MotoGP: Marco Melandri Update

Marco Melandri has had his arm operation. The Italian will now take 2 weeks off, missing the Sepang test but riding at the Jerez test at the end of November. He won't have his leg injury operated on, because other treatments might yet work.
It's unlike Marco to take an entire fortnight off, I wonder if his doctor will have to chain him to a radiator to stop him jumping on a motorcycle...
Of course, the Gresini team will not have the new 800cc Honda MotoGP bike until the start of next year, so missing this test will not be a particular disadvantage.

Maybe he refused the Ducati because he didn't want to do the Sepang test!
