At the previous race Bautista was running at the same pace as the Repsols. He may have been thinking that if he could just get away with them at the start that he could challenge during the race. It was obvious that he braked way too late, but there was no intent to take Lorenzo out, and he was immediately apologetic. A few years ago in F1 Schumacher got a penalty which had to be taken within 3 laps, when there were only 3 laps left. He pulled in on the final lap and effectively crossed the line while taking his penalty and still won the race. Cheating, maybe, but within the rules as was Sofuoglus action. However, I do not condone what Kenan did and believe that instant disqualification would have been appropriate. Unlike Bautista, his action was deliberate and could have had serious consequences if Foret had crashed. This kind of behaviour cannot be allowed to go unpunished, and if the authorities do not review their decision and impose a 3 race ban on Sofuoglu then I would not be sur
