“Unfortunately, racing is also like that,” Bagnaia wrote on his Instagram profile. I want to apologize for the gestures and images you saw. We are not like that, and it is wrong. There are, however, moments of great tension. See you again at Mugello.”

“It was a race incident, an unfortunate circumstance. I think it could have been avoided, he could have been more careful and I could have closed the throttle to avoid it. But we didn’t, and what happened happened,” Bagnaia himself had previously said.
