Marquez survives a serious accident at the Dutch Grand Prix
Honda rider and six-times world champion Marc Marquez, who missed the entirety of last season after sustaining an injury in the opening race, has escaped a serious accident during MotoGP’s Dutch Grand Prix practice. The Spaniard won in Germany at the weekend for his first victory since returning from an arm injury last year. Marquez fell at Turn 10 in the second period of the day, but the team said he was not seriously injured. “I was lucky to survive this accident and I’m in good overall shape,” Marquez said. “This type of accident can cause serious injuries. “It hurts but I didn’t get hurt. It was a strange accident because I don’t think I went over speed and did the same as I did in the morning. “In this corner we rely a lot on the traction control technology but it didn’t work as it should… I slipped and fell at the end.” Marquez said he wanted to find out the causes of the accident to restore confidence on Saturday.
