“I want to apologise to Yamaha because at the end everything was about frustration, also many nerves. I rode the bike differently in the last laps,” he further said.
“It was a big explosion of emotion, frustration.
“I have a warrior soul. I want to be there on the track, fighting every lap. It wasn’t like that, but anyway, it is a decision that I respect from Yamaha. I am still a rider for Yamaha.”
