Marquez: "It was a race incident but if anyone is to blame it was me"

Marquez will not remember this weekend in Mugello for good. Although he returned after an injury he had, Marquez was unlucky again and this time caused an accident on the track. He made contact with Binder and that's how the crash actually happened "I touched with Binder, it was a race incident but if anyone is to blame it was me," Marquez told DAZN on Sunday, as quoted by motorsport "I was coming from behind, I tried to overtake him in Turn 2, we were in that chicane where several riders crashed in the same way, he closed in front of me and fortunately I was the only one who crashed.

"It was a first lap in which, for the first time, I felt I was in a better position to attack than to defend myself. Still, Marquez is optimistic and believes in the progress of his team "Surely the race would have been a long one, but we have taken a step forward this weekend.

"I understood some things and the good thing is that next week we race again and I'll be fresher because I didn't complete the race today. "We have to keep working in the pits with my team."

Binder and Morbidelli

Binder described how everything looked from his angle, and it seems that the airbag was exactly what created the most problems for him during the race.

"On my lap heading to the grid I tucked the front at the third-last corner and I almost crashed, I was really lucky that when I hit the kerb and managed to save it," Binder, who finished fifth, began. "In general it was a little bit more difficult than what I would have liked, I didn't get the best of starts.

"When Marc rode into the side of me, my airbag went off and I rode with my airbag on for a whole lap. "Everyone knows with the airbag on you can barely breathe and you can't move so much on the bike and that was really difficult, so I lost a lot of time there as well."

Franco Morbidelli is another one of those who had no luck during the race "I had an unfortunate incident behind Marc, to avoid him and his bike I needed to go straight at Turn 3 and I lost the chance to stay with the pack for some more laps," he said after finishing 16th.

"But anyway, I didn't have the speed that was required to fight with the MotoGP guys. "It's a pity, but it's not the thing that burns the most today."
