The Yamaha Petronas team confirmed on Twitter that for Morbidelli this unexpected coincides with one early summer break for the VR46 riders academy rider. We follow the wishes of the Malaysian team in wishing the blue centaur a speedy recovery. The World Championship will be back on track in Austria on Friday 6 August after a five-week break, a period of time in which Morbidelli could also decide to anticipate the operation already scheduled at the end of the season to try to solve the joint problems that afflict him for some time.
