Everyone in the Repsol Honda box held their breath, while Márquez got up with his head down and touching his injured arm, although in the end it was less serious than it seemed.

The relief of seeing Márquez going into the box on his own feet was immediately apparent. However, and for rule out possible parallel injuries, he went immediately to the medical center of the Cadiz track accompanied by the doctor Angel Chartre, MotoGP medical officer, where he was checked. To show that everything had been scared, it was Márquez himself who took the doctor on the scooter.

Once that check-up had passed, any serious injury and only a concussion from the blow were ruled out.

Hunted by DAZN as soon as he left to see the doctors, he has reassured everyone: “Everything is fine, just a scare.” However, to rule out any type of ailment or complication in their injury, they have preferred evacuate him to the Jerez hospital for a control CT scan. “He has a large cervical and back contusion, and I prefer to do a follow-up test,” Dr. Chartre wrote.

After returning from the hospital, before FP4, Márquez was declared fit and will play the rest of the weekend as normal. In that same FP4, his partner Pol Espargaro he also suffered a fall at the same point.

Fortunately for him, despite the violence of the coup, he did not have major problems, apart from the fright.
