Moto2: Simon unfit for Silverstone

Julian Simon unfit for Silverstone Moto2 round.
Julian Simon will not be present at this weekend's British round of the Moto2 World Championship.

The Spaniard underwent surgery after a fracturing his right tibia and fibula when he was thrown into a highside by contact from Kenan Sofuoglu in last Sunday's Catalunya round (pictured).

Simon was second in the race and the world championship at the time. He will not be replaced by the Aspar team.

A 'hearing' into the incident is due to be held on Thursday.

Spanish rights owner of MotoGp & Spanish rider injured will = guilty Turkish rider who will no doubt be punished, don't recall Marquez being punished for being out of control and taking out Redding

On another note, after coming into contact wih Simon, Kenan was able to pick the bike up and kept braking. Surely, had he been "practically out of control" he should've crashed instantly - like Marquez and Redding @ Estoril.
