Márquez passed fit to race at Silverstone
1 September 2013 – Marc Márquez has been passed fit to take part in this afternoon's British Grand Prix at Silverstone, despite suffering a dislocated shoulder sustained during the warm-up.
Márquez had been taken to the medical centre following the morning crash, with doctors assessing the damage. Despite earlier doubts about his ability to participate, the Repsol Honda rider has now been given the green light, after staff were able to put his shoulder back into place in time for him to take up his pole position grid-slot.
Reigning World Champion Jorge Lorenzo and home favourite Cal Crutchlow, who also tumbled in the warm-up session, will join Márquez on the front row.
The British Grand Prix gets underway at 1.00pm local time (GMT +1)
