The way he was pushed out, he could not have slowed down to go around those things. LH KR situation would have been the same had there been some barriers at the bus stop chicane.
Actually i´m not, and he could have avoided "the sleeping policeman" simply by going straight ahead or making the pass stick like Grosjean did. Like EVERY OTHER driver has done for years.
He made the wrong decision here and tried to enter the track where another car was.

Not sure how you connect those two. Maldonado himself had several options here.
Under-cut hamilton (not always this works)
Go around the outside (must be in front almost for the person on the inside to yield)
Go left after he was off track.
Back off and try next time.
Going off track and T-boning another driver is not ok. He tried to make it work but he failed, that´s why he´s mad at Hamilton.
