Lorenzo to sit out PTT Thailand Grand Prix

Spaniard suffered a huge crash in FP2 and has decided to take no further part this weekend

Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) will take no further part at this weekend’s inaugural PTT Thailand Grand Prix after suffering a huge crash at Turn 3 in Friday’s FP2 session.

Lorenzo came into Round 15 as an injury doubt after his Aragon GP ended in disaster at the first corner, a brutal highside leaving him with a dislocated first toe and fractured second metatarsal in his right foot. However, after a fitness test on Thursday, the Ducati rider was declared fit to ride in Buriram. 

Now though, after his FP2 Buriram crash and with the three flyaway races plus the final round at Valencia firmly on the horizon, Lorenzo will fight to be fit for the final four rounds of the season – the first of those being the Motul Grand Prix of Japan in just under two weeks’ time.
