Have I ruined my carbon handlebar?

Hi everyone.
I noticed that my carbon handlebar is scratched.
It did not have any impact or accident, it just got scratched with another bike when transporting it a car rack.

When I pass my finger, I don't feel anything (I can't touch the fibers). It seems only an external layer got damaged.

So, is this dangerous or only a cosmetic damage?

This is a bontrager carbon flat handlebar.

Looks like you've only scratched the clearcoat, which is not structural.

You should be fine

PS-a little clear nail polish will seal it up again
