Márquez is summoned to the medical check-up in Portugal

'La Gazzetta' has had access to the list of cited Portimao pilots, in which the Catalan appears in case of receiving medical discharge on Monday.


After being absent from the first two races of the season in Qatar, the next goal for Marc Márquez is trying to compete in the third grand prix of the year. It will be held next week at the Portuguese circuit of Portimao and the long-awaited return of the ilerdense to MotoGP seems something closer.

This is clear from the information published by 'La Gazzetta dello Sport', which ensures that the Repsol Honda rider has been summoned for the pre-competition review at the Algarve circuit. The Italian sports media has had access to the message that the Association of Grand Prix Teams (IRTA) has sent to the injured who will have to pass this process next Thursday, among which is the oldest of the Márquez.

The call has been for the official Ducati team, in reference to Jack Miller, and to the KTM Tech3 satellite team, by Iker Lecuona, both operated this week for compartment syndrome in the forearms. In addition to them, the Honda factory team has also received it for Márquez to be reviewed by the World Cup medical officer, Dr. Ángel Charte, and the Portuguese doctor designated as the national medical authority.

Both must grant authorization to the eighth world champion to get back on his Honda, provided they consider that their physical conditions to do so safely are adequate. Previously, the Catalan must receive the medical discharge of the traumatologists who operated on him for the third time for the fracture of the right humerus at the Ruber Internacional Hospital in Madrid.

Márquez will pass this new recognition next Monday, with more than enough time to prepare his trip to Portimao if his recovery has reached the level necessary to compete. He has always made it very clear that this return will only occur when this occurs and with all the necessary guarantees to avoid added risks, including that of a new injury in the event of a fall, always probable.Therefore, two litmus tests in just four days for Marc Márquez, who in recent weeks has devoted himself entirely to rehabilitation and physical work to be in the best possible condition for that long-awaited reunion with the races.
