Seven laps and then it was over. I retired in Aragon due to an injured foot

Not fully recovered injury of the left foot was again a limiting factor for Karel Abraham during the MotoGP race. Czech rider had to give up a race after seven laps. He was not able to control a bike properly.

“The race weekend in Aragon was really demanding for the foot and I could not handle it any more. I was in Clinica Mobile and we were discussing whether something moved in my foot. We have also done an x-ray and it seems it was just overburdened. I will continue with rehabilitation but honestly I don´t feel it’s helping.”

“Unfortunately Karel had to stop after seven laps because of pain in his foot, since the foot is not strong enough to keep the bike stable. We did everything to finish the race but it doesn´t make any sense to continue when we are falling behind by 0.5 second each lap. This track is harder for Karel than Misano and as a result, the injured left foot is overburdened. We could make quite good lap in QP, but only one lap. But maintaining it for the whole race is much more harder.“
