The Repsol rider will also miss this date due to a second surgical intervention on his injury to the man caused by his crash at the Spanish GP. The Catalan will prioritize his absolute recovery and will not force his return and, in this way, be able to reach the other dates of the World Cup and defend his crown obtained in 2019.
We will be left with the desire to see Márquez race. The Spanish will not be able to be present on the next date that will be played in the Czech Republic. The Repsol Honda representative had a relapse of his shoulder injury, which consisted of breaking the titanium plate on his right shoulder, caused by a fracture of the humerus of his arm in the middle third. This was reportedly caused by opening a window in his home; However, Márquez’s interest in recovering quickly and racing in Jerez was public, something that was not possible and only brought bad consequences. But now it will be different, as you will only focus on taking care of yourself and putting your health first. However, he is aware that he has a crown to defend and mathematically still has a chance to win this season.
On the other hand, Repsol announced that Stefan Bradl will replace the Spanish rider in Austria with the responsibility of scoring points and not being relegated; while Márquez will miss his third consecutive race.
