Melandri suffers knee bruising after crash

Marco Melandri missed a large part of the second free practice session at Estoril as a result of an early crash. The Italian rider hit the floor strongly on his initial laps, with his left knee taking the brunt of the blow. He was immediately taken to the Clinica Mobile to undergo an assessment.

Unable to return to the track, Melandri should hopefully participate in tomorrow's sessions despite heavy bruising on the joint. Doctor Claudio Costa and the official circuit doctor spoke to motogp.com about Melandri's condition as he left for hospital.
