A bitter Sunday for our Suomy rider Pecco Bagnaia at the Motegi circuit in Japan, who crashes a few corners from the end of the race while trying to overtake championship leader Fabio Quartararo to earn the eighth position.
Starting from twelfth position, the Japanese Grand Prix proved to be a complicated race from the start for Pecco, who blames himself for the mistake he made and for having wasted important points.
However, our Suomy rider recognizes that it is from mistakes like these that you can learn and he is already looking forward to next weekend’s race in Thailand.
“First, I would like to apologise to my team because today’s crash was only due to my mistake. Compared to this morning’s warm up, I didn’t have a good feeling with the bike and I made an overambitious maneuver in an attempt to overtake Fabio. I was hoping that if I passed him, maybe I could take advantage of a possible mistake by Viñales to make up more ground. In any case, I will reflect on my mistake. The only positive note today was Jack’s victory, which makes me really happy. Now let’s try to stay focused and think about the next race on Sunday in Buriram, Thailand”.
