The race of the Aragon GP of the 2022 MotoGP proved disastrous for the world leader Fabio Quartararo who ended up on the ground on the first lap due to a clash with Marquez and then the victim of a second accident, not captured by the cameras, while returning to the pits.
Sunday to forget for the leader of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship Fabio Quartararo in Aragon. The unfortunate clash on the first lap with Marc Marquez (who, having lost the rear, had to turn off the gas, making the collision by the reigning world champion inevitable) in the top-class race on the Spanish circuit, it actually cost him several chest abrasions (in falling the suit opened and the Yamaha Frenchman then rubbed his chest directly on the asphalt) and also almost all the advantage he had in the world rankings compared to the most immediate pursuers Pecco Bagnaia (2nd at the finish line after losing the duel for the victory with Enea Bastianini) e Aleix Espargaro (3rd at the checkered flag) who are now only 10 and 17 points behind respectively when there are still five races left at the end of the season.
A black Sunday therefore for the transalpine centaur who, as if that were not enough, in Aragon he was also the protagonist of another unfortunate episode, which escaped the cameras, which sounds like a hoax. After the impact with the Honda of Marc Marquez who put an end to his race causing him to end up on the ground in fact in pain Fabio Quartararo had a second accident while returning to the box aboard a scooter driven by a marshal.
The scooter on which the two were traveling violently hit another scooter used by marshalls for travel around the circuit. Luckily neither the reigning world champion nor the commissioner suffered any physical consequences from this impact with the Yamaha rider who, after the checks made in the Aragon medical center, reassured everyone about his condition..
To reveal what can be considered a real joke for him, was the same Fabio Quartararo who after the race of the Aragon GP revealed: “Today I had two accidents in two minutes, because the Marshall who was driving the scooter to take me back to the pits violently hit another scooter – said the 23 year old from Nice visibly in pain –. Fortunately I hadn’t taken off my helmet. In the end, however, all the problems I have are due to the fall in the race, as the suit has opened and this has resulted in abrasions on the body.“added the Frenchman, showing the evident bruises on his chest.CopyAMP code
