Miller Fined For Shoving Bautista. Bautista Notches Yet Another Rider On The “Knocked Down” List


FIM Grand Prix World Championship Decision of the FIM MotoGP Stewards Panel
Gran Premio Red Bull de España – Jerez de la Frontera, 07 May

On 07 May 2017 at 14:10 during the MotoGP Race of the Gran Premio Red Bull de España, at Turn 1 after an incident, Jack Miller was found to have pushed another rider involved in the incident.

This behaviour contravenes Article 3.3.2.2 of the FIM Grand Prix World Championship. It was considered as an infringement of the FIM Grand Prix World Championship Regulations, being detrimental to the interests of the sport.

Jack Miller was requested to attend a hearing with the FIM MotoGP Stewards Panel. He attended the hearing and acknowledged the facts presented.

For the above reasons, being the first offense, the FIM MotoGP Stewards Panel has decided to impose on Jack Miller a fine of 1000 Euros according to Article 3.2.1 of the FIM Grand Prix World Championship Disciplinary and Arbitration Code.

No appeal has been lodged; the decision of FIM MotoGP Steward is final.
