Lorenzo elects to continue focusing on his recovery and will return for the British GP on August 25.
After suffering fractures to his T6 and T8 vertebrae during the Dutch GP, Jorge Lorenzo has elected to continue focusing on his recovery and will return for the British GP on August 25.
Lorenzo will miss both the Czech and Austrian rounds to continue his recovery and avoid any further risk of injury. Having spent the summer break working on his recovery, Lorenzo’s condition has improved but he is still in some pain and his movement on a bike remains restricted.
Stefan Bradl will again fly in Repsol Honda Team colours in Lorenzos place. The German had been scheduled to wildcard at the Czech GP, but will instead fill in for Lorenzo as he did at the Sachsenring.
