"It was a shame; even before the crash it was a great race," said the Suzuki rider.

"It was difficult for the tyres to warm up, it was difficult but we handled it well, I gained several positions and we moved forward.

"[Danilo] Petrucci escaped and when Miller's engine broke, I went forward and I was catching Petrux, [which is] just when I fell.

"I was riding well, braking on the spot, it was totally unexpected."
