The one with Repsol Honda It came out through the ears on the fast left-hand corner that gives way to the last turn of the circuit and it looks like it has broken and that it has fallen due to a cold tire (it was its first lap with new rubber) or due to electronics failure. The one from Granollers has remained lying on the gravel of the escape route and has been evacuated from it on a stretcher, to reach the ambulance that has taken him directly to the circuit’s medical center, where he was conscious, but with gestures of pain.

While waiting for the diagnosis to be confirmed, the Repsol Honda runs out of riders on the asphalt of Ricardo Tormo, because Marc Márquez has dropped out due to double vision problems And, unlike Portimao, he has not been replaced here by the gold wing tester, Stefan Bradl. Also, if the injury to Polyccio He drops from the Honda in the remainder of the GP, something that could happen, the important training sessions next week, on Thursday and Friday at the Ángel Nieto in Jerez, are very committed, with which the 2022 preseason will start.

This is what the main Repsol Honda team said in Dazn: “He has hit his ribs hard and we don’t know if on his wrist. They are going to take him to Valencia for a check-up. He is in a lot of pain and fully conscious. It is necessary to do the corresponding check-up, but the head is fine, although with a lot of pain “.

And Dr. Ángel Charte has said: “Pol has had a high side, a high energy accident. He has arrived initially confused and with a lot of chest pain, especially in the right area. The neurological examination is absolutely normal. At the thoracic level it is true that there may be some type of injury at the costal level. The rest of the examination, both abdominal, thoracic, and cardiac is normal, but we sent him to the October 9 Hospital to perform the scans that we must do. He has a small injury on his right wrist that we have not evidenced radiologically either, but there we will complete the study. I am very calm. “
