Spanish professional Grand Prix motorcycle rider Marc Marquez suffered a dangerous crash in the closing laps of the warm-up session on 20 March at Turn 7 and landed heavily on his left side. Marquez was directly taken to the hospital and the reports revealed that he has suffered a concussion after a violent high-side during the 20-minute session at the speed of 115mph.
The eight-time world champion was subsequently declared unfit for the race and could join the grid in Argentina. Marquez didn’t have a worthy performance throughout the weekend on his RC213V. He also had crashed twice in Q1.
Marquez went off from his bike on the Turn 7 right-hander in the closing moments of the session. Immediately, both the rider and his bike rocketed through the air, with Marquez somersaulting over the bike before landing heavily on his arm. The Spaniard was up to 15-feet in the air when he somersaulted before crashing onto the track. The force from the crash pushed him sliding across the track before eventually halting.

Honda team’s Alberto Puig reacted to the brutal crash while talking to motogp.com where he said, “Marc had these three crashes and we have to try to understand why, because his crash from today was brutal. Honestly speaking we need to analyse. They [Michelin] brought here a different tyre and we have to understand everything, and at this moment it’s difficult.
“Our rider crashed and we want to understand, so I don’t think I can give you any precise info. Finally, he had a massive crash and we decided it was not correct under the circumstance after this concussion in the head to bring him to the track.”
