Moto2: Wilairot's condition beginning to improve

The Thai rider suffered serious head and hand injuries in the road accident.
Doctors tending to Ratthapark Wilairot have described his latest condition as 'encouraging', though it isn't anticipated that he will leave intensive care for another week.

The Moto2 rider was admitted to hospital on Monday after being involved in a motorcycle road accident, Wilairot being knocked unconscious and suffering severe bruising to his head and hands.

Transferred to intensive care at Bangkok's Bumrungrat hospital, though Wilairot suffered a clot in his head, a statement from his Thai Honda PTT Singha SAG team says it is subsiding thanks to medication.

Moreover Wilairot has his left eye completely closed but fully understands what is asked and though he cannot speak because of the ventilator, he can respond by gesticulating.

Wilairot is expected to spend another week in the ICU until he is able to breathe unaided, where by he will begin six weeks of rehabilitation.

Wilairot had been in Thailand to attend to funeral of his father Kristmas Wilairot, who died last week.
