Locatelli suffered major injuries in the crash when he speared into a barrier that was close to the racing line at the Spanish circuit, but he will return to action this weekend at Le Mans.
The 2000 125cc world champion will make an early comeback when he rides his Gilera in practice tomorrow, citing the fact that he does not want to arrive at his home Grand Prix at Mugello without any practice.
Mechanics reproduced the scenario of a bolt working loose on another chassis, as the crashed bike was severely damaged, and they found that it would restrict the steering enough for an accident to happen.
Locatelli had been airlifted to hospital immediately after the crash, and he underwent several operations on his face during his recovery period.
