Buriram, EN runganSport — Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider, Bradley Smith was right behind Ducati Team rider Jorge Lorenzo when the Spaniard experienced a high-side in the Thailand MotoGP Free Practice 2 session.
On-board recordings showed that Lorenzo had a technical problem, with the engine suddenly dead, then the rear tire locked, causing Lorenzo to be thrown from his motorbike at the Turn 3 of the Buriram circuit.
Smith tried to tell carefully the incident that befell Lorenzo, according to Smith the incident looks ‘strange’.
“Obviously I don’t really know what happened. It seems a bit strange where it happened and what happened,” said the Briton told Crash.
“I think Ducati will know more than me, but what I see is very strange and of course the accident is terrible.
“I think the fluid on the track was after Lorenzo fell, the bike was reversed, but until then I didn’t think there was a problem with the track,” Smith said.
Lorenzo was actually still in an injury condition before the accident in Thailand and now he is back in an accident. (DN/eV)
