MotoGP, Acosta: "I had a problem with the front end, but I didn't understand which one."

"I don't know if I could have won or not, but I certainly could have played it. What matters is that I had confidence and we were fast."

MotoGP: Acosta:

The opportunity really seemed to be a great one, but unfortunately it went away at the best of times. Pedro Acosta chews bitterly in the Barcelona GP. At the moment when he occupied second position and was attached to Martin, the GasGas home rookie was the victim of a crash, which marked his race.

Nevertheless, Pedro managed to restart, finishing his GP in 13th position behind Vinales' Aprilia.

"Mine was a strange crash ," he said , "to tell the truth I don't know why, but it seems there was a problem with the front. Unfortunately the thing is not clear, in fact there are some questions. However, what happened has nothing to do with Le Mans, as our bike was really competitive here in Barcelona."

However, the glass should be considered half full.
"I am still happy because for the second time I was playing for something important and the bike was competitive. This weekend I was fast on the track both in the race and in qualifying. Considering all the crashes I think it was one of my best weekends even if the regret of the crash remains."

Next among the issues is the tire.
"The soft was a realistic option and I think I gathered a lot of info today so I won't screw up in the future. I was simply doing a management race for the finale, trying to understand the corners well and how to deal with them. Unfortunately, however, I crashed and in the end that's life."

Who knows if without that mistake victory would have come?
"I don't know if I would have been able to win or not also because I want to respect the performance of the riders on the podium today. I certainly had the cards to play for something important. That's how it went, now we go to Mugello to do our best."
