Aleix Espargaro had a big high-side crash during the warm-up at the 2018 German GP. He sustained some rib injuries which needed immediate medical attention. Hence, he was taken to the Deixeus Quiron Clinic in Barcelona.

Aleix was inspected by Dr. Angel Charte who conducted a thorough checkup and later declared Aleix to be fit enough to be discharged. Aleix was given a prescription of five days off.

The Aprilia rider was awarded a grid penalty at the German GP for obstructing Marc Marquez in practice. Reports tell that this penalty will not be carried over to the next race which will take place at Brno in Czech Republic after the summer break.
