Mir avoids "dangerous moment" with Vinales in MotoGP French GP practice
I avoid it
Suzuki's Joan Mir said he was "surprised" how Yamaha's Maverick Vinales came back on track after a break during the MotoGP Grand Prix FP2 in France.
Vinales braked himself into the double right-handed Garage Vert on Friday's second MotoGP outing in Le Mans, which was drying, and had to run through the gravel because of the wet-painted drainage area.
The Yamaha rider returned to the track at the end of the corner, forcing the following Mir to take off at Turn 9 on the straight between Garage Vert and the Chemin aux Boeuf section.
I was visibly angry about it and they both exchanged gestures about the incident after the checkered flag.
The Suzuki rider says he was "not particularly angry" with Vinales, but feels that if Mir had been further up the straight than the Yamaha was back on the road, they might be in a "dangerous moment" Route drove.
"I wasn't particularly angry, I was really surprised to see a bike come over the straight like this and I didn't see Maverick's head moving, just [he] was looking at the track," told Me, who was ninth overall. said about the incident.
"The good thing is that I closed the throttle, but [if I was] 50 meters ahead we probably would have had a dangerous moment - but [it would have been] a lot worse for him because I was the one with the speed but he was the one on the worst path, so he was probably even more dangerous to him.
"But it's important that everyone understands that this can't happen, but I don't want to blame Vinales, but it has to be remembered that we can't do this because this layout is really dangerous because it's in the middle of the Road lies. "
I avoid it
For his part, Vinales did not feel "too aggressive" when he got back on the circuit and found that he would have tried to spin earlier on the wet grass that he could have crashed on my way.
"I saw him in front of the [corner] entrance," said the runner-up Vinales.
"I've seen it before and then I've been on the artificial turf so I'm not going to rely on the artificial turf because I'm going to crash and it's wet, so I just went straight.
"I don't know if there was enough space on the track [for him] but I didn't find it too aggressive and certainly not intentional because I stepped on the grass and didn't want to put any banking business because it's very dangerous.
"Imagine if I crash the bike will hit the middle [of the track] when it passes.
"So, sure, after that I'll say 'I see you, don't worry'.
"I think I gave enough space but I don't know, I wasn't on Joan Mir's bike to see if I gave enough space, but I still tried to get out on the track as safely as possible. "
