MotoGP Motegi: Lorenzo in doubt for Japanese race

Works Ducati rider Jorge Lorenzo is still in doubt for this weekend’s Motegi MotoGP as he is still in pain from injuries sustained in his last two crashes.

Lorenzo had hoped to be in much better shape to challenge Marc Marquez at Honda’s home track but says he doesn’t feel much better.

“I am very disappointed because I knew the fracture exist after the scan but I thought after 13-14 days the injury will improve and I will feel much better here,” he said. “Honestly I don’t feel much better, actually feel more or less the same.

“In the first days I feel some improvement, that is why I start to swim and make even some exercises but when I slightly force the wrist, I feel quite a big pain after some hours.

“The wrist is quite inflammed, the feeling is not good, the pain is quite big, making some movement.

“I don’t expect to feel very good on the bike tomorrow but anyway I’m gonna try to ride because you never know.”
