Zarco will have to undergo surgery after his accident

The French rider will be operated on this Wednesday for the scaphoid fracture of his right hand that occurred after his accident with Morbidelli and will be a doubt for the Styrian GP


Johann Zarco will undergo surgery this Wednesday to undergo surgery for the scaphoid fracture of his right hand that occurred after his accident with Morbidelli. The French rider will be intervened in Modena (Italy) but his intention is to be able to compete in the Styrian GP, in the same scene of the accident, this coming weekend.

"It is a common and normal intervention, they will place a screw in the broken bone. I want them to let me run," said Zarco about his intervention and subsequent return to the Spielberg circuit to be declared fit for the race, for which it will be doubt until the last minute. Before passing the corresponding medical check-up, Zarco will appear on Thursday before the FIM Stewards' Panel together with Franco Morbidelli to clarify what happened during the Austrian GP.

The positions of both pilots on what happened are very far apart. Morbidelli assures that the fault is of the French and this removes responsibility. "When I went to brake, Zarco probably changed course to protect himself. When he came out, I was sucked into the slipstream," says the Italian, while Zarco explains that he did not do anything wrong: "I was coming from the left and I went a bit to the right, which surprised Franco, it hit me and we lost control, because at that speed we couldn't control the bikes at that moment. " Now it will be the commissioners who establish responsibilities and, if they consider it appropriate, possible sanctions.
