Swiss rider Jason Dupasquier was airlifted to a hospital after a crash during Moto3
qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello on Saturday.
The 19-year-old Dupasquier was involved in an accident with riders Ayumu Sasaki
and Jeremy Alcoba toward the end of the session, which was immediately red-flagged.
Dupasquier first appeared to fall before being hit by his own bike.
Fellow rider Ayumu Sasaki then reportedly hit Dupasquier before Jeremy Alcoba was
also believed to have run over his legs.
The red flag was immediately raised and Dupasquier received treatment on the track
for 30 minutes.
A helicopter then landed and lifted him to a hospital in Florence where his condition
continues to be assessed.
“The FIM medical intervention team in the vehicles arrived immediately on the site of
the accident and after that, he was transferred to the Careggi hospital in
a hemodynamically stable way to the Careggi hospital in Florence and we will wait for
updates from the hospital.
“At the moment we know that for sure he’s in a very serious condition and as I said we are
waiting for updates by them.”
Sasaki and Alcoba walked away from the incident but Dupasquier’s condition is proving
to be hugely concerning.
According to Motorsport, doctors in The Careggi hospital will assess his injuries before
determining whether he will need surgery.
