Pedro Acosta Reflects on Le Mans Crash: Prioritizing Rivals’ Race Over Risky Maneuver

Pedro Acosta reflects on Le Mans incident: "I aimed to avoid ruining another rider's race"

Pedro Acosta acknowledges he was concerned about causing a crash with another competitor while attempting a daring maneuver at the French MotoGP.

Pedro Acosta appeared to be a strong contender for a podium position in the initial phases of the French MotoGP, but he ended up crashing at turn seven.

In 2024, Acosta's first significant error occurred while he was the top KTM rider, demonstrating considerable promise at that moment.

Acosta's performance remains remarkable, and even with the accident, it appears the young Spaniard is on track to secure a victory in the near future.

The current Moto2 world champion crashed following an aggressive maneuver on Fabio Di Giannantonio, having attempted the pass from a significant distance before losing control at the front.

Just inches from colliding with both Di Giannantonio and Aleix Espargaro, who were in front entering the right turn, Acosta lost control and slid off, narrowly avoiding what could have been a fortunate avoidance of an accident for all three participants.

"Actually, we kicked things off pretty well," Acosta started. "We disconnected everything at the perfect time. Our pace was quite rapid.

"Primarily, in front of me, Diggia and Aleix were engaged in a contest around Turn 7, and as they approached Turn 8, they might have been too far to the right and ended up braking a bit early to make a left turn."

Talking about his crash that led to his first non-completion of a race this season, Acosta stated: "Upon noticing their reduced pace, they began to slow down, and it was precisely then that I was approaching at a high speed.

"In the final moments, my aim wasn’t to collide with Aleix and ruin his race, so I attempted to brake and subsequently, the front wheel locked up."
