FIM MotoGP World Chamionship: Andrea Iannone (29).
At the advice of Dr. Claudio Costa, who monitored Andrea Iannone during the race weekend, the Italian rider will undergo surgery on his right arm on Tuesday at Dexeus, Dr. Xavier Mir’s Barcelona clinic. The procedure is intended to resolve the arm-pump problem that continued to cause a loss of feeling and strength during this weekend at Jerez de la Frontera. Iannone is expected to be released from the clinic the following day, in time to carry out the rehabilitation necessary to regain use of the muscle in order to be ready for the Le Mans GP 17-19 May.
