Lorenzo Savadori tried it: yesterday he gritted his teeth despite the ankle pain after the Styrian GP, but had to throw in the towel. The Aprilia rider had to admit that his physical condition does not allow him to compete in MotoGP and has decided to retire from the Silverstone Grand Prix.
Lorenzo broke his right ankle at the Styrian GP and returned for the first time at the RS-GP yesterday. He had managed to drive 11 laps in FP1 and 7 in FP2. “I can’t drive normally. We’ll see what I have to do, ”he had told us. Unfortunately, his conditions don’t allow him to drive normally and the English course certainly doesn’t help, with its quick changes of direction where you have to really press the running boards.
Savadori will now try to regain his best physical shape for the Aragon GP scheduled for two weeks.
