Friday Practice Review
Lorenzo enjoyed a great run during the first of two practice sessions on Friday. The Spaniard posted 1:22.047 to Dani Pedrosa's late 1:22.221, with Valentino Rossi third and Bradl fifth. Lorenzo was leading during the early part of the second session as well, until his accident.
However, the Yamaha driver's 1:22.252 remained quick enough for fourth, behind Bradl and compatriots Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez. Rossi was fifth with 1:22.395.
Meanwhile, Britain star and Tech 3 Rider Cal Crutchlow was also involved in an incident - this time at Turn 11 - during the second practice session. However, the 27-year-old escaped with minor injuries and will take part in the rest of the weekend. Lorenzo was not quite so lucky though; the Yamaha Factory Racing team has confirmed his withdrawal from the rest of the German Grand Prix.
According to a note on the MotoGP website "Lorenzo's latest accident has resulted in damage to the titanium plate in the champion's left shoulder; a further operation is now required".
