Last Sunday took place the Grand Prix of Catalonia and Fabio Quartararo sent a message to MotoGP which is not at all lenient. At the start of the race, a huge pileup was caused at the 1st corner. Enea Bastianini missed his braking and took Zarco, Digannantonio, Bezzecchi and Alex Marquez with him into the gravel trap. A bend later, another Ducati fell to the ground. Francesco Bagnaia went highside and slipped in the middle of the track, Brad Binder couldn’t avoid him and rolled over his leg. Very quickly, the red flag was waved by the commissioners, the session was interrupted. The pilots returned to their boxes and the images of the crash were played on a loop, something that Fabio Quartararo did not appreciate at all.
“I almost ran over him, so I saw the flight he made. I saw his fall very well. What would have to change is that [quand] we have falls like that, we are in the box and we see the falls repeatedly. Honestly, I don’t think anyone understands what it’s like to come back after seeing falls like that. For us, for the family watching… Me, it’s different because I’m a little used to it and in the end, you manage to get it out of your head, but I imagine for his parents. [Pour] Pecco or any driver, to see a crash of your son or someone in your family who is really hurt, I think it’s hard” comment collected by Motorsport.com
To sum up
The 2021 world champion has taken on MotoGP after Bagnaia’s crash during the Catalunya Grand Prix. According to him, Dorna, organizer of the championship, should not have broadcast the images of the crash on a loop.
