Ducati MotoGP rider Jorge Lorenzo has undergone minor keyhole surgery on his left wrist, in a battle to be fit in time for next weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix and his penultimate ride on the Ducat machine. The Spaniard broke his wrist three weeks ago in Thailand, falling heavily from his bike when a technical problem highsided him.

Sitting out this weekend’s Australian Grand Prix after also missing last weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix after breaking his left radius, he underwent the keyhole surgery to repair a ligament also damaged in the fall.

However, despite the operation, he’s confident that he’ll be able to return to action in only a week’s time at Malaysia’s Sepang circuit, where he blitzed the outright lap record during testing back in February.
