Which corner did Nicky run off on? I think we can find a track map on MotoGP.com or Aragon site.
the fact there were tyres at that point says to me the car drivers must see it as an issue
Cars run a different config with a much sharper T16.
There can't really be any doubt that the fence, where Hayden went, was a screw-up.
But that can sometimes happen, people make mistakes.
What worries me is that when something's screwed up in MotoGP, they NEVER admit ANYTHING.
Like when Kato died, and his body was lying right there on the track among huge amount of debris, and the race wasn't even stopped (or was it later, can't remember, but not for several laps) and then you got the cornerworkers running for their lives.. still according to the organisers statements everything was handled like it should be. Just ask KRJR, who nearly rode over Kato's body, how good the handling was!
Didn't realise it was t16. So it was in the fastest corner after the longest straight.. meaning if you try to save it - which should be everyone's instinct since i) you want to rejoin the race if you can, and ii) well, crashing can really hurt.. - you can travel a fair bit of distance. And they put a lawn followed by a hard wall there, after the gravel trap and bit of track for cars?
Yeah, I'd also call that an oversight by those who are responsible for track safety...
Stolen from another site.
That's a shocker!! Bloody hell... Easy to see how he was a bit lost with how to wash off speed with the varying surfaces. But really, this spot is at the end of one of the fastest straights in racing, and well, yeah. Someone should lose their job!
On the other side of the coin, the rider's themselves, should have mayhaps had a bit closer look at their playground. I'd say they will be in the future!
Bit of a LUCKY wakeup for everyone involved.
WTF is that yellow shit all over the ground?
Nicky pissed himself.
Interesting observation: I was browsing MotoGP.com trying to find the video of Nicky's crash. Besides actual race feed with one crash replay it's absolutely nowhere to be found. Like it didn't happen. And usually there is short clip of every crash of any given race, practice or quali. I'm starting to believe in Dorna conspiracy,
They were caught pants down on this one, and they know it. So after the lame excuses - it was Nicky´s own fault, etc - now they´re just hoping that this will be soon forgotten.
Dorna´s attitude towards rider safety would really need some thorough makeover. They SAY that they take it seriously, but cases like this reveal that it´s really just that. Empty words.
Pretty sure superbikes use the hairpin too.
