“Was scary, really scary. When I looked at the big screen, I just saw the screen one time, I was seeing Aleix on the gravel and a blue bike there," Bagnaia said as he reflected on the Dutch MotoGP race.
“So, I imagined it was Fabio with Aleix, so for sure we had a bit of luck. But then I just said ‘ok, I can be more relaxed, I can do my race with more calm’. But looking at the gap with [Marco] Bezzecchi, he was always catching.
“So, I had to push again, I had to open this gap again to be smarter and more calm again later in the race. But then the rain came. When I saw the rain I just slowed down a bit, but Bezzecchi was pushing again," he continued.
“So, it was very difficult. I was terrified to crash again, so the main thing was to finish the race. It wasn’t easy, but I tried to be smart, I tried to not push over the limit.”
Ducati are placed at the top of the Constructors' championship standings and they are followed by Yamaha and Aprilia respectively.
