Injured works Ducati MotoGP star Jorge Lorenzo will return to action at Sepang this weekend after missing the Motegi and Phillip Island rounds.
Lorenzo had surgery on his left wrist a little over a week ago and warns that although he won’t be 100 per cent fit, he will try and race in Malaysia.
“Only eight days have passed since I had an operation on the ligament of my left wrist, but I’m feeling a bit better,” said the former champion.
“For sure the operation was quite recent and so we’ll have to wait until I get on the bike to see how the wrist responds and if I still have a lot of pain when I ride. On Thursday I’ll go to the circuit medical staff for a check-up on my condition and I hope to be able to race even though I won’t be at 100%.
“I haven’t been able to train for the past few days and the Sepang circuit is very challenging, so this is not exactly an ideal scenario to return to the track.”
Test rider Michele Pirro is on stand-by in case the effort is too much for Lorenzo.
