The latest news: Marc Marquez is ready to get back behind the wheel of a motorcycle! Simultaneously with this message, on the air of the Spanish channel DAZH, Marquez responded to all the detractors at once. He also talked about what exactly he was doing at the Red Bull Ring, how he sees his career, his future, and his place in MotoGP right now.
Marc Marquez has just announced the positive result of a full-scale scan of his operated right arm in Madrid. The doctors gave him the go-ahead to intensify training, which means… Marc can get back on the bike!
“Green light to speed up recovery! Thanks to Joaquin, Samuel, Ignacio, and Angel for keeping me from rash actions with all their might for all these 3 months,” Marquez wrote on Twitter.
No matter what people say, Marquez remains the most titled and successful MotoGP driver after Valentino Rossi: he has 8 world titles on his account, 6 of which were won from 2014 to 2019 in the Royal Class. And Marquez remains the most successful Honda driver after Mick Duane, who has 5 GP500 titles in a row.
During the interview, DAZN traditionally collects comments and questions from subscribers of the channel live, and there were several rather harsh messages from haters calling on Mark to leave MotoGP right now, because, as it seems to them, Marc has already left the game back in 2021.
Marc, of course, saw these comments, and did not reach into his pocket for a word:
“Even in isolation, you are not completely isolated from the world… but I read the words about “throwing out the white flag in advance.” You probably remember what I said recently: I will leave when I realize that my eggs are rotten. I’ll find out about it soon. But at the moment I remain the most productive Honda driver in the championship, and the guys who work with me at HRC are not weaklings: Pol Espargaro, 4th in the world Championship in 2020 with KTM; Alex Marquez, 2-time world champion; Nakagami, who has years of experience in MotoGP.”
“Of course, such words hurt me… you just have no idea what you’re talking about. You can’t just take it and leave. But it hurts me and it doesn’t hurt me at the same time, because I learned a long time ago to use social networks and ignore all the sludge. I communicate with those to whom I am dear, I communicate with relatives and friends. Those who are going through these difficult times with me will have a lot of fun when we get back into business!”
Also, Marquez told why he went to the Austrian Grand Prix. This is part of a development program that Marquez continues to participate in, even without riding a motorcycle.
“My goal has remained unchanged – to prepare and get to the start this year, at least once. This is necessary for our development program, for HRC. It’s part of my job. We will prepare for 2023 and come back full of strength and confidence,” Marquez promised.
