Joan Mir He finished eighth on the first day of the French GP and with a hard crash on the Suzuki that left him slightly bruised on his left side and neck.

-How was the fall?

-It was a pretty hard crash, because I lost the front wheel just at the first touch of the brake. It was one of those falls in which there was no time to slow down and I reached the gravel very quickly. It has conditioned FP2 a bit, because normally when you have a drag, you get up quickly, the suit doesn’t just break and you can go out again with the same suit, but in this case we had to change everything. I am also physically sore.

-What hurts?

-It hurts all over the dorsal part, the ribs. We have looked at it in the clinic. I have fractured ribs other times and it is not this, but there is a significant blow. Then I also have little mobility in the neck, I’m a bit hooked, a bit Robocop. Enantyum tonight and sleep soon.

-Do you know how fast the fall was?

I’m not one of those people who likes to ask about these things. It was at a fast point, turn 7; in third, limiter and brake.
