Lorenzo handed one-race ban

Spanish rider Jorge Lorenzo will sit out the next week´s Marlboro Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix in Sepang, after Race Direction decided he rode in an irresponsible manner during Sunday´s Japanese GP, causing danger to other riders.

Lorenzo was involved in a last lap crash in today´s 250cc race at Motegi, colliding with Alex de Angelis in the hairpin leading to the back straight. The San Marino rider went wide and Lorenzo saw an opportunity to overtake both him and Dani Pedrosa but ending up crashing out and taking De Angelis with him. The decision was confirmed in appeal by the FIM Stewards and is final.
