Marc Marquez declared unfit for Indonesian GP

The eight-time World Champion is ruled out of Sunday’s race due to a concussion suffered after his huge Warm Up crash

Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) has been declared unfit for the Pertamina Grand Prix of Indonesia after suffering a concussion in his huge Turn 7 Warm Up crash.

The eight-time World Champion visited a local hospital for further checks after a nasty highside towards the end of the 20-minute Warm Up session on Sunday morning. Marquez has since returned to the Pertamina Mandalika Circuit, but, unfortunately, the number 93 won’t be racing in Indonesia due to the aforementioned concussion he suffered. 

Marquez will now be aiming to be fully fit for the Grand Prix of Argentina in two weeks’ time. 

Dr Angel Charte: “Marc is fine. He had a high energy crash in the Warm Up, which resulted in a head injury. Initially, we examined him here and then referred him to the hospital in Lombok. He underwent several radiological tests, which were negative. In agreement with the rider and the team, and due to the fact that this type of pathology requires a period of observation between 12 and 24 hours, the rider, the team and the MotoGP medical staff have decided to declare him as unfit.”
