MotoGP, EXCLUSIVE: Photos of Marquez's fall during Sepang qualifications

Marc's high-side sequence at Turn 2 trying to follow Quartararo


Marc Marquez takes a big high-side during Sepang GP qualifications. Honda's rider was trying to take advantage of Quartararo's slipstream to improve his time. After passing Petrucci at the first corner, he forced his change of direction at the second corner, lost control of his bike, and crashed-out.

Marquez wasn't hurt in the fall but will be forced to start from an 11th position tomorrow. This was his worst qualifying performance since he ended up 13th at Mugello in 2015.
