Berita seputar terbakarnya motor Alex Rins itu simpang siur. Ada yang ngomong motornya rusak nggak bisa diperbaiki, gambarnya paling ekstrem:
A fire has engulfed one of Alex Rins’ Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP bikes on Thursday during preparations for this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit, destroying much of the machine.
The Suzuki bike burst into flames as team members completed a start-up on Thursday afternoon. It’s believed the cause of the fire was fuel overflow spraying onto the bikes hot exhaust.
Team members and marshals quickly extinguished the flames, but not before severe damage had been caused, with much of the bike likely irreparable.

MotoGP: Suzuki bike destroyed in pit lane fire
Eventually extinguished by the crew, the bike was severely damaged in the blaze. However, while it should make for a busy night for his mechanics as they start the long process of building a new bike, it shouldn’t affect the Spaniard’s weekend too much. Carrying enough spare parts to rebuild multiple machines over the weekend, Suzuki’s only concern will be if there is damage to the engine

Rins’ bike escapes major damage in Suzuki pit fire
One of Alex Rins’ Suzuki MotoGP bikes has been repaired ready for use in Friday practice after sustaining damage in a small pitlane fire at Sepang. The fire was understood to have been caused by a fuel leak, caused by an injector not being attached properly, but was quickly brought under control before it could do any substantial damage to the GSX-RR. Rins will therefore have two bikes at his disposal as per normal for Friday practice at Sepang.
Sementara itu di twitter MotoGP yang diperlihatkan cuma api kecil:
Lihat apinya sih besar. Dari usaha penyelenggara untuk mencoba menutupi nutupi besarnya api maka di sesi latihan nanti dipastikan akan ada dua motor, nggak perduli rusaknya parah atau tidak. Pasti diusahakan walau misal harus nyomot dari motor tahun depan sekalipun.
Jadi walau misal benar berita motornya hancur total, nanti di saat balapan pasti akan ada saja motor cadangan. Entah itu bakal melanggar aturan karantina atau tidak, sepertinya yang penting nggak terkesan motornya nggak aman.
