Francesco Bagnaia: The reason why I crashed is something that I can't explain

The MotoGP German Grand Prix was a bad experience for Francesco Bagnai, as he suffered a crash, which made him particularly frustrated. Another frustrating fact is that Bagnaia does not know the reason why this happened, and he is still not aware of everything.

"I'm trying to repeat in my mind what happened and in any of that I can't explain my crash," he said, as quoted by motorsport. "I don't know why. For sure, if I crash it's because I did a mistake.

But in this situation, it's very difficult to know why, to understand why. "Looking at the data, it's impossible to understand things. So, I was angry with this because I can't explain it, I'm very angry for that because when you crash and you know why, normally I'm very self-critical.

"But today I can't because the reason why I crashed is something that I can't explain. So, it's more difficult to accept. "The only thing is positive thing is again we were at the top, we were the fastest and I think also looking at the pace that our potential was high.

"But this is one more time that Fabio is demonstrating that he is more complete than me."

Bagnaia on his crash

He has never experienced a crash like this, and has raced many times in Germany. Bagnaia can't stop thinking about the reason why this happened, but whatever it is, it won't help him, because it's too late to fix it now.

"I did more than 70 laps each day [in Germany] and in any of that I [didn't] feel a close thing like this," he added. "It never happened in my life that I've crashed like this – just at [Valentino Rossi's] ranch, where I'm on the dirt track, so it's easier to have that.

"But it's very difficult to know why. My lean angle was the same, the speed was the same. He will have a chance to fix things in the next races, but this could destroy his self-confidence. Still, he is an experienced biker and nothing is over for him yet.

A new day, a new challenge and a new chance for him. "I was turning more for the exit, so it's very difficult to understand why I crashed. "So, it's the most difficult thing in this moment because maybe our bike is living in a margin like this that if you go wide you crash. "But, today my crash is very, very on the limit I think."
