Pramac Ducati MotoGP rookie Andrea Iannone is to undergo arm-pump surgery on Tuesday in Barcelona.

Numbness and a lack of strength in his right arm continued to hamper Iannone throughout the Jerez race weekend, during which he was the quickest Ducati rider in two of the practice sessions but also suffered a knee injury and then crashed out of the race.

Iannone is expected to be released from the clinic the following day and be fit for the French GP from May 17-19.
