The Spaniard’s ugly fall does not leave the world champion indifferent

It is controversy in MotoGp over the characteristics of the area of the track where Pol Espargaró’s ugly crash occurred during the second free practice session of the Portuguese GP: to raise his voice is the world champion himself, Pecco Bagnaia, who did not mince words during an intervention to the microphones of ‘Sky Sport’.

“The first time we raced here, in 2020, I pointed out to the safety officials that the gravel was too coarse and could have created problems. Last year I came back to the pits with real stones and they made fun of me…. This year something has changed but evidently it is not enough, new gravel is only present in a little section.”

“You can clearly see in the replay that Pol arrives on the gravel and starts doing bad spins,” Bagnaia added. “He spins badly, he doesn’t slow down. It’s very dangerous, he took a big risk.”
