Luca Marini could be forced to miss the upcoming Italian MotoGP at Mugello after being diagnosed with a wrist injury in the wake of his dramatic exit from the French MotoGP.
The Italian was running among the leaders during the main feature when he began to lose the front-end of his VR46 Ducati on the exit of Turn 3.
Having initially looked to be destined for low-side, a sudden grip by the tyres flicked Marini upright again but just as he appeared to have saved the fall, he was clattered into by the closing following Alex Marquez, taking both off their bikes.
More than a week after the violent impact, VR46 Racing has confirmed that Marini has an injury to his trapezium bone in his right wrist.
For now, Marini still has two weeks to regain fitness to compete in his upcoming home MotoGP round at Mugello.
He isn't the only rider in a race against fitness for their local event, with championship leader Pecco Bagnaia suffering a fracture to his ankle in his race ending collision with Maverick Vinales at Le Mans.
