Below are the words of the Italian company: “After Sunday’s MotoGP race in Barcelona, the Alpinestars Racing Development team has launched an investigation into the integrity of Fabio Quartararo’s racing suit. After an initial post-race analysis carried out in the Alpinestars Racing Development truck located in the MotoGP paddock, the team found that the suit was in normal working condition, with all zippers and closures in perfect working order. In addition, all components of the suit, including the Tech-Air airbag system, were intact and fully functional. This is only a first evaluation, which will be further investigated once the suit is in Alpinestars laboratory at Alpinestars headquarters, to conduct all the tests and analyzes to better understand the cause of what happened. The Tech-Air Airbag System did not open during the race, it worked as expected, as there was no crash situation ”.
