Italian racer Andrea Dovizioso has been admitted to hospital after experiencing memory loss in the aftermath of a first-turn crash at the British MotoGP after he collided with Fabio Quartararo at Silverstone.

Dovizioso and Fabio Quartararo collided on the first lap of Saturday’s race moments after the green light, with Dovizioso’s Ducati Corse bike catching fire moments later.
