Acosta declared unfit following FP3 crash

The Moto3™ World Championship leader is a huge doubt for Sunday's race after suffering an upper back and chest injury on Saturday morning

Red Bull KTM Ajo's Pedro Acosta has been declared unfit for the remainder of Saturday's action following a crash in FP3 at the Motul TT Assen. The Moto3™ World Championship leader was struck by BOE Owlride's Riccardo Rossi after crashing at the Geert Timmer Chicane, with Stefano Nepa (BOE Owlride) and Ryusei Yamanaka (CarXpert PrüstelGP) also involved in the nasty incident.

Following the crash, the Spaniard was taken to the local hospital in Assen for further checks where a thoracic trauma was diagnosed. As a result, the 17-year-old was ruled out for the remainder of the action on Saturday and, therefore, won't take place in Q2. However, Acosta could still be declared fit on Sunday morning and could start the Moto3™ Grand Prix at the TT Circuit Assen from 18th on the grid after not taking part in Q2.

Stay tuned to with further updates on the World Championship leader's condition posted as soon as we have it.
