Marc Marquez made almost a miracle in the first race of the season recovering from 16th to 3rd following a crash-save during the 6th lap of Spanish GP at Jerez rejoining the track in 16th but ended on crashing with a few laps to go while he was chasing Maverick Vinales for the 2nd position.
It appeared immediately that he was suffering as the crash was really violent; Marc screamed from the pain and asked marshals to help him on taking out his helmet from his head. After that, Marquez was taken to the medical center with the ambulance to have a proper check of his physical condition.
The first report was that he had a total fracture of his right arm but doctors could not established if his nerve was affected as well. It is a “strange and rare fracture” as reported from the doctors who visited him, but at the moment we cannot say when Marc could come back on track.
It all depends from his nerve, which could change recovery time: if not affected, Marquez will try to run again at Brno on 7th August for the third race of the season, otherwise he could be forced to stay three-four weeks out of racing.
For sure, Marc cannot race this weekend for the second round of the 2020 MotoGP Championship again at Jerez as reported from Dottor Mir who will operate him on Tuesday at Barcelona: “Marc will not be at Jerez this weekend, the goal is to come back at Brno”.
Mir kept talking: “It is an injury of some importance; if the nerve is not affected, we could tell you more about his fracture and try to reduce the deadlines for recovery”.
