He will continue focusing on his recovery and will return for the British GP (round 12) on August 25.
Lorenzo and the Repsol Honda Team have agreed it is best for Lorenzo to miss both the Czech (round 10) and Austrian (round 11) events to continue his recovery and avoid any further risk of injury.
Having spent the summer break working on his recovery, Lorenzo’s condition has improved but he is still in some pain and his movement on a bike remains restricted. Silverstone has been set as his new objective for returning to riding for the Repsol Honda Team.
In his place, Stefan Bradl will again ride the RC213V in Repsol Honda Team colours. The German had been scheduled to wildcard at the Czech GP, but will now fill in for Lorenzo as he did at the Sachsenring.
