ET: 15:20 – After undergoing further medical examinations, there are no suspected fractures. Declared fit, but will still have further checks.

ET: 15:15 – Lorenzo is transferred to hospital via ambulance.

ET: 14:45 - Ducati Sporting Director Paulo Ciabatti then speaks to Crafar: “I don’t know (what happened). I heard the same. The Italian tv was replaying the sound of the onboard and it sounded like something strange has happened. As soon as the bike is back in the garage we’ll download the data and find out what happened. For now I cannot say but I hope there’s no further injury. It was a very nasty crash and we hope that it didn’t further his injury.”

ET: 14:40 – motogp.com pitlane reporter Simon Crafar tells us Bradley Smith (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing), who was right behind Lorenzo’s crash, thinks that something went wrong with the Ducati because GP bikes shouldn't react like that. The engine braking system doesn’t allow it. Smith also says he didn’t see anything on the track but did slow down when he saw it going wrong. He said the bike either locked up or there was something on the track.

ET: 14:35 – Red Flags shown after Xavier Simeon (Reale Avintia Racing) crashes at the same corner, with debris and possible fluid on track.
