6cero – Mariñelarena will not return in 2014

Following his serious accident in a private Moto2™ test with Tech 3 in France at the end of February and the subsequent rehabilitation process he is undergoing, Spanish rider Alex Mariñelarena has announced that he will not be coming back into Grand Prix racing this season.

In a statement released via his social media channels and reported by website, Mariñelarena said, "This year I will not be able to return to participate in the Moto2™ World Championship. In fact I have not even been able to start the season due to my serious accident and I'm starting to realize that my dream, which was coming true as I began working with the great Tech3 Moto2 team, has disappeared due to my recovery process which is taking longer than expected according medical results and my doctors."
