Nakatomi no starter
On Friday, Shinichi Nakatomi crashed heavily in the last left hand curve. He landed on his wrists and was hurt. On Saturday morning, he came to see the official doctors of the Championship who took the decision not to let him race because there was a possibility of fracture.
Martial Garcia (team-manager): "Nakatomi had a bad crash because of a highside. As he is hurt at his left wrist, the doctors decided to declare him unfit."
