Brivio: "Rossi could return for Czech GP"

Fiat Yamaha team boss hints at August or September return

FIAT YAMAHA MotoGP boss Davide Brivio has said injured World Champion Valentino Rossi could return to racing mid-August in time for the Czech GP at Brno, if the Italian's injuries have healed.

"Valentino Rossi could return in the Czech Grand Prix at Brno, on August 15. We're not in a rush and we will see when the right moment will be even if maybe a return at Misano, on September 5, is a more realistic hypothesis."

Rossi said although he was shaken by the incident his desire to compete in MotoGP racing is as strong as ever.

"I haven't felt any fear," he said. "I was a bit horrified when I saw the leg, yes...but the thing I dislike the most is to miss so many races. I will take all the time I need and be sure not to do anything stupid because I want to return quickly, but only if my condition allows it."
