The wildest rumors have been circulating about Marc Márquez and his eye injury sustained during practice for the Portuguese GP. But now the Spaniard is still present for the HRC MotoGP team presentation and is also expected at the team’s training sessions in Malaysia in three weeks.
While training ahead of the Portuguese GP in Portimão, Marc Márquez again injured an optic nerve after sustaining the same injury in 2011. In both cases, the result was diplopia or double vision, which is obviously not welcome as a motorcycle racer.
Because it was a recurrence of a previous injury, all kinds of doom and gloom went around that the recovery would now take much longer, if there was a recovery at all. Márquez did not participate in the practice sessions at the end of the season in Valencia. In addition, there were also rumors that Honda was already running after new world champion Fabio Quartararo and 2020 champion Joan Mir to replace Márquez in the team if necessary.
The eight-time world champion regularly posted updates, especially noticing that he was never on a motorcycle. Until yesterday. After a medical examination, Márquez was allowed to start motorcycle training, on which videos promptly appeared of a happy Márquez riding a motorcycle for the first time in three months, an MX in this case.
It was also immediately announced that the Spaniard would participate in the team presentation, despite his earlier cancellation, and his presence in Sepang for the first MotoGP tests of 2022 was also confirmed.
While Ducati has meanwhile been labeled a towering favorite for 2022, at least a very formidable competitor is coming up…
