ALiex Espargar I lived a bitter moment in the MotoGP Catalan GP. The Spaniard went from joy to desolation, after he celebrated winning the race early and finished without a podium.

In the absence of a lap, Espargar did not realize that the competition was going on and took his foot off the accelerator to celebrate in front of the stands. He immediately lost positions and although he tried to recover places, he finished in fifth place.

At the end, Espargar could not hide his frustration: “I’m very sad. If they punctured me now, they wouldn’t even draw blood. I must apologize to the team, it’s a very big mistake. You can’t afford such a mistake in MotoGP fighting for a championship”; signal.

“I feel very bad, I can only apologize again. This can’t happen. I feel very bad for the team because we had done a very good job”; he added to the media.
