Sachsenring 2015 Morbidelli Rabat crashWith Rabat having the lead into the final corner, the possibility of a first Moto2 podium was too much for Morbidelli, who tried to stuff it up the inside. He lost the front and crashed, sliding into Rabat. That’s Tito with his foot in the air. Morbidelli is still ‘riding’ his bike, which is underneath Rabat’s.

Sachsenring 2015 Morbidelli Rabat crashMorbidelli was fine, but Rabat sustained a cracked rib and worried that he’d re-injured the broken collarbone he’d sustained not long before in training crash at the Almeria circuit. The titanium plate over his mending collarbone did not need attention. Morbidelli gained valuable experience.
