Thankfully no one was seriously injured in this wicked crash sequence.

Not an expert, but at 1/4 speed, it looks like something caught the front wheel on the first bike to go down.  You see a skid mark on the track AS the bike launches into a somersault.  Canít see what it was, though.

Morbideli's front tire touching Zarco's rear tire? That cause Frankie's bike to somersault and Johan's to mini high-side throwing him off, and carrying on to the air fence. Simon Crafar thinks the slip stream effect pulled the Yamaha along and he couldn't get it stopped in time to not hit the Ducati. Both bikes telemetry shows very late braking for the corner and of course both out wide right. Frankie being out there to avoid Johan cutting in front too close for comfort.

This will be analyzed for a long time. And race direction to interview both Thursday (after Zarco has surgery on his wrist/hand Wednesday).

I could not fathom the speed and distance the bikes traveled after the crash (tells just how fast they were going)
