Airbag safety: analysis of the Quartararo, Dovi crash

One racing leather supplier, Alpinestars, is used by both Quartararo and Dovizioso, and they released data from both of the riders’ impacts.
Rookie sensation Quartararo was the first of the riders to go down, with the Frenchman’s ‘Tech-Air’ system fully deploying 60 milliseconds before the first impact he made with the asphalt.
Airbag systems were made compulsory across all categories at the beginning of the 2018 season and even if it may not always prevent riders from picking up injuries, it – more than likely – saved Quartararo and Dovizioso from further injury.
