One of the main themes of MotoGP once the engines of the 2021 season are shut down is the recovery of Marc Marquez. The Catalan driver, who returned to the track after a long injury to his right humerus, had to stop again due to a diplopia (double vision) remedied in motocross training. This pathology stopped him in the last two races of the championship and prevented him from competing in the Jerez de la Frontera tests. The next step, as reported by Alberto Puig, is a check-up towards the second half of December, which will evaluate the evolution of the clinical picture of the rider’s eye.
Marquez has not made public statements in recent days and the testimony of Loris Capirossi, which on the podcast de The Gazzetta dello Sport, revealed that he had exchanged a few words with the Honda rider recently: “I spoke to him a few days ago and I must say that he is always very positive. He says, ‘Yeah, that probably didn’t take it too, especially now. It will be a difficult and hard winter again, but I’ll be 100% there for the Sepang tests’“. The optimistic attitude of the Catalan struck the former Italian driver, who then added: “Anyway this is what he says, who has always been a very positive one. No one can know how he is experiencing it. Marc was a bit unlucky in all these events, I’m sorry he is suffering like this, because I’d rather see him smiling on the track again ”.
Asked about an imaginative reshuffling on the grid, Capirossi observed: “Right now Fabio Quartararo is in perfect harmony with Yamaha, because it’s a bike that needs someone to ride it clean and he’s one of those who rides very cleanly. I wouldn’t look bad either on ‘Pecco’ on a Yamaha, even if lately he has made his style slightly more aggressive for Ducati. The level we have now – both riders and bikes – is good. I don’t deny the fact that I’d like to see Marquez on a Ducati to see what he would be able to do “.
Closing on the complaints of Quartararo to Yamaha on the sidelines of the tests for the few innovations brought to the track compared to rivals: “Yamaha has never been a company that upset the project, it was like that in the Valentino years too. They always brought small things, made small but important steps. When a rider is at the last test of the season at Jerez and perhaps sees that Honda has brought a totally new bike, Ducati that has shown several updates including the exhaust, it is normal for him to always complain and ask the company more and more. . But I see him very calm, his is not pretactic but just a attempt to put pressure to the company “, assured Capirossi.
