Seems that Lorenzo had a slightly less select choice of words when interviewed by the Spanish media, slamming Bautista viciously despite the guy's repeated and obviously heartfelt apologies. Granted, Lorenzo has every right to be fuming, but somehow it amuses me greatly that his hotheaded outbursts and the continued complaints afterwards actually seemed to cost him a lot more fans in Spain than the crash might have Bautista who actually even seemed to gather new ones just because of his upstanding behaviour afterwards alone.

Turns out there's being a good racer on track and being a good person off track and not every fan is just drawn to the results.

agree 100%. Lorenzo has every reason to be miffed, but his bitching to the media (like he did with #58 last year) isn't winning him any fans. Many riders have been taken out by other riders (Rossi took Stoner out, Stoner took Gibernau out, Pedrosa took Hayden out etc etc), but they didn't moan about the unfairness of the penalties to every media outlet that would listen to them.

Tough one Jorge, that shouldn't have happened. Bautista made a stupid move and has been punished. Now give it a rest and move on!!!

Of course he's angry, that could be the difference between winning and losing the championship that he has been working/riding so hard for.

Every racer knows what Bautista was doing yes it was wrong but it was a gamble. If it payed off he may have got a podium which is a win in moto gp these days for most riders. If it failed like it did then he falls takes a few riders and takes the penalty!

I know many of us would have done the same in his position.
Don't get me wrong he deserves a penalty but I bet he isn't worried about it!!

SO, does anyone on here think that the engine rule should apply?

For that fact, does it apply?

They made Rossi do it last year but then he wasn't and isnt a main WC contender at present.

Just asking to see what the view is of people on this site

Cheers

@Podster .
there is nothing in the rules that say he can get a new engine outside a pit lane start with 10 second penalty.
how often does an engine kill itself in a crash?
very rarely does it happen.
so its not really clear why the engine destroyed itself , it could be it was a faulty engine and not directly a total result of the crash .
