Tuesday, 12 June 2012

The final decision to race on legendary Silverstone circuit will be done in Britain after consultation with doctors.

"I´m leaving to Silverstone on Wednesday after a medical examination. We´ll try to put out the splint and we´ll see if the movements with the hand will be painful and if the cut fingers won´t bleed again. I really would like to race at Silverstone. We need to collect another points in championship and I´ll do everything to be at the track. On the other side it would be irresponsible to race at all costs, risking that the healing will take longer. There´s a series of four races starting by Assen and it would be really catastrophe to lose these races."
