LONDON, June 15 Czech MotoGP rider Karel Abraham
will miss Sunday's British Grand Prix at Silverstone after
breaking two fingers in his left hand in a testing accident in
Spain last week.
The official motograndprix.com website said on Friday that
the Cardion Ducati rider should be fit for the Dutch Grand Prix
at Assen on June 30.
"I had two examinations...and doctors highly recommended I
not race," said Abraham, a race winner in Moto2 in 2010 but with
just four points this season.
"Otherwise the broken bones could dislocate and mean that
surgery will be necessary. In this case my start in the next
races could be endangered and we can't risk it."
