Data from Jorge Martin’s Portimao horror crash

Pramac Racing’s Jorge Martin is now on the road to recovery after undergoing three separate surgeries in Barcelona. The MotoGP™ rookie suffered multiple fractures during FP3 at the Grand Prix of Portugal after folding the front-end of his Ducati on the run down to Turn 7. The MotoGP™ rookie got caught up with his Pramac Ducati in a horrible-looking crash at Portimao during FP3. It makes it one of the longest crashes in recent memory, with Marc Marquez’s (Repsol Honda Team) crash at the Spanish Grand Prix in 2020 lasting 3.5 seconds by comparison. Again, by comparison, the largest force recorded by Alpinestars was 29.9G in Loris Baz’s crash at Sepang Test in 2016. The largest in recent years was Marquez’s highside during Q2 at the Malaysian Grand Prix in 2019, with 26.27G recorded on that day.
