Dore Hernandez hopes to race in Malaysia

"I am confident the doctors' diagnosis will be positive and I'll be on Sunday's starting grid" - Yonny Hernandez.
Yonny Hernandez is confident he will be declared fit to ride in this weekend's Malaysian MotoGP round at Sepang.

The Blusens Avintia CRT rider dislocated his left collarbone, and took a hard blow on the sole of his right foot, when he fell in last weekend's Japanese Grand Prix.

"I hope I'll be able to participate in this GP because I want to carry on fighting for my ranking in the CRTs," said Hernandez, whose position as third best privateer in the world championship standings is now under threat from Gresini's Michele Pirro.

"I am aching all over now but I think I'll be able to ride because actually I don't have any fractures.

"I'll have to wait for Thursday and Friday's medical check at the track, but I am confident the doctors' diagnosis will be positive and I'll be on Sunday's starting grid."

It is a shame if Yonny doesn't make it to the grid next year, he has really showed improvements in the course of the season, and has constantly pushed that bike beyond its limits(that's why he crashed often)he doesn't have much grand prix experience which make his results even bigger accomplishments. Avintia should stick with him next to Barbera next year, and hopefully Kawasaki starts trickling in some stuff for them to use in anticipation of a possible comeback to MotoGP.
