Bad news comes from the MotoGP Grand Prix of the Czech Republic. Pecco Bagnaia will not be able to take part in the race and it won't be in Austria either. The Italian rider injured his right leg in a fall during the first free practice of the morning. You will have to undergo surgery.
Bagnaia got up on her own feet at first, but felt a sharp pain in her right leg. He was taken to the medical center and later to the nearest hospital, where they have done tests. The result is that have a fracture in the upper part of the tibia, almost knee high.
Pramac will have to look for a replacement for Austria, possibly Pirro
What's more Bagnaia could also have knee ligaments affected. More tests will be carried out to discover the extent of the problems in that knee, but what they confirm from the team is that almost certainly he will not be able to be in either the Brno race or the first meeting of the Red Bull Ring.
Fonsi Nieto, the Pramac coach, told the DAZN microphone that " almost 100% we miss this race and possibly the next. He has a small fracture in the bone, we have to wait for the MRI to see if the ligaments of his right knee are affected. It has come at the worst time."
The injury comes at the worst possible time for Bagnaia. Not only because the 2018 Moto2 world champion was starting to shine with the Ducati, as we saw in Jerez, where only a breakdown separated him from the podium, but because there are also very favorable circuits for your motorcycle, especially the Red Bull Ring.
From Ducati they trust that Bagnaia can be ready for within two weeks, the Grand Prix of Styria, which will be the last place in this triplet. "He has a fracture, he will surely have surgery tomorrow in Italy. I think he has a chance of coming back in the second race in Austria, but we don't know yet," says Davide Tardozzi, the Borgo Panigale manager.
So Pramac will have to find a replacement for the Austrian Grand Prix. In principle, no one is expected to get on his bike tomorrow in Brno, but MotoGP regulations prevent leaving the bike empty for more than one race. It may be time for Michele Pirro, the Ducati tester, to get on the Pramac bike in Austria.
