After crash back home without any points

Unlucky crash in the second lap of Sunday´s race at Montmeló circuit ended Abraham´s hopes to score more points in the MotoGP World Championship. After the unsuccesful start came the crash which was mainly caused by rider´s big effort to reach riders in front of him. Abraham was trying to enter back the race but it wasn´t possible due to bad technical condition of the bike.

„Well I don´t have too much to say now. Maybe just that this is all my fault, I made a mistake so I´m the only one who is responsible for that situation. Right from the start I had slightly overheated clutch because of long waiting for the starting lights. Race start was terrible and I lost two more positions. Then I started to get closer to rider in front of me and push really hard that time. I was too fast in one corner and the rear part of my bike slipped away. Probably too much effort. This time I regret it a lot. When I fall nothing serious happened."

„We cannot be happy about the result today. Karel tried to reach the riders in front of him and he was too fast in one corner. What a shame! Unfortunately, even such things happen in bike racing. I hope that tomorrow we will be able to forget it and see the brighter future. Bike worked very well the whole weekend and I´m sure it will last like this. We can be optimistic for the next race in Assen."
