MotoGP: Marc Marquez is Ruled Unfit for Grand Prix
A concussion he sustained during his huge crash in the Warm Up, has ruled Marc Marquez out of Sunday's race.
The Repsol Honda Team's Marc Marquez will not compete at the Indonesia’s Pertamina Grand Prix post sustaining a concussion as a result of crash during Turn 7 Warm Up.
After suffering a nasty highside near the conclusion of Sunday's Warm Up, Marquez, who has been a World Champion eight times, went to a local hospital where further assessments were conducted. Although Marc is back to the Circuit post tests, still he won't take part in the race in Indonesia because of the concussion.
Number 93 will now try to be perfectly fit for the Argentina Grand Prix, which takes place in two weeks.
Statement by Dr. Charte - “He is fine. During the Warm Up session, Marc experienced a high-speed crash that caused a head injury. We first assessed him here before referring to the Lombok hospital. Multiple radiological tests were performed, and none were positive. Since such pathology requires observation for an extended period of time, the rider, the team and MotoGP medical staff have agreed to rule him out of the sunday’s race declaring him unfit."
