Crash misery for Bradl in Aragón

Sunday, 30 September 2012

LCR Honda MotoGP’s Stefan Bradl failed to finish the 23-lap race today at Aragón Motorland.

The German rookie was in 3rd place on the 5th lap when he lost the front end in turn three and fell unhurt. Bradl was once again up with the leaders throughout the Spanish weekend, finally taking fifth spot on the grid in yesterday’s qualifying. He started the race in the middle of the second row between Yamaha Ben Spies and Andrea Dovizioso looking very comfortable in today’s warmer conditions but lost the front pushing too hard.

“Well…it’s difficult to find the right word for me because we are all very disappointed but this is racing. My feeling out there was very good today: good overall package, good start and good firsts laps. I felt very comfortable on braking and then I noticed I could go as fast as guys like Spies and Crutchlow so I wanted to push immediately because I knew that the rear tyre would have dropped towards the end of the race. I overtook Spies and I lost the front in turn 3: maybe I was a bit too aggressive and I am sorry for my team and my fans. Anyway we are in good shape and really looking forward to the next race.”
