Apparently, the new year doesn’t seem to have started out in the best of ways for Honda. As we already know, Marc Marquez will face the tests in Sepang not in great shape, due to his surgery in December. Jorge Lorenzo will also not be in Malaysia following the fall he took during training, which caused him to fracture his scaphoid. In addition to the two Spaniards, let’s not forget Cal Crutchlow who is still struggling with a foot problem.
The situation already seems to be problematic in itself but, as we know, there’s never an end to the worst. Indeed, Alberto Puig fractured his arm the other day after a fall from his bike. This isn’t a small problem for the HRC team manager, who will be forced to skip the three days in Malaysia due to his injury. At the moment, there is no other news regarding his recovery.
