Blame the bike? Marc Marquez shouldered most of the responsibility for having already broken his own crash record this year, but allowed that this year’s Honda might be particularly crash-prone, compared with its rivals.
“Of course I don’t want to crash, but it is a bit my style, and I always like to find the limit in practice,” he said, after two more crashes so far this weekend brought his season total to 19, two more than his personal record of 17 last leason.
“I think there is also something on our bike – it is more unstable. I think it is harder to crash on the Yamaha or the Ducati.”
Only the misfortunate Aprilia rider Sam Lowes had crashed more often, with four more this weekend bringing his season total to 22.
