivers.

His apology was a bit pathetic...

“I am sorry for what happened; I am practically a non-drinker, and it was a serious carelessness which should not have happened,” Bagnaia added in his social media post.
“I apologise to everyone, and I can assure you that I have learned my lesson.

“Never get behind the wheel after drinking alcohol. Thank you.”

That obviously came from his management.
