Hard fall of Lorenzo in a FP1 dominated by Quartararo

The Mallorcan, who was premiering the fairing on the Honda, got up in a daze and was taken by ambulance to the circuit clinic.


The problems grow for Jorge Lorenzo. The Mallorcan has fallen hard five minutes after the end of the FP1 of the Dutch GP that has dominated Quartararo, the pilot who made his debut on the MotoGP podium in the previous event, with a good second put in Catalonia, after Márquez.

Returning to the Honda, the fall has been forceful, in the curve 7, which is reached around 200 kilometers per hour before starting to reduce and remove marches. The five-time champion has lost the front and has wallowed in the escape, giving at least four turns on himself and hitting his body on the gravel. He has gotten up on his own feet, but has been seen dazed, like a newly knocked boxer, and had to be taken by ambulance to the circuit clinic.

It has been his sixth fall so far this season, so many as he suffered throughout the last year, the second and last with Ducati, and this Assen is preceded by two very painful in Montmeló. The one of the race of Sunday hurt to him in the soul, to fall in the second return and to ruin the races of Dovizioso, Maverick and Rossi, to which it involuntarily threw. And the second is the test on the Monday after the race, very cumbersome and the one that made him reach something still to Assen, especially in the area of the rib fissured in Qatar and with discomfort in the right shoulder. We will have to be attentive to their medical part.

Others who also fell with better luck and better result in the time table, because the Spaniard has finished 18th, were Aleix, Nakagami and Petrucci, who began to lose control of the Ducati at 208 per hour and, despite throwing him through the air in turn 14, nothing was done, he was able to resume the session and finished the third FP1, at 0.260 of the aforementioned Quartararo and also behind Maverick, which has started second at only 77 thousandths of the head.

Behind the Italian, and already half a second behind the first, Rins, who continued to close the provisional top 10 with direct access to Q2 Nakagami, Márquez, Crutchlow, Abraham, Pol and Miller. More back, Rossi 12th, Dovizioso 13th, Aleix 14th, Rabat 15th and Mir 16º.
