The first five races disputed upon returning to the track after the long period of absence due to the injury at Jerez 2020, saw a Marc Marquez in clear physical difficulty and unable to show all his talent. The last two races went better, with the success of the Sachsenring – a track that runs for the most part counterclockwise – and the recovery in the 20th position in the seventh final position in Assen. The Honda champion is aware that he has to be patient and will use these 40 days of MotoGP break to try to take another step forward.

When asked about the sensations he hopes to find after returning from the summer holidays, he explained: “I hope to improve my fitness, but it’s a bit of an unknown“, Marquez began, then returning to the recent Dutch GP:”For example, on Wednesday in Assen, without having done who knows what, I called Alberto Puig and told him that I didn’t know if I would be able to ride at the weekend. I had inflammation, so much so that on Thursday I underwent a treatment in the Mobile Clinic and on Friday I felt without strength. But over the weekend I got better. What’s happening to me is a little weird“, The eight-time world champion confessed.

I need not always worry about the arm and everything else “, and concluded, in the interview given to Dazn: “I’m not asking to win, but to be more stable and not have these ‘lows’, which are the worst thing“.
