Aleix Espargaró was undeniably the man of this Saturday day, however rich in emotions. His incredible performances in Q2, a few minutes after one of the most violent falls observed this season, commanded admiration. The bruised body which was only suffering was nevertheless mastered by its owner who once again showed what precious and magnificent wood these pilots are made of. However, the adrenaline has waned and nature takes over as the hours pass. A new fight begins for the title candidate this year… So certainly, the exams ruled out fractures in the right foot after this violent highside in FP4, but the pain is increasing according to information distilled by GPOne. Aleix Espargaró, who qualified sixth in this condition, has a hematoma on his right foot. After undergoing cryotherapy at the mobile clinic, doctors decided the best thing for him now was to rest. For this reason, all his engagements with the press have been cancelled. It will be fundamental to know how this night will go, because it is only tomorrow morning that Espargarò will truly know his condition. The circuit doctors have deemed him “fit” and no further tests are planned, so the decision to race or not rests solely with the driver. This means that the Aprilia rider’s participation in the Silverstone Grand Prix is still uncertain. Aleix Espargaró: “I have a lot of pain and it’s getting worse”The plan is to understand what Aleix’s conditions will be on Sunday morning, check them in more detail in the Warm Up and then decide whether to race or stop. “The accident was the last thing we needed,” commented Aleix Espargaró. “I’m in a lot of pain and it’s getting worse, so together with the team and the doctors we decided that the best thing for me would be to rest until tomorrow and then assess the situation after the warm-up. up. Obviously I will do my best to be on the track, but as we are talking about a part of the body which is very stressed when driving, we will have to see if it is possible”.
