The 19-year-old young pilot Jason Dupasquier did not survive the injuries caused by the terrible accident he suffered during qualifying for the Moto 3 Italian GP. The Swiss had undergone an operation on Saturday night.
“After the serious accident during the Moto3 Q2 of the Italian Grand Prix, we announce with great sadness the death of Moto3 rider Jason Dupasquier”, said the organization of the Moto GP World Championship after the conclusion of the race.
Dupasquier had been rushed by helicopter to Careggi Hospital from Florence for the FIM medical services, who treated him immediately on the track. The Prüstel man entered surgery for a hemopneumothorax in the lung.
The statement explained that “Dupasquier was involved in an incident with several drivers between turns 9 and 10, that forced to show red flag from then on. The FIM medical intervention vehicles arrived at the scene immediately and the Swiss pilot was treated on the track before being transferred by medical helicopter, in stable condition, to the Careggi Hospital in Florence”.
“Despite the efforts of the circuit medical staff and all those who subsequently treated the Swiss rider, the hospital has announced that Dupasquier has regrettably succumbed to his injuries,” continued the note.
“The FIM (International Motorcycle Federation), WRITTEN BY (International Association of Competition Teams), MSMA (International Association of Builders) and Dorna Sports, organizer of the championship, convey our deepest condolences to Dupasquier’s family, friends, team and loved ones”, it concluded.
The Swiss was the son of Phillipe Dupasquier, a former motocross rider and a native of the Swiss town of Bulle, who should have turned 20 on September 7, but a very serious accident at turn nine of the Mugello circuit took his life too soon.
Dupasquier made his world championship debut in one of the most difficult seasons in the history of motorcycling, that of 2020, when after the first appointment at the Qatar Grand Prix, the pandemic was declared worldwide and the championship could not be “reactivated” until July.
In his first World Cup campaign, the Swiss rider could only accumulate experience without scoring a single point.
The situation, in season 2021 it improved notably For this young driver who with five races contested occupied the tenth position of the championship, he had already shown very “good manners” in some of the great prizes, scoring in all of them and with a seventh position as the best result in the Jerez race of the Border.
A brain swelling and severe chest trauma they have crossed paths with this young driver from the Prüstel team. Arrabbiata 2, the second of two curves linked with the same name and place of the very serious accident of the Swiss Dupasquier, has claimed its first fatality.
