MOTOGP : Sete Gibernau isn't fit to race

Gibernau had his left collarbone plated two days after his Catalunya accident and returned to action at the German GP in mid-July, but he struggled there and at the US GP, after which his surgeon decided that the plate was too weak, requiring another operation.

Following that surgery, the Spaniard underwent a final scan yesterday, on Wednesday August 16, when his surgeon decided that it would be too risky for him to race at Brno, so Gibernau and the team decided he should continue his convalescence and return fully fit at the Malaysian GP on September 10.

D'Antin Ducati rider Hofmann will once again take Gibernau's place on his Desmosedici GP6s, having already subbed for him at the Dutch and British GPs.

Sete Gibernau said: "Together with the team and my surgeon we decided that the best way forward is for me to continue my recovery, because the most important thing is that I return to racing in the best possible condition, rather than just to make up the numbers. So now I will work to prepare myself to contest the last part of the championship with even more vitality and determination.
Once again I want to thank my team because they have treated me like family since I first joined them, which is something I appreciate very much, especially during difficult moments like these."

Before Rossi screwed him up in the head. In 2004 he was very fast and consistently so. Don't take away from the man's accomplishments. He is one of the most honest guys in MotoGP and I respect him a lot for that. Have you ever seen the interviews with him in Faster, or the Faster Bonus disc? He's a stand-up guy.
