Lorenzo is quite right to be furious. It's not like Bautista hasn't done this before - he did exactly the same thing at turn 1 at Valencia last year too, and took out several riders including Hayden, who suffered a broken wrist because of it. If you look at the overhead footage, Bautista was never going to make the corner - he was still accelerating while everyone else is on the brakes. More than just a 'racing incident' it was a reckless and boneheaded attempt to gain early places, and when moves like that put other riders at extreme risk, it's right that he should be heavily penalised for it. At the moment he's just not learning from his mistakes.
