The ramifications of Sepang continue to be felt and for the final round of the MotoGP season there will be no pre-event press conference. Dorna and the FIM has taken the unprecedented step of cancelling the press conference to instead summon all riders to appear before FIM present Vito Ippolito and Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta.

A statement from the FIM said:

"Following the events that occurred at the Malaysian Grand Prix and further developments over the following week and given the exceptional circumstances, the Permanent Bureau of the FIM MotoGPTM World Championship, comprising of Messrs Vito Ippolito, FIM President, and Carmelo Ezpeleta, Chief Executive Officer of Dorna Sports, will summon all MotoGPTM riders and their  respective team managers to address the situation on Thursday 5th November at 15.30 Local Time.

Given these circumstances, the pre-event press conference scheduled at 17.00 will be cancelled."
