Usually when a bike crashes a rider panics, but not Marc Marquez. The MotoGP World Championship rider went down in Q2 at the Dutch Grand Prix, but he saw a scooter with a key in it and he decided to finish the race with it.

The TT Circuit Assen at the Dutch GP was wet and in a bad condition due to rain and Marquez made a mistake and crashed at turn eight.

He used his presence of mind and sprinted to the service road where he found a scooter with a key in it and took off toward his garage stall.

Not only did he finish the race, the Spaniard got the fourth place with an impressive timing.

The scooter, according to motogp.com, belonged to a photographer. Marquez and the photographer had an exchange and the photographer let him use his scooter.

“ I made a mistake in qualifying and crashed on the second lap. The marshals were a bit far away, and I saw a scooter with a key in it and nobody around. When I took it, I saw that it belonged to a photographer, but he let me go.

“I wanted to get back to the pit as soon as possible, so honestly I would’ve taken it even if he said no!,” Marquez told the MotoGP website.

“Thanks to the great work done by the team, I was able to get back out on track for two laps and we managed to finish fourth. The important thing is that I feel comfortable in the dry, not superior to the others but at ease enough to fight. In case of rain, it will be kind of a lottery, as always.”
