Honda MotoGP leader Marc Marquez suffered a heavy fall and was taken to hospital on Friday before returning to the track and setting the fastest laps in practice for a Thai Grand Prix that looks set to decide the title.

The Spaniard, 98 points clear of nearest rival Andrea Dovizioso with five races remaining to secure his sixth title, finished the second practice session with the sixth-best time at the Chang international circuit.

Márquez will take the title, his fourth in a row, on Sunday if he has two more points than Dovizioso.

Márquez was fired after losing control of the rear of the bike 10 minutes before the end of the first session and suffered a crash. The Spaniard lay down for a while, having trouble breathing, while his bike was badly damaged.

He was taken to the circuit medical center and then to the hospital in nearby Buriram to be checked before being allowed to continue.

“Fortunately, it’s okay,” Repsol Honda team boss Alberto Puig told reporters. “We went to the hospital and had an MRI and everything seems fine.”

Puig said the pilot had stepped on the outer line of the circuit and that the tyre had probably got a little dirty. When Márquez returned to the track, he was the fastest for a while.

The Spaniard won from pole position in Thailand last year and also set the fastest lap of the race. Dovizioso finished second.
