Danilo Petrucci fit for MotoGP return

"I'm happy to be back and I feel good" - Danilo Petrucci.
Danilo Petrucci will make a second return from hand injuries during next weekend's French MotoGP at Le Mans.

Originally injured during pre-season testing at Phillip Island, Petrucci was forced to undergo further surgery when the strain of competing in practice at the Qatar season opener re-fractured his right hand.

The Italian also missed the Argentina, Austin and Jerez races, where he was replaced by Ducati test rider Michele Pirro.

“I trained a lot in the last few weeks,” Petrucci said. “This time I did things more calmly, waiting for my body to give me permission to train.

“I'm happy to be back and I feel good. Of course we must see the reaction to the first impact with the track as the intense workout made at home certainly cannot be compared to a race weekend. But I'm very confident.

“I want to thank all the people who helped me and a big thank to all my fans for their support. I can't wait to be at Le Mans and I hope I can soon give to all of them so much satisfaction."

So, Scotty has four rounds under his belt for familiarity with tyres etc, and he clearly stated pre season that he was better than danilo, so I for one WL be watching carefully to see who comes out the best. My money is on petrucci every time.
