Morbidelli passed fit for Sachsenring round
Marc VDS Honda rider Franco Morbidelli has been passed fit to ride in this weekend's Sachsenring MotoGP round.
Morbidelli was forced to sit out the Dutch TT at Assen two weeks ago after he crashed heavily in third practice and fractured the third metacarpal in his left hand.
His Marc VDS team announced he would travel to the Sachsenring, the venue for this weekend's German Grand Prix, to undergo medical checks on Thursday.
The Belgian squad has now confirmed Morbidelli has been cleared by doctors to race.
Morbidelli is widely expected to join the new SIC Yamaha outfit next season, but the identity of his team-mate is unknown amid uncertainty over Dani Pedrosa's MotoGP future.
Outgoing factory Honda rider Pedrosa will reveal his plans at 4pm local time in a special press conference at the Sachsenring.
