Espargaro: “Petrucci made a mistake”

Espargaro: “Petrucci made a mistake”

Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Aleix Espargaro fought through the pain in Mugello before being taken out of the race by Danilo Petrucci.

Espargaro suffered with some bad luck: The Spaniard fought back the pain in his right hand for the whole weekend, but finally ended his race in the gravel due to a crash caused by another rider. Luckily, his injured hand didn’t suffer any further damage.

Aleix Espargaro: “There is nothing good to say: it was the very beginning of the race when I got hit. It's a pity, Petrucci made a mistake and prevented me to continue my race. I struggled with pain for the whole weekend but we found a good set-up. Also in this morning’s warm-up I felt confident in making more laps with less pain and I was really positive for the race. We’re having some bad luck lately, but I hope this will turn into positive luck in Barcelona in a couple of weeks. I will be at home and I definitely wish for a positive result there, not only for me, but also for the team and the factory who are really supporting me.”
