Before Christmas, a check on the physical conditions of Marquez, affected by diplopia after a fall while training in motocross, was expected. The risk was that of a new operation, after the same problem suffered in 2011 when, following a similar phenomenon, he was forced to undergo surgery, losing the Moto2 world championship in favor of Stefan Bradl, current Honda test rider.
This morning, finally, a communiqué from the Repsol Honda team arrived that reads:
The Repsol Honda Team rider, who last October was diagnosed with an episode of diplopia after suffering a fall while training for the Portuguese GP, has continued periodic visits to his trusted ophthalmologist to assess the evolution of his vision over the past two months. During these reviews the progress made has been deemed favorable and as a result Marquez will continue with a conservative treatment plan for the next few weeks.
Marc Marquez will continue to undergo periodic reviews with Dr. Sánchez Dalmau during the coming weeks alongside the conservative treatment plan. The situation does not prevent the rider from Cervera from continuing his physical training plan to prepare himself physically for a new season.
This means that Marc's vision is slowly returning to normal. And this is a good sign taking into account that in just over a month, in Malaysia and Indonesia, the first tests of the 2022 season are scheduled.
Even more positive is the news that the Spanish rider can train, it is not specified if only physically or also on the bike. In any case, a new run-up for the star from Cervera who, however, even if he is not 100% fit this year has won three Grand Prix, proving that he is still the reference point in the category.
