The six-time champion walked away from a savage rollover accident in Indonesia on Sunday without a fracture, but not without injury.

The Spanish rider was warming up for the Indonesia Grand Prix at the wet Mandalika International Street circuit when he lost control of his bike and entered into a ‘high side’ crash that sent him flying through the air as his Honda raced down the track alongside him. .

He hit his head on landing which caused a concussion and diplopia, or double vision, which kept him out of the race but cleared up before returning on his return to Spain to recover.

The injury and symptoms were similar to those he suffered after an accident in Portugal last November.

“It seems like I’m experiencing deja vu,” Marquez said on Twitter. “During the trip back to Spain, I started having discomfort with my vision and we decided to visit Dr. Sanchez Dalmau, who confirmed that I had a new episode of diplopia.”

Further tests confirmed he had no other head injuries, but his status for the April 3 Argentina Grand Prix remains unclear.
