The Spaniard was running second when he was tagged by Kenan Sofuoglu and sent into a violent accident, during which Sofuoglu's bike clipped Simon as they went into the gravel.

After an initial examination at the circuit's medical centre, the Aspar rider is set to be transferred to a Madrid hospital for surgery.
