Mir and Petrucci’s crash in photos: sportsmanship prevails

The incident thankfully saw both riders get straight up onto their feet, as Mir and Petrucci embraced in a fantastic show of sportsmanship. The number 36 tucked the front while up the inside of Petrucci on Lap 3, seeing both of their races end early. Mir’s title defence was over before the Emilia-Romagna GP had begun, but 2020’s king was forced to concede his crown to new king Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) after a disappointing afternoon.
