Alex Rins admitted to hospital in Jerez after a bad accident

Rins was driving through the fast right turn at Turn 11 towards the end of the lap in Jerez in the closing stages of Q2 when he lost the front of his bike and had to look.

Hurled into the gravel at high speed, Rins fell and rolled violently.

A Suzuki spokesman confirmed he was hospitalized for further examinations after initial tests were conducted at the county’s Clinica Mobile.

“Due to the crash he had at the end of the second quarter and the subsequent investigation at Clinica Mobile, Alex Rins is now being taken to Jerez hospital for further tests, including an MRI scan of his right shoulder,” said a brief Explanation.

Rins’ participation in the Spanish Grand Prix for Sunday’s season opener is questionable, with Suzuki likely to wait until morning before making a decision.

The Spaniard has had a difficult day in Jerez after failing to take direct Q2 positions at the end of FP3.

He also had a clash with Marc Marquez that session trying to improve his final flying lap, despite the Honda rider escaping a penalty after presenting evidence that he was due to the yellow flags for the Tech3’s Iker crash Lecuona slowed down at Turn 2.

Despite surviving the first part of qualifying, Rins suffered a low-speed crash on Turn 2 right at the end of the session.

He qualified his Suzuki from ninth place on the grid.
