Over at Honda, reigning World Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) suffered a crash at Turn 9. Thankfully he was unhurt but at the end of Day 1, the number 93 admitted he’s suffering more here with his shoulder than he was at the Sepang Test. Honda, in general, seem to be struggling slightly in Qatar, Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) also crashed, Turn 2 the corner with the British rider heading to the medical centre afterwards. This ultimately ended Crutchlow’s day, the number 35 suffering significant swelling to his forearm which caused him to be unable to move his fingers immediately after the crash. He and the team decided it was best to not ride again on Sunday, hopefully Crutchlow will be on track on Monday for the final day of testing.
