The MotoGP World Championship finds its champion Marc Marquez. Johann Zarco assures: “On Thursday he will be in Losail for the photo and I think he will try to shoot”.
Marc Marquez will be in Losail at the first weekend of the 2021 MotoGP season. To the microphones of DAZN, he still leaves the reserve on his return to the track. “I am completely focused on recovery, trying to get back as soon as possible. I can’t wait for the show to arrive on DAZN, whether it’s MotoGP or F1“. But he is intensifying his preparation and, after riding the RC-V road at Montmelò, he resumed training on mountain bikes with his brother Alex.
ZARCO ASSURES HIS PRESENCE NEXT WEEKEND
In the MotoGP paddock, they say they are confident of his presence in Qatar. Johann Zarco assures that Marc Marquez will be on the grid on Thursday for official greetings. “Next Thursday he will be here for the group photo. And in my opinion he will be able to run all weekend. I hope so for him, because he had been waiting for a long time. You have the ability to get up very quickly if your arm doesn’t bother you. And even if it has a bit of a nuisance, it will go further. However, when you go further, you can recreate problems with your bone“.
A prediction that must be taken with a grain of salt, pending official announcements. The six-time MotoGP champion could also decide to ride in free practice and test his physical condition. Then decide whether to continue for the entire race weekend. The question everyone is asking is whether he will be able to be as fast as usual. Or it will have to proceed step by step. “He doesn’t need to prove he’s fast, he’s an eight-time world champion and he’s the best at the moment. He was the best until last year, even in the race won by Fabio“.
In the 2020 debut race in Jerez, after the first crash, he made a comeback from 15th to 2nd place. Then the terrible fall while he was in pursuit of Fabio Quartararo. “He has shown that he is above all others” added Johann Zarco. “Will he be able to return to normal after a year off? I think so, but it need not be proven. It just needs to heal well. He also has to handle pressure from fans and media, because he is a star. It is certainly not easy“.
