Marc Marquez is to return to MotoGP once he is fully fit, therefore meaning Marquez will likely miss both Misano rounds.
In a press release from HRC, it was confirmed that Marc Marquez will not return to MotoGP for two to three months until he is completely fit.
The statement reads “Marc Marquez will continue recovering in the coming weeks. The MotoGP World Champion together with HRC, have consulted with and compared the opinions of a number of specialists in regard to the injury to the humerus of the right arm that Marc suffered on July 19 at the Spanish Grand Prix. As a result, all parties have decided to modify the planned recovery process.”
“The objective of both Marquez and the Repsol Honda Team is to return to the World Championship when Marc’s arm has fully recovered from the serious injury that occurred in Jerez. It is estimated it will take between two to three months before Marc can return to the RC213V. HRC has not set a Grand Prix for the return of the reigning World Champion and will continue to report on the evolution of his recovery.”
This means that we could not see Marquez back on track until October or even November, throwing every possibility of the championship out of the window.
Albert Puig commented “There has been a lot of talk about Marc’s recovery and the various deadlines, but from the first day after the second operation we have said that the only objective that exists is for him to be one hundred percent. We do not want to rush. Once Marc is in a position to return and compete at the level he knows, then we will think about the next objective.”
We wish Marquez the best of luck with his recovery and hope to see him back on track soon.
