In 1992, Doohan had a severe crash that put him out of serious competition for nearly two years. It required the retrofitting of his bike as he no longer had decent utilization of his body parts. When his health returned, he concluded first of second at just about every race on the circuit from 1994 to 1998. Yet, he crashed again in 1999 and his previously injured leg was seriously damaged again. He chose to retire but continued to work as an advisor for Honda until 2004. In April 1998, he got the opportunity to test a Formula One race car, the Williams FW19, in the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain. He found it difficult to drive the car and crashed against a guard rail.
