After the crash suffered on Monday at the Circuito de Jerez, Julian Simon was taken to a Barcelona medical facility yesterday to undergo analysis on his left shoulder. The Spaniard suffered a dislocation as a result of the tumble, and did not reappear for day 2 of quarter litre testing.

After initial examination at the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus, Dr Xavier Mir diagnosed Simon with a dislocated scapula, although the extent of the injury will become apparent only after an ultrasound procedure.

Regardless of the severity, the Repsol Honda rider will continue to have his shoulder fixed in position until next week before starting rehabilitation, and will miss the Official Test in Qatar.
