This is going to hurt… a lot.. Marquez in Thailand, FP1. Outchy time about to be realised at Turn 7.

It’s an incredible bit of data gathered by the tech team at Alpinestars and shows just how strong the firm’s airbag suit is in reducing injury (Marquez didn’t receive one fracture during the gut-wrenching highside and impact in the Free Practice 1 session fall on Friday). And it certainly looks like the kit he was wearing meant that Marc was in better shape for the assault and win on Sunday, handing him his eighth world title.
