Very unfortunate for Lorenzo but at least he escaped serious injury at a critical point in the season with back to back races. It'll be interesting to see whether he receives any special dispensation for the blown engine. When you have such rules they're bound to have unintended consequences. There needs to be more consistency overall from the governing authority, the FIM. What Bautista did had a big impact on the championship race but was accidental and luckily did not cause serious physical injury, whereas Sofuoglu's behaviour in WSS was intentional. If you deliberately try to knock someone down with your car but through sheer luck happen to miss them, is that less deserving of punishment than accidentally knocking someone down?
