Statement from John regarding the #DohaGP
I let my emotions get the better of me in Qatar, having been taken down for the second week in succession as a consequence of another rider’s mistake.
I must apologise for my conduct – I didn’t react well to the incident. It is an adrenaline-fuelled sport, with obvious inherent danger; having a competitor’s bike strike my head triggered an out-of-character response and I’d like to apologise to the fans, my team, PETRONAS and our partners. I accept the penalty and will move onto Portimao focused on the task at hand.
