Don't be sorry, Hector.

You merely corrected the bad luck Bautista gave to Jorge at Asses.

In racing, these things happen.

Let's face it, if Casey was fit Dani would not be challenging for title anyway.

Alvaro got a back of the grid penalty for his poor judgement, but in this case Barbera had full control of his bike right until he hit Dani's rear tire, taking a line that did not exist.

He deserves at least a one race ban, and some investigation in to how much control he had, cause it looks like he only really lost it when he rammed in to the rear wheel of Dani Pedrosa.

Conspiracy theory, probably not, but Hector caused an avoidable accident, and he is so guilty its not even funny.

Yes lorenzo was taken out by bautista if not gap would have been bigger without this incident, but I and I believe many fans really wanted pedrosa to clinch title this year as he's got so many injuries over the years sometimes twice a season, and this was his best chance.

For the likes of Lorenzo you could always say ok next season but dani has this problem like one crash and its all over.
that's why I am really really sad that its most likely over for him in a year which he remained injury free till date.

The most ridiculous thing about this apology is that it is actually a word-by-word copy & paste job from Bautista's apology after Assen. Seriously, look it up, I'm absolutely not joking. They couldn't even be ****d to write their own apology for this. All they did was change the name from "Lorenzo" to "Dani". Really makes me doubt the sincerity of it to be honest... not that it means much now anyway, damage is done.
