Marc Marquez crash data from Silverstone MotoGP

AlpineStars have released the crash data gathered from Marc Marquez's leathers. He crashed in the morning warm up at the Silverstone MotoGP dislocating his left shoulder in a 22.55G impact.

As you can see from the pictures, Marc's Repsol Honda came awfully close to Cal Crutchlow's Yamaha and the marshals trying to clear it out the way, as a result Marquez was handed two penalty points, rightfully so as there were waved yellow and oil flags which he claimed to have never seen.

Marquez is becoming a little to dependent on his airbags and some would say it is only a matter of time before he has a career limiting crash, or at least misses a few races from injury. Lets hope that is not the case.
