Aoyama out of Silverstone

MotoGP rookie Hiroshi Aoyama has been ruled out of this afternoon's British Grand Prix after falling in morning warm-up.

The highside accident left the 250cc world champion with 'heavy contusions' to his back and, after a check in the Medical Centre, doctors decided Aoyama needs to go to hospital in Oxford for a CT scan.

The Interwetten Honda rider's exit means there will be just 15 riders on the grid, with world champion Valentino Rossi already sidelined with a broken leg.

Before blaming all crashes this weekend on the tyres, take a look at what the riders actually said. Main cause of crashes at Silverstone was - apart from the fact that it's a new track and crashes are inevitable when you're searching for the limit - the bumps on the track which every single rider complained about. When you look at the crashes closely with most you can even see how the bikes start shaking after hitting a bump before throwing the rider off. The longer warmup issue of the Bridgestones surely makes things more difficult this season, but don't blame everything on the tyres. That's simply not true.
