Franco Morbidelli he continues to recover from the injury to his knee, for which he underwent surgery a few weeks ago and forced him to not be present on the last date of the championship of MotoGP. Everything seemed to indicate that the Italian would be back when the calendar returns to normal, on August 8 in Austria. However, everything seems to indicate that this will not be the case.
Morbidelli already had an injury for a few months. However, in the French Grand Prix, on Le mans, the Italian suffered a hard fall both on Saturday and Sunday, which made the pain in that part return. This is why both he and the team make the decision to operate on the injury and return to competition as quickly as possible.
In the last race, in the Netherlands Grand Prix, Morbidelli was replaced by Garrett gerlloff, driver of the championship of Superbikes from Yamaha. Gerlloff’s result was not the best, but it was to be expected due to the little run-in he had on a motorcycle like the one in the Petronas, which also has older components than the rest of the competitors.
Although everything seemed to be going well for Morbidelli, this Wednesday it was confirmed that the Italian will not be present in the next two races. These will be disputed in the Red bull ring from Austria. The head of the team Yamaha petronas assured that ‘Morbido’ will be back at the Misano circuit, for the San Marino Grand Prix of MotoGP.
“Franco is recovering well from his knee operation. We want to make sure it is 100% before it returns. I do not think I will run to Misano again, although I wish it were sooner. It is a circuit that he likes, that he knows well and that should be a good place to see his return. We all continue to wish him the best in his recovery and that he only come back when he feels fit, ”he told Motorsport.com.
