“Someone needs to pay” for MotoGP horror crash

The Petronas SRT rider collided with the rear of Johann Zarco’s Avintia Ducati on the run through the fast Turn 2 kink during Sunday’s Red Bull Ring race, with both lucky to escape the violent crash unscathed.

The two machines also narrowly avoided wiping out the Yamaha’s of Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales in a sickening incident, which led to the race being halted. No action was taken on the crash, and it was deemed a racing incident, but Morbidelli took to Twitter to air his views on this.

“We will talk about it on Thursday, that’s for sure,” said Morbidelli. “I think that every time both riders crash it is a common habit to call it a racing incident and situation solved.

“But this ‘racing incident’ happened at 310km/h (192.6mph). Great luck we’re in one piece, but someone needs to pay [for] the mistake.”
