Team Interwetten Paddock rider Tom Lüthi looks ahead and is already thinking of his Grand Prix comeback. The 26-year-old from Switzerland, who suffered multiple fractures of his right elbow, upper arm and shoulder in a test crash at Valencia last Thursday, will soon start a rehabilitation program following his successful surgery. If everything goes according to plan, he could return to racing at the first European Grand Prix at Jerez on May 5th.
