After a few moments on the ground, Pecko rose again: that is appeared immediately very distressed, in the pits he repeated twice not remembering what happened. After a severe head and left arm stroke, Bagnaya was taken after first medical tests. at a Valencia hospital to perform a CAT scan.
Michele Zasa, head of the Mobile Telephony Clinic, sought to clarify: "Pecko is gone and head injury. He also has pain in the left wrist joint: seems to have one Bruised Contour ». On the possibility of facing the race: “It is so far has been declared inappropriate, based on the outcome of the TAC, the circuit's medical director will have the final say, but it is probably not enough to run"For the time being, it is not excluded that Bagnaya will be able to take part in the tests scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday in Valencia.
