Marc Marquez had one of the fastest crashes ever in the MotoGP Championship. Losing control of his Repsol Honda RC213V at 209.9 mph Marquez had to jump away from his race bike, at roughly 170 mph, in order to avoid the rapidly approaching wall barrier.
With the crash lasting 4.25 seconds, it took the airbag’s computer only 0.08 seconds to detect the crash, and another 0.05 seconds to delpoy the airbag. This gave Marquez’s body a 0.03 second margin between airbag deployment and his first impact with the ground.
