Capirossi OK, Gibernau undergoes surgery

Loris Capirossi will take part in the next round of the MotoGP World Championship, while Gibernau will still be recovering following an operation to his collarbone. The Italian rider left Catalunya General Hospital in Barcelona yesterday after remaining on Sunday for observation and has returned to Monte Carlo. Medical checks confirmed that the Italian rider can take part in the next round of the championship.

Sete Gibernau's condition is more complicated. The Spanish rider yesterday underwent a further brain scan to rule out any possible complications for the operation to fix the minor fracture to his left collarbone, scheduled for today morning. Surgeons will replace a plate inserted following an earlier accident with a larger plate. Only after this operation will it be possible to confirm when Gibernau can race again, but he will certainly miss the next round in the Netherlands.
