Less than a week before the Indonesian Grand Prix, stress is mounting for the VR46. Valentino Rossi’s team announced yesterday morning the injury of its driver Marco Bezzecchi. The Italian fell during training at “TheDoctor” ranch on Saturday afternoon. The Ducati rider fractured his right collarbone. According to information from the team, he was directly transferred to hospital to undergo an operation. In a press release, VR46 gave the state of health of its pilot. She is not considering withdrawing, but if the situation does not improve before Thursday, the Italian team’s garages risk being closed in Mandalika. Three weeks ago, his second driver, Luca Marini also fell during the sprint race of the Indian Grand Prix at Buddh. At the moment he is still recovering and could return to Australia.
“Marco Bezzecchi underwent successful surgery this morning to reduce the fracture in his right collarbone. The Mooney V46 Racing Team driver crashed yesterday during the usual practice session at the Motor Ranch in Tavullia. Marco went to the Orthopedics and Traumatology Unit, where the team led by Professor Porcellini carried out the operation to reduce the lesion. The operation was carried out successfully. Marco will immediately begin the rehabilitation process: his return to the track will be assessed in the next 48 hours,” announces the VR46 team.
This injury comes at a bad time for the Italian, currently third in the drivers’ championship. Marco Bezzecchi is 54 points behind Francesco Bagnaia and 51 behind Jorge Martin. All his staff try their best to help the native of Rimini. His team and the medical profession still prefer to wait before making their decision. Over the next few weeks, it is difficult not to fall behind. With this injury for Bezzecchi, it’s surely a chance for the title that is gone.
