Canepa released from hospital

Niccolo Canepa has left the Melbourne hospital after a surgery on Friday evening. The Italian crashed in Friday's free practice session at Phillip Island and was flown to the hospital in Melbourne. The skin transplant went well and Canepa will have to be checked up again on Monday to understand if he will be able to ride in next weekend Grand Prix in Malaysia.

Speaking about his surgery Canepa said: "Surgery went well. I spent a night in the hospital but tomorrow I will be at the circuit to support my teammate Mika Kallio. Now I feel much better but only Monday, when I will be back at the hospital to get checked up, I will understand if I'll be able to ride in Malaysia. Of course I'll do all possible to be fit to ride but with this type of injuries we have to be careful. I want to thanks the doctors that took care of me in these last 24 hours."
