Not downplaying his injury, but it wasn't serious it all. Minor spiral fracture that needed no surgery and healed in 3-4 weeks. Hell some ankle sprains are worse than that.

His qualifying time on the M1 Saturday was 1:31.486

Best time on day 1 of testing the Zuki was 1:32.315. Best to wait until testing is over and see what his times are then.

Not positive, but I don't think they had any issues in testing today and both riders put in around 60 laps each. A Esp already faster than RDP after his first day on the bike.

EXACTLY! Don't need to be a trained weather man to know it was going to be a non-event. Lorenzo was the only fool to go in, poor Iannone got pulled in with him.
