The latest news surrounding Repsol Honda’s MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez is a bit more positive this time around as he was allowed to go home and continue his recovery process there. This is after spending over a week at the Hospital Ruber Internacional in Madrid, Spain following his third surgery on his injured arm as well as an antibiotic course to kickstart the healing process.
Repsol Honda has released a short yet simple statement regarding their world champion, which goes as follows.
Marc Marquez returns home
Marc Marquez’s progress after the surgery performed on December 3 and the start of antibiotic therapy has been deemed satisfactory by his medical team. Today he has been discharged from the Hospital Ruber Internacional to continue his recovery at home, where he will continue with the specific antibiotic treatment.
This is indeed a good sign, and we might be able to see Marquez back in action sooner than everyone thinks. Previously, experts have indicated that his recovery process alone might take up to six months, which also means that Marquez will miss the first seven races of the 2021 championship season.
Our best guess is that they’ll do everything they can to speed up his recovery process before flying him out to Sepang in February for the first MotoGP pre-season testing. There’s a good chance that he might not ride the new Honda RC213V at all, but his presence will certainly be assured. Stay tuned for more updates.
