    Can't help but feel his apology would have sounded a bit more sincere if he wasn't basically saying, "not my fault, the other guy started it"

    A man would have finished the race and then he would have gone to Race Direction to try and get some justice for the preceding incident.
    I shouldn’t have reacted to provocation.
    The criticisms are correct and I understand the animosity towards me.
    I want to apologise to everyone who believed in me and all those who felt hurt by my action.
    A horrible image of me and of the sport has come out.
    I'm not like that, people who know me well know that!
    In my career, I've always been a just rider. Last year I was one of the few who was not penalised, I have never put someone else's life in jeopardy, on the contrary, I have always maintained that there are riders on the track who are dangeous because of their riding style.
    It's true, unfortunately I have an impulsive character, but my intention was certainly not to hurt a rider like me rather I wanted to make him understand that what he was doing was dangerous and how I could also have done something similar to what he did to me!
    I do not want to justify myself, I know that my actions were not justifiable, I just want to apologise to everyone.
    Now I will have time to reflect and clear my head.

    He did similar last year too. Boy has anger issues, probably a good thing he's out the door.

    You mean he can get his licence back in 5 months, which is only any use to him if someone will give him a ride?

    Someone will - the cameras will be permanently on him so whoever the sponsor is will get really good exposure...

    Does he not first have to apply for a race license to then able a viable rider for races? now if he has bad form, who would want to give him a race license?

    I'm not sure there's "The bloke is a cock" type reasoning when it comes to race licences.... You either fill the criteria/tests/exams or you don't.

    Personally I think he has more than paid the price for what he did.
    He did a stupid thing but know one died or even crashed, as long as he has
    learnt a lesson then I would happy to see him ride again.

    Difficult one. The guy is a 9 carat tw@ but he is fast (at times). Maybe not in GPs but can see him in WSB or something maybe where someone might give him a go. Given his history though you'd get him in knowing he's likely to be an arse at some point. Rossi said something about him having major anger issues and exploding every 2/3 rounds in some tantrum or other.

    Then again he might just disappear and never race again. We had 3 very good footballers in our school. 1 played in the Championship at Ipswich among others, 1 at Leicester among others and played in the Premiership which was very weird seeing him play against Chelsea on Sky. The last was by all accounts the best and he was on the books at QPR. He was late for training 3 times and kicked out due to attitude and ended up playing Saturday league for the school old boys team.
