The French Fabio Quartararo, team driver Yamaha de MotoGP and aspiring to the crown, he had a successful operation after having a muscle problem in his right forearm on Sunday in the Spanish GP, and is expected back at the French GP on May 16, his team said.
I am very optimistic about my recovery and I am looking forward to getting back on my M1 ″, Quartararo added in a message on Twutter illustrated by photos from his hospital room in Aix in Provence (southern France).
"We hope he is back in top form for the French Grand Prix", fifth race of the season to take place May 14-16 at the Le Mans circuit, Yamaha said.
Quartararo, who already underwent surgery on his right forearm for compartment syndrome in June 2019, began to lose positions in the Spanish GP since he had no "force" and his arm was like "a stone" when he dominated the race. Finally, he finished 13th. After that result, the 22-year-old Frenchman is second in the World Championship after having won two of the four races held.
