Alex Marquez suffers small metatarsal fracture

LCR Honda Castrol rider crashed heavily at Turn 9 on Day 4 at the Qatar Test, the Spaniard is in hospital for mandatory checks

After a big highside on the exit of Turn 9 during Day 4’s action at the Official MotoGP™ Qatar Test, Alex Marquez (LCR Honda Castrol) has suffered a small fracture to the fourth metatarsal bone in his right foot.

The double World Champion was given a lift back to his box by Tech3 KTM Factory Racing’s Iker Lecuona, and has since headed to the hospital for mandatory checks after initially visiting the circuit medical centre.

It remains to be seen whether Marquez will be forced to sit out the final day of pre-season testing on Friday, and if so, we hope that the number 73 will be fit to race at the opening round of 2021 at the end of the month.
