Abraham heads for Silverston

Injured Karel Abraham heads for Silverstone.
Karel Abraham intends to try and participate in this weekend's Silverstone MotoGP round.

The Cardion AB Ducati rider sustained a 'double fracture of the left fingertip' during last week's Aragon test. The final decision on whether he can race will be made after consultation with the circuit doctors in Britain.

“I´m leaving to Silverstone on Wednesday after medical examinations. We'll try to take out the splint and we'll see if the movements with the hand will be painful and if the cut fingers won't bleed again,” said Abraham.

“I really would like to race at Silverstone. We need to collect more points in championship and I´ll do everything to be at the track.

“On the other side it would be irresponsible to race at all costs, risking that the healing will take longer.

“There's a series of four races starting with Assen [at the end of this month] and it would really be a catastrophe to miss these races.”

If Abraham, who has scored points once this season, is unable to ride it will reduce the manufacturer line-up to eleven riders.

"i cant get points on my own..... so i will ride while injured and take as many out as i can so even they cant score....." Posted by Ammar (41 minutes ago) I can see you have a low opinion of Karel Abraham's riding skills but where is this coming from? Where has he been involved in taking out other riders, or holding them up, for that matter? A cheap shot and without any foundation. Were you lost for something to comment on maybe?

That's not sarcasm at all, it was just a cheap shot. I am not surprised as there is always a huge cynical input to these boards but even sarcasm generally involves a certain amount of real base to be sarcastic about. The only other thing that surprises me so far is that no one has as, as of yet, made some daft comment about his Dad's money. Karel Abraham is a brave and talented young man and I hope he can race at Silverstone and all the other races getting the luck he has been lacking so far this year to show his potential.
