Alex Rins’ weekend is already over. The Spaniard suffered a violent crash in the final minutes of Q2 at Turn 11 where he broke his right shoulder which will force him to miss the first race of the season. A real trouble as the next race will be in just 7 days and it is going to be hard for Rins to be there.
Suzuki rider had to face Q1 before going to Q2 and he managed to obtain a spot without any problem, but during the final moments of the second session of qualifying he pushed a bit too much over the limit.
Rins fell down at high speed at Turn 11, ending on the gravel just a few moments later than Jack Miller, but the Spaniard had a more violent crash and when he got up it was clear that he had some pain on his shoulder.
Alex was immediately taken to the medical center where he was diagnosed a luxated shoulder, successfully became a broken one, with a fracture at humerus’ head as well. Rins has been declared UNFIT to race tomorrow and will have to make a magnetic resonance in the evening.
Surely the Spaniard will try to make the race next week at Jerez, but only the results of the exam could tell if it is going to be a possible chance for him. Not the ideal start of the season, a different one with a lot of consecutive race with Rins who could miss a lot of Grands prix in the worse scenario possible.
