Miguel Oliveira’s first MotoGP season with Aprilia is over after his Qatar injury – and the Portuguese is happy to see the back of it
an abrupt end. It has been a miserable season for Miguel Oliveira, who ended his MotoGP campaign early due to injuries sustained in the Qatar Grand Prix. Oliveira crashed on the opening lap, taking down his teammate and another rider. He suffered a fractured scapula and bruised his leg, but surgery is not expected. This season has been plagued with injuries for Oliveira, who only finished eight Sunday races and scored points in three sprints. Sitting 16th in the championship standings, he is eager to head home for the winter and begin his recovery.
