Marc Márquez responds: "In Styria will you be 100% already?"

"I hope the percentage is high, but it is a bit unknown," answered the eighth champion on the physical condition with which he can reach the double for Austria.


40 days. This is the period that will pass from the checkered flag in the 2021 Dutch GP to the celebration of Free Practice 1 of the 2021 Styrian GP. A comfortable period, more than a month, that surely the entire World Championship grid MotoGP 2021 will take the opportunity to heal the bruises suffered during the first nine races and regain strength for the second part of the season. And Marc Márquez was not going to be the exception that this test verifies.

The eighth champion is still convalescing from the three operations that he has had to undergo to heal the serious injury to the right humerus that he suffered almost a year ago at Turn 3 of the Jerez-Ángel Nieto when he left the RC213V over the ears at more than 149 kilometers per hour and received a violent impact of 25.98 G-forces (unit that measures the increase in the speed of a body generated by gravity) by the front wheel of his Honda.Marc Márquez is also having physical limitations in his right shoulder

Physical limitations, which have also affected his right shoulder and were even on the verge of putting him on the ground at the 2021 Spanish GP, which have so far prevented him from taking out always and in any situation its one hundred percent, despite the victory at Sachsenring (Germany). Asked about the possibility that this break is the definitive push he needs to return to being the Marc Márquez of before, the one from Cervera affirmed in the press room in Assen (Holland) that his recovery is being a bit strange and that the only thing What was clear to him is that he was going to take a week and a half of vacation before returning to motorcycle training to try to be more stable.

"I hope the percentage is high, but it is a bit unknown. For example, on Wednesday, without doing anything of the other world, I called Alberto Puig and told him that I did not know if I could drive the weekend. I had a lot of irritation, On Thursday he treated the physio at the mobile clinic and on Friday I was lazy. But during the weekend, when I shook my shoulder, it got better. It didn't get worse. It's a bit strange what is happening to me. I understand which way to go, but what I have clear is that they have a vacation of a minimum of a week and a half. Disconnect completely, do nothing. My body also needs it. Let go of my shoulder, arm, everything in general. .. And then go back to training in my style: motorcycle, motorcycle and more motorcycle. Moto wants a motorcycle and that is what I will try to do for the second part of the season. I am not asking to win, but to be more stable and not have these potholes, which are the worst, "was Márquez's response to the 'DAZN' microphone.

Marc Márquez is more than 100 points behind Quartararo in the World Championship

It should be noted that the Spaniard is tenth in the drivers' classification, more than 100 points behind Fabio Quartararo with 250 still to be awarded, so he would need several failures from 'El Diablo' to arrive in Valencia with real options to win his ninth title. A situation that seems more like a dream than a feasible goal if we take as a reference his statements and the arduous rear grip problems that his mount suffers from. Although it is true that you can never doubt the little genius, big balls.
