Former world champ Romain Febvre was carried off the track in the second moto in the Argentina GP after crashing in the wave section and was rushed to hospital for checks after holding his leg.
He’s now on his way back to Europe for more tests on his badly swollen ankle, but it seems the injury is not as bad as many had feared.
He said: “Well, the weekend start very good! 1st in time practice, 1st in qualifying race and 2 good stars on Sunday, finished 3rd the first moto after few small mistakes and was running 3rd again on second moto, but had a crash.
“Twisted my ankle very bad , still don’t know exactly what I got because it was too big to see it properly! Have some exams on Wednesday back home! Thanks for the support.”
