Marc Marquez and crashes seem to go hand in hand lately. Every time the six time world champion seems to gain some form, he is pushed back by an injury. It’s like one step forward and two steps back for the Spaniard. He has had a horrific run with his injuries and at the same time he hasn’t had it easy with his new challenger. Marc Marquez confessed that it felt like he was driving for a new team on this new RC213V Honda.
The Spaniard suffered an injury in training which gave him double vision problems and put some serious question marks on his return to MotoGP. He somehow gathered the grit and determination and returned to the sport even when he doubted his comeback at a given point in time. He looked comfortable during the whole of pre season clocking some serious pace and showing signs of progress.
But that wasn’t the case going into the first race of the season in Qatar as he could only finish P5. It’s obviously difficult to get on the bike after an injury which almost costed his career. He was able to do so somehow. But he was again pushed back with an injury in Indonesia which triggered the past injury. We have got to feel for a rider who still has a lot of racing left in him but can’t seem to steer clear of injuries.
Marc Marquez lays his heart out in his recent interview going into the Argentina GP
Marc Marquez recently opened up on how it has affected him mentally and made him scared to get back on track. The Spaniard said, “For Argentina I was very close to coming, but I didn’t feel motivated.”
“I didn’t feel motivated to take that risk in Argentina and I didn’t want to. I discussed it with the doctor and we decided to stay home, relax.”
“I started to train again in a good way and this week I had another doctor check and the vision was fixed.”
“Of course I arrive not in the best way, but we will try to do a great FP1 and then from that point start our weekend.” As reported by crash.
Marc Marquez has had it tough ever since his first major crash in Jerez and things seemed to have downhill ever since that incident. Let’s hope it’s a start of something great in Austin for the six time world champion.
