World News – AU – Aleix Espargaro: I tried to avoid Marquez, then Pol hit me


Aleix Espargaro explains the Aragon MotoGP qualifying shock with his brother Pol: «  I had to take my bike to avoid contact with Alex Marquez then Pol Hit Me’

The end of qualifying for MotoGP Aragon saw a strange collision between Aleix Espargaro and his younger brother Pol, just behind Alex Marquez at the last corner

The speed difference suggested that Aleix, Marquez or both were going slowly over the race line, but Pol kept his thoughts to himself

« Everything was going great until the last corner I would have had perfect time to do the second row but it happened, » said Pol

« I’m sorry guys but I won’t talk about it I don’t want to talk about the other runners because in the past my words have been distorted and I don’t want to be in trouble anymore »

« Well that wasn’t very strange Alex Marquez was in the middle and I had to take my bike to avoid contact with him and Pol hit me, » said the Aprilia rider

« I was pushing In fact on this lap I made my record in the first split Then in the last corner Alex was in the middle of the line

« I was maybe a little wide on the brakes because I was risking everything! And when I took the bike to avoid contact, Pol hit me So unfortunately our qualifying was over

« My brother hit me real hard on the back of the bike and hit the back part of my foot and ankle It’s painful I don’t think nothing is broken But it’s getting bigger! I are fine

« But I really don’t understand how a guy in MotoGP in the last corner, where we come to 350 km / h, can be in that corner in the middle, stopped It’s… anyway »

Repsol rookie Honda Marquez, who won his first MotoGP podium last weekend at Le Mans, said:

« I don’t know what happened, I saw it on TV but only very quickly I tried to get behind Viñales, but then I saw that Pol and Aleix were coming

« I said ‘OK I don’t want to be in the middle’ so I went wide, and I think both were going a bit wide too, or a bit too late under braking

« So Aleix cut the gas, and Pol was coming in. I think for me it’s not that Aleix put him in the middle on purpose, so for me it’s not a penalty »

The two Espargaro brothers were called to the Race Direction after qualifying, but no penalty was announced by the FIM Stewards
