Arón Canet made a mistake while braking at Turn 6 and collided with three other riders, taking him out of the race.
“I started from a little far back, but I started to come back until I got up to seventh position. I had a small problem with my left glove; that’s the hand that I use for the rear brake instead of my foot, and I couldn’t stop my bike properly. I spent a few laps in that position and when four or five laps remained I decided to attack. I started overtaking other riders and when I wanted to pass Jorge [Martín], we all braked very late. The suspension jammed and when Jorge turned in, as is normal, I was really close to him and was unable to stop the bike. I hit him, Enea [Bastianini] and Toni Arbolino. I apologise, because it was not my intention to do this. These mistakes shouldn’t be made, much less by a rider like me, who already has three years of experience in the World Championship. Now we have to think about continuing to work; we have a test in Aragon coming up and then the French Grand Prix.“
