Jorge, Valentino, and Cal seem to think so.

He's either keeping himself occupied with racing and being on the track or he'll be at home smacking his girlfriend around. I guess there are no winners regardless of what he does.

put your pain on the back burner

From MotoGP.com

The already dramatic race weekend was given a new twist when the Yamaha Factory Racing rider returned to the historic venue on Friday afternoon. The reigning champion, who broke his left collarbone in a heavy crash on Thursday afternoon, this morning received medical clearance to fly. He promptly boarded a privately charted flight from Barcelona, landing at Groningen Airport at 5pm.
The Mallorcan, highly keen to compete in the seventh round of the season, will head to the Medical Centre for his check-up at 8am local time (GMT +2) on Saturday.
Should he be declared fit to race, Lorenzo will start from 12th on the grid. Despite not having set a lap time in Q2, he was officially entered into the pole shootout courtesy of his overall fastest time from across the opening trio of practice sessions; his leading FP1 time was not beaten in either FP2 or FP3, as both took place amid adverse weather conditions

2013 FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix Iveco TT Assen - Decision of the Race Direction

In the MotoGP class QP1 qualifying session of the Iveco TT Assen, rider Hector Barbera (ESP) was judged to have impeded the progress of rider Andrea Dovisioso (ITA) during his first lap out of the pits with new tyres. Barbera rode on the racing line not allowing Dovisioso to pass through two turns. This was deemed to be riding in an irresponsible manner. This is an infringement of Article 1.21.2 of the Grand Prix regulations. The Race Direction has imposed one penalty point on Hector Barbera.

Following the same incident, Andrea Dovisioso kicked at Hector Barbera. This was judged to be an action prejudicial to the interests of the sport, and according to Article 3.3.1.2 of the Grand Prix regulations Race Direction has imposed one penalty point on Andrea Dovisioso.
No appeal was lodged.

The decision of the Race Direction is final.

If Jorge races, it will be epic.


If Jorge podiums, he is a legend.


If Jorge wins, he is a god

If he gets a few points he will be in Danny's head.

If he crashes again and aggravates the injury it'll be tragic...

Can he start from pit lane with engine n+1 without having used all of his allocated engines already? As others have suggested, lining up in pit lane, riding one lap, and then parking it (unless half the field crashes out on lap 1 and he thinks he can ride for points) would seem a pretty reasonable course of action...and I'm sure that someone at Yamaha Racing has already considered it.

This is, of course, assuming he can ride at all. I suspect that just about anyone on that grid is capable of making a lap without putting weight on one shoulder or the other for its duration, but he would need clearance from the medical types, too.

Krop, others,....

What does the medical clearance involve?

IIRC a certain amount of weight must be lifted with both or each arm?

What else is involved?
