Jorge Martin began his recovery after undergoing surgery the last week in Barcelona. The Spanish rider suffered one of the most spectacular accidents in recent years and suffered multiple fractures. However, now the telemetry data that reveal the magnitude of the impact was known. Martín ran a serious risk in Portugal.
Alpinestar, a brand that gives the pilots all the protections for the different races, revealed the tremendous data released by the sensors of the pilot’s diver’s Pramac. There, the telemetry confirmed that Martín’s life was at serious risk, due to the very strong impact. According to these data, the accident was one of the hardest in recent years.
The data showed that Martín endured a total of 5.2 seconds rolling at full speed. According to Alpinestar data, the longest previously recorded time was the accident he suffered Marc Márquez on Sherry a year ago and sidelined it from the tracks: 3.5 seconds. This increases the security improvements that have been implemented over the years in MotoGP.
Despite the fact that Martín was in the air for a long time, the impact against the ground at the Portugal circuit was much harder. The lightest impact, according to telemetry, was 20G of force, while the strongest was 26G. The magnitude of the accident confirms the reason why Martín suffered so many fractures and had to undergo surgery.
According to the newspaper AS, the previous record of G forces was 29.9, when Loris baz went to the ground in a test in Sepang. In 2019, Marc Márquez experienced 26.2G on the same circuit. Martín has already been operated on and is expected to be present at the Mugello circuit in a few weeks to return to his first season as a MotoGP rider.
