Márquez is going to get vaccinated in Qatar

The ilerdense will travel to Losail to receive the first dose against COVID-19 and then return to Cervera to continue with the recovery.


During the penultimate day of the preseason for MotoGP riders, Dorna made official an agreement with the State of Qatar to supply the vaccine against COVID-19 to all members of the World Cup caravan who wanted to be immunized against the virus. Oblivious to all that movement, Marc Márquez was in Spain recovering from the injury he suffered during the first round of Jerez last season and in the final stretch of his rehabilitation, the ilerdense has been forced to change his agenda and set course to Losail to receive the corresponding first dose of the vaccine.

As AS has learned, Marc has decided to travel to Qatar imminently to comply with the deadlines and protocols established by the World Cup organization in the vaccination plans, which began to be supplied last Friday coinciding with the last day of testing for MotoGP riders.

The Repsol Honda rider, who passed the last medical check-up last Thursday, is progressing favorably in bone consolidation and has received the approval of the doctors to intensify his preparation and go back to training on a motorcycle, in addition to having been registered by the team for the opening event in Qatar, but that does not guarantee that with this trip his participation in the first grand prix of the season will be assured.Recovery in Spain

Márquez has plans to return to Spain once he receives the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. This will be the one that the State of Qatar provides to the members of the MotoGP paddock and therefore, between one supply and the next, there must be 19 days of difference, which are vital in the recovery of the ilerdense to be in full shape as soon as possible.

In addition to Marc, the pilots of the lower categories who will complete the preseason at the end of next week, are also anticipating their arrival in Qatar in order to benefit from a vaccine that most of the paddock received last Friday. With the exception of Nakagami, who refused vaccination, the rest of the HRC riders have already received the first dose and as Alberto Puig, team manager of the team, highlighted, "this is a fantastic opportunity and for which Repsol Honda is very grateful" .
