subordinate MotoGP in Catalonia Starting on Sunday is tough: Francesco Bagnaia, Takaaki Nakagami and Alex Rins take off after just a few seconds in the Barcelona Grand Prix. Approaching the first corner, Nakagami slips, taking the other two with him.
Carried away by his Japanese teammate’s MotoGP handling, Alex Rins was shocked after the race. “First of all, I hope Taka is well. I met him in the hospital, he looked so bad.” Then Reigns made the race driver responsible: “He can’t go on like this, it’s impossible!”
The Japanese get away with impunity
Although the race director announced an investigation, there was no penalty against the Japanese. A week ago. Reigns also clashed with Nakagami at Mugello. “He’s crossed the limit again.” He judges the Spaniard and immediately mocks the race director’s decision. “This is unacceptable. I don’t understand why there was no punishment. Today everyone saw that race management was not up to the standard of MotoGP.” The Spaniard rages: “We drive at 350 km / h. This is not just a game.”
For another dive pilot, Francesco Bagnaia, Nakagami is also the culprit. “He does it all the time. In Mugello and here too, it was the same driver who caused the fall due to his risky driving style.”
Bagnaia and Rins mention that they will try to talk to the crash pilot. In the end, it is all about safety. Bagnaia does not leave good hair on the race hosts either. Ducati pilot: “The fact that nothing is ever done again is completely incomprehensible to me.”
Rinse breaks his hand
Nakagami was unable to comment after the incident as he was in hospital for tests. However, Team Honda announced via Twitter that no serious head injuries were found. Carried away, Alex Rains was less fortunate: he broke his hand. The Japanese and Spanish players missed today’s experience in Catalonia on the same track.
Rins will now be treated for 10 days and then rechecked before the Sachsenring race on June 19. Francesco Bagnaia slipped away uninjured, but a zero-fault on his part bothers him twice. After nine races, the Ducati rider is now 66 points behind championship leader Fabio Quartararo.
