Quartararo penalised for Espargaro clash

After his run-in with Espargaro, it hardly got any better for the Yamaha rider. Having dropped off the lead lap following a visit to pit lane, De Strubben bit him again when he highsided in brutal fashion on his 12th lap of the Grand Prix. That was the end of Quartararo’s race, before he went to the medical centre for a check-up and x-ray due to pain in his left shoulder. There, he was cleared of any fractures and declared fit.
