Looking at the footage seems to corroborate his side of the story.

Hard to imagine how he could possibly stand a bike on its front wheel with the duration of contact he had with the other bike/rider.

The first had malice and intent behind it.

I'm guessing in fairness, if he kicked the bike or the rider he may have stood a better chance of upsetting the bike and his own than tapping the front brake on a straight? just enough to give him the message, don't get me wrong Im for a lifetime ban and it shouldnt be up to his team to sack him, racers need to be able to trust bikes on the track..

Can you safely tap another bike's front brake at 200KPH?

personally? I doubt it, though evidently he can... . however imagine a straight road, 200kph, you brake instantly or hit a pothole or rock you didnt see... then contine on... cursing no doubt, heart pounding... but the bike hasn't skidded, slid, highsided, stoppied, no over the handlebars stuff..my point was kicking the bike might cause it to weave, now that is trouble at 200kph..

Yeah, I doubt it too, but I see what you mean, nevertheless he deserves never to ride again.

I think it's bad form they gave him a ban but left it to hs team to finish his career, that lad shouldn't be allowed out on a trackday... there's mistakes you can be forgiven for and then there's stuff like that
