in Honda they already know

The Spanish pilot has not managed to recover in time from the broken hand he suffered in Portimao

Marc Márquez of Repsol Honda has explained the reasons why he is not going to run the Spanish Grand Prix this weekend and he warned that the doctors made it clear to him that it was risky and that it is not good for his sports career to have returned without having fully healed the injury.

And it is that the displaced intra-articular fracture of the base of the first metacarpal suffered by Marc Máquez in the Portuguese GP has caused the Honda rider not to arrive in time to compete in conditions for the next Spanish GP that will be held in Jerez this weekend.

That is why his team has published a statement confirming the absence of Márquez in Jerez. And, he points to the next French GP, which will take place at the legendary Le Mans circuit between May 12 and 14, as the objective for his return.

The place vacated by the eight-time world champion will be taken by Iker Lekuona, from Team HRC in WorldSB. The Valencian rider has already competed in MotoGP in 2020 and 2021 in the ranks of KTM. This is the third race that Márquez has lost in this World Cup, after Argentina and the United States.

The eight-time world champion doubts if he will be able to return at Le Mans and challenges Rins and Mir

Regarding the penalty that may await him on his return, Márquez has classified it as “something secondary”. Making it clear that “it was the team who decided to appeal.” ANDyes, Márquez does not understand why what was written was changed and makes his position clear. “For a pilot, the biggest penalty is being injured.”

Márquez will miss the Spanish Grand Prix and also the Jerez test. So the Spaniard took the opportunity to send a message to his teammates: “Honda has two more riders who are very good, who are Álex Rins and Joan Mir“. Of course, it puts a challenge ahead of them, especially that of the LCR.
