MADRID, March 31 (Royals Blue) –
The Team Manager of the Repsol Honda Team, Alberto Puig, explained that his rider Marc Márquez is experiencing a new drop in the World Championship with some disgust after starting the season with “high expectations”, working to speed up his recovery.
Puig, however, was clear about the problem of diplopia -double vision- suffered by the man from Cervera after his crash in the ‘warm up’ of the Indonesian Grand Prix. “With the sight problem it’s easy, either you see or you don’t see, if you don’t see 100% you can’t run. As soon as you can see, you will run,” Marc Márquez said Thursday from Argentina, a Grand Prix that Marc Márquez will miss.
In an interview with MotoGP.com, the Repsol Honda boss assessed the situation of a Márquez who had started the World Championship with the intention of regaining his place in the fight for the title. “He is very upset. We started the World Cup with high expectations, we had a good race in Qatar and the test in Indonesia told us that we could have a good race there,” he said.
“But then things went wrong, he had many falls. Marc is optimistic, he is thinking about how to speed up his recovery. He had a very big accident but everything will be fine,” he added, while he did not dare to give deadlines.
“The crash was bad, we all saw it in Indonesia. But fortunately, the impact or injury is much less than what he suffered last year doing Enduro, it is somewhat optimistic but realistic to think that his recovery period will be less than last time It’s hard to know,” he finished.
