Corsi to miss Misano round after Silverstone crash

Corsi to miss Misano round after Silverstone crash

Simone Corsi has undergone a four hour operation at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford to fix the open and displaced fracture of the ulna of his left arm, following his crash at Silverstone.

Corsi was operated on by Doctor David Noyes and Doctor Tom Braggs to reduce and fix the fracture with a plaque and screws. During the surgery, the doctors discovered injuries to the extensor tendons of the wrist that were repaired.

The NGM Forward Racing Team state that an exact estimation of Corsi’s recovery time cannot yet be given. They expect him to be released from hospital on Tuesday and his participation in the GP TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini at Misano in less than two week’s time has been ruled out.

NGM Forward Racing Team and the MotoGP™ community in general wish Corsi a prompt recovery and hope to see him back on track as soon as possible.

The team and Corsi himself would like to thank the medical stuff of the Medical Centre of the Silverstone circuit, the doctors of the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and the doctors of the Clinica Mobile, Doctor Michele Zasa and Doctor Francesco Pogliacomi, for their support and professionalism.
