“I have to be sincere,” Petrucci said. “I thought about it and I hoped Andrea was close, but I think Andrea could fight for the championship without my help this time. I thought, ‘Okay, maybe [Marquez] will go wide in one corner and I will try to go in, but he didn’t make any mistake. First of all, I don’t think it was a good image for the championship to give the position on the last lap—we are all fighting for something here.”
Excellent words: “We are all fighting for something here.” Petrucci has worked hard to earn the respect he now commands, coming up through the hard and, fortunately, temporary world of CRT bikes.
Andrea Dovizioso preferred 16 points in hand to the zero score he expected from pushing harder. “I realized from the first few laps that it was a very difficult race for me because I didn’t have the grip and I didn’t understand why,” he said. “I tried to keep up with Marquez and Petrucci and I did for 20 laps, but the track conditions were really difficult. I preferred to slightly drop my pace to bring home third place.”
Maverick Vinales, fourth on Sunday, emphasized that the Yamaha needs “a step” in wet performance. “The handling of the bike today was really good,” he said. “I’m happy with the front. But the rear was very difficult to get the traction, especially on the left. I was sliding the bike a lot. I could not lean. It was difficult, like going on the ice.”
