MotoGP: Valentino Rossi avoids potentially lethal accident at Austrian Grand Prix

Seven-time MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi was almost involved in a potentially lethal accident at the Austrian Grand Prix, as a stray bike flew past him at incredible speed following a crash.

Franco Morbidelli and Johann Zarco collided in the run-up to turn 3 at the Red Bull Ring at high speed, and both drivers' bikes continued to travel after their drivers had fallen off.

The stray bikes flew in between Rossi and Maverick Viñales, with the red flag being waved immediately after.

With the momentum of the crashed bikes, it very likely would have been a lethal accident should one of them have hit either Rossi or Viñales.

Morbidelli and Zarco are both conscious and in the medical centre at the Red Bull Ring.

Back in the garage after the red flag was waved, Rossi was visibly shaken as he realised how much of a close shave it was.

There was a huge shunt earlier today in Moto2 as well as Enea Bastianini fell and another driver flew over the stranded bike.
