No points for Barbera at Brno after collision with Corti
Heads and tails for the Avintia Blusens MotoGP riders at the GP of Brno. Héctor Barberá, who yesterday told us the good feeling he had for today’s race, was not able to finish it due to a fall on the second lap when he was trying to overtake a group that was holding back his progression to the CRT top positions. It was a pity because today Héctor was convinced of being able to face up to his most direct rivals to finish in top positions.
In five days’ time, the Avintia Blusens team will be at Silverstone for racing the Great Britain GP.
8 Héctor Barberá: (NC): “We started so far back and on the first lap I was with a group in which normally I am not with. I wanted to overtake them as soon as possible because Espargaró was going and, today here, I felt very strong and I was able to compete for the victory. When I was about to pass the group ahead of me, Corti and Petrucci have overtaken between them and I think that they have braked earlier than usual, due to the own fight and, when I have braked, I have not been able to avoid Corti. I have tried not to hit him by lifting the bike just before, but I have not succeeded. It is a pity because I felt very strong. In acceleration we suffer a little bit and passing while braking is always risky. I do not know, perhaps our appetite has played a dirty trick on us but fortunately the next week there is another GP to do it well again. Tomorrow I am going to have a check-up, because the neck bothers me a little bit, but surely I will be at my best at Silverstone”.
