Hernandez: “I felt something very hot coming from below…”

Pramac Racing’s Yonny Hernandez was forced to retire from the #ArgentinaGP after a fire on his Ducati.

The Columbian rider, for whom the Gran Premio Red Bull de la República Argentina is effectively his home GP, had made a good start to the race before the incident.

Yonny Hernandez:
"I am very sad about what has happened. I started very well, recovering positions and entering the Top 10 where I wanted to finish the race. Unfortunately that problem happened. After the main straight I felt something very hot coming from below. I did not immediately notice the fire. But a couple of corners later the temperature became unbearable. I saw the flames and I had to stop. I do not know what was the problem and the team is trying to understand what happened. Certainly I had bad luck. Now I have to think only about of Jerez. I want to have a good race and I will give my all ".
