The crash was violent and I had to brake hard to avoid contact with Fabio – he said Johann Zarco -. I immediately noticed that a piece of its fairing was stuck in Marc’s Honda. That’s why the rear wheel slipped off at turn 5“.

I love his riding style, on Thursday I announced that he would be back strong immediately, but with a problem with his bike he shouldn’t have been riding like this. He wreaked havoc on the first lap“, Concluded the Cannes pilot. “But it’s just his word against mine“.
