Another step for Marc Márquez on his way to Qatar

The rider rides on the Portuguese circuit of Portimao with the same Honda that he did last Tuesday in Montmeló.


Step by step. That is the mantra that, as an argument in his social networks (#stepbystep, in English) Marc Márquez has marked himself in the process of recovering his right humerus, a serious injury made him miss last MotoGP season. The ilerdense wants everything to be different in 2021, medicine has fulfilled its function and now he is in full readiness to return to racing as soon as possible, including next weekend with the inaugural Grand Prix of the World Cup in Qatar .

If last Tuesday Márquez got on a replica motorcycle to the competition one at the Montmeló circuit (Barcelona), this Friday he will use the RC213V-S again on the Portimao Portuguese track. His entire trusted team has traveled to the south of the country to complete a day of training that offers more information about the physical condition of the pilot, with a machine that can simulate to a great extent (215 HP of power) the sensations of the official of the Repsol-Honda team.

Márquez commented on his social networks with a brief but significant message “We continue! Test day in Portimao ”, accompanying him with the images in which he appears riding this Honda RC213V-S on the demanding track of the Algarve.

Beyond these messages of optimism, there is no official communication from Honda or his team about the intentions of competing in Losail of the eldest of the Márquez. At the beginning of next week he will travel to Qatar, where he will spend the following days with the rest of the World Cup family. He will participate in the events planned by the organization and, if he is confident, he will check his status during the first free practice on Friday, before making the final decision on participating in this first race of the year.

It will continue in the country of the United Arab Emirates the following week, since it must complete the vaccination process against COVID-19 there. In addition, if you choose not to rush your return, you will have a few more days of recovery and preparation to try again the following weekend, in the second consecutive test to be held in Losail, then as the Doha GP.
