Marc Marquez and Fabio Quartararo crash at Silverstone

What’s going on in Silverstone? Several well-known motorbike drivers already go down in the free practice sessions. The most prominent of them all is Marc Marquez (Sp), eight-time world champion from Spain. At 270 km / h on the way, he loses the front wheel when approaching a curve – sparks fly, Marquez rushes over the asphalt and the grass before he finally comes to a standstill.

After all: he remains unharmed. Nevertheless, he drives to the hospital. Why? “I got a little mess in my eye. As a result, my eye was watering all the time in the second training session. ” The view was not impaired, but he felt sand in his eye. “That’s why everything was cleaned in the hospital.”
