And look at the Barcelona / Marquez / Espargaro situation this way:

If Marquez didn't know Espargarpo was there, he deserves a penalty for wrecklessly returning to the racing line...

if he DID know he was there, he deserves an even bigger penalty for violently taking him out...

Then take into account the accidents he has been involved in previously, and there seems to be a pattern developing... AND I STILL WANT TO KNOW WHY KENAN DID WHAT HE DID...

I find it strange that some people are trying to suggest that there are racist undertones to this....that's just bizarre! He could be a bloody Martian for all I care, it makes absolutely no difference it would still have been unacceptable behaviour....and yes Marquez is guilty of similar crimes, they are both getting away too lightly at the mo.

Where has there been a racist undertone....?
Race has sweet F-All to do with it. I just think people heard the commentators go mad when it happened and are basing their judgement on that original reaction... And not going back and watching a little more carefully.

I don't honestly think his intentions were anywhere near as bad as they looked (take the effect of the wind into account) And I will say it yet again, I want to know, if it was intentional, WHY did he do what he did. Kenan is a seasoned champion, not a young hot head. Did Foret do something to endanger him in an earlier, off-camera moment? Just speculating...

Kenan's private comment "he did it to me"
So yes, Nick and others who are battling to find reasons to defend Kenan and the the team, he did it intentionally.
My view: Four laps earlier Kenan ducked for Fabien's tear off - perhaps that incensed him.

cos its quite obvious on the tv he can look at it and learn. i doubt he would do it again. Some other incidents are less clear cut and so the riders dont learn.
To be honest it looks worse than it was. Maybe he always wanted to be a footballer.

Everyone who has been following or ever seen Kenan race before knows his riding style...firm but fair.
He's even lost position on track while avoiding other riders' indiscretions.
What he did was wrong, and he's been punished for that. He was actualy in the centre of the track with Foret moving off his line toward him, prior to the "head move". What we haven't seen is what enraged him so much. Maybe that should be looked into. What did Foret do?
Some people on here write as if they have never had road rage or swerved when someone has upset them... Yes, yes, yes he is a professional racer, but still human.
Done the crime, served the time...end of.
