Marc Marquez has officially confirmed he will not return to MotoGP until 2021.
8 x World Champion Marc Marquez has confirmed he will not continue to MotoGP for the remainder of the 2020 season after breaking his humerus in the opening race of the season. Marquez has sat out of the entire season since then following a failed attempted return at the Andalucian Grand Prix in an attempt to recover points for the title fight.
This return was a disaster and is widely believed to be the reason the plate in his arm snapped, despite Honda’s claims that he snapped it opening a window and not riding a 300 horsepower MotoGP bike.
In a statement on social media, he confirmed he will not race in 2020 saying, “Finally this season I will not compete again. After evaluating how the arm is doing together with the Doctors and my team, we have decided that the best option is to return next year. Now it’s time to continue with the recovery process. Thanks to everyone for the messages of support. Looking forward to returning in 2021!!”
We look forward to seeing him fight for his ninth title in 2021 and wish him the best with his recovery.
