Mika Kallio will miss this weekend’s U.S. GP at Laguna Seca following a serious finger injury he suffered after crashing during the final lap at Assen.
The Finnish rider elected not to ride the spectacular American circuit in these conditions:
“I was so excited to race in Laguna Seca, but I guess destiny wanted to be this way and I will have to renounce. It’s a pity. We have taken this decision together with Pramac Racing Managers and I think this is probably the best solution. Laguna would have been a new circuit to learn for me and with precarious physical conditions we thought it would have been too risky. I will look after myself in the best way possible to be in good form at the Sachsenring, which is by the way one of my favorites circuits of the world championship. I wish all the best to Niccolò who will have to do well for the Pramac Team this weekend.”
