Despite the incident, Bagnaia emerged from the fifth round of this year's series still leading the championship by a point from Marco Bezzecchi after his fellow Italian took the chequered flag on his Ducati for the Mooney VR46 Racing team.
That has now set up a mouthwatering showdown between the top two on home soil at Mugello on June 9-11.
Bagnaia, however, will be nursing an ankle injury as his team has confirmed that scans undertaken at his home town in Misano have shown up a minor fracture.
But with time on Bagnaia's side between now and the next event, the 26-year-old will ride as he looks to bounce back from what was his second retirement of the season in France.
⚠️ UPDATE. As @PeccoBagnaia was still feeling some pain in his right ankle, after last Sunday's crash in France, he underwent further checks in Misano, which found a small partial talus bone fracture. This minor injury will not prevent his participation in the next Italian GP. pic.twitter.com/ObEWjNBwJ5
