The Grand Prix of The Americas ended prematurely for Marc Márquez, who crashed out of the race at Turn 12 of Lap 9, when leading the contest by more than 3 seconds.
Jorge Lorenzo is also unable to complete the race, with a technical problem stopping his bike on Lap 11.
Three rounds into the season, Márquez is fourth in the MotoGP World Championship standings, nine points behind series leader Andrea Dovizioso.
“It’s different to make a mistake fighting for fifth and fighting for the win, the level is there.”
