Rabat reveals double fracture in left foot

Rabat reveals double fracture in left foot

Tito Rabat and his Tuenti HP 40 team have revealed that the Spanish rider contested Sunday’s German Grand Prix with a double fracture to his left foot.

The Jerez winner suffered a Sachsenring crash during practice on Saturday morning, resulting in great pain for both qualifying and the race. However, he was able to fight back from 23rd on the grid to 14th in the Grand Prix, thus scoring two points.

On Monday morning, Rabat visited the Quiron Dexeus University Hospital in Barcelona where Doctors Xavier Mir and Angel Charte diagnosed the fracture.

“In Germany they said I only had a torn ligament, but it hurt like hell and was really hard to deal with during the race,” Rabat explains.

“I went to see Doctors Mir and Charte and they located the double fracture and told me I would need ten days to recuperate from it. Luckily this is the first day of the holiday period and I have a month ahead of me, so now it’s a waiting game in order to recover and regroup at Indianapolis, where I had my first podium in Moto2 (in 2011).

Rabat is left with a month to recover, as neither Moto2™ nor the Moto3™ class compete at Laguna Seca, which is staging its MotoGP™ race this weekend.
