“Valentino suffered a concussion with a suspected loss of consciousness. From a neurological point of view he has recovered very well,” said MotoGP medical director Michele Zasa in a statement issued by Yamaha.
“He was taken to hospital in Alcaniz to make a further check, in particular a CT scan of the skull that has ruled out any bleeding in the brain.
“As a precaution he will be observed in the coming hours, but there are no special reasons for concern.”
