Following his problem in the right forearm, Fabio Quartararo was operated successfully on Tuesday in Aix-en-Provence. From now on, the Frenchman from the Yamaha team will rest before the French Grand Prix.
Fabio Quartararo wasted no time. Victim of box syndrome on Sunday during the Spanish Grand Prix, the Frenchman left Andalusia and Jerez on Monday to take exams in France, while his competitors were in full testing on the Angel Nieto circuit. After making the decision to seek treatment now, the Yamaha rider underwent successful surgery on Tuesday in Aix-en-Provence, as his team announced on social networks. Thus, Doctor Olivier Dufour, the surgeon of the French Motorcycling Federation, took care of intervening with the Niçois to treat a “cubital trap”, as revealed by L’Equipe. “There is a small area in a vein in his forearm where the blood is not circulating well. We must therefore unblock this part but it is a benign operation, much less heavy than for a real compartment syndrome ”, confided on this subject Eric Mahé, his manager.
