Barberá apologetic after Pedrosa crash

Barberá apologetic after Pedrosa crash

Pramac Racing Team’s Héctor Barberá has publically apologised for the crash that took both him and Dani Pedrosa out of today’s Misano race.

Getting back on the track after a six-week absence, Barberá was eager to ride his Ducati again, but unfortunately his race finished too early for him to demonstrate his potential. He lost the front of his bike in one of the first few corners, crashing and taking World Championship contender Dani Pedrosa out as well. The error was obviously unintentional and Barberá extends his apologies to the rider and his team.

"It’s a shame. I was impatient to get back on the track, but my adventure finished too early to enjoy myself. Unfortunately, when I followed Dani’s wheel I lost my braking point and hit the brakes far too late. I tried to slow the bike down, but I lost grip on the front. I’m very disappointed, even more so because I took out Dani in the process and that was the last thing that I wanted to happen. It was my fault that he crashed out and I apologise profusely to him for that. I also apologise to my team that worked so hard this week. Now I have to wait another two weeks, but I will be ready for the Spanish round."
