The Portuguese was involved in an accident on Saturday during a speed race on the Qatar Motorcycle Grand Prix circuit.
His team announced that Portuguese Miguel Oliveira (Aprilia-RNF) suffered a fracture in his right shoulder after suffering an accident on Saturday in the first lap of the MotoGP Qatar Grand Prix and will not be able to participate in the Grand Prix on Sunday. This is a new blow for the 28-year-old Portuguese, who had previously suffered two injuries this season: inflammation of the tendons in his right leg after he was subjected to a violent blow from Marc Marquez (Honda) in Portugal, then a fracture in his right leg. The humerus left a few weeks later after a collision with Frenchman Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha) in Spain.
On Saturday, Oliveira, who is also expected to miss the final round of the season next weekend in Valencia, collided with Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia) after heavy braking. The Spaniard suffers from a slight fracture in the head of his left fibula, and doctors will examine him on Sunday before the warm-up to see if they consider him fit to ride. The two pilots also pulled the Italian Ena Bastianini (Ducati) into their fall, who emerged unscathed from this collision and even managed to finish the race.
