When he gets hit from the inside, it isn't his fault that the guy who hits him goes down. And when he crashes immediately in the same spot as CC, he didn't cause anyone to crash.

You should just do a twenty minute compilation of ALL his crashes. He has crashed a lot. Almost as many times as he has won races.

Can we agree that reckless riding is not the same as intentionally forcing someone wide and into the gravel pit?

Poor judgment is not necessarily malicious.

Agreed.

You went there so I dove in

But Lorenzo probably wasn't doing this intentionally.

Lorenzo's not too banged up, he's just part of the dying "slow is smooth, smooth is fast" generation. I do think he and HRC found something in his Japan visit. I really hope he's coming to terms with that bike and will continue to mix it up, sans cluster bomb corner entry.
