Márquez out of Jerez test

Márquez out of Jerez test

The Repsol rider continues to improve from his vision problems though he is not yet fully recovered.

Marc Márquez will not take part in the Moto2 tests to be held in Jerez Circuit from Wednesday to Friday. After the last medical checks —made last Thursday in Barcelona by Dr. Jordi Arruga, neuro-ophtalmologist of the Instituto Catalán de la Retina—, the decision was taken for Márquez not to join the tests, as he is not yet fully recovered from the sight problem he suffers since his crash in the first free practice of the Malaysian Grand Prix last October 21st.

Following an evaluation of Repsol rider’s ocular damage, Dr. Arruga confirmed that despite having greatly improved, Márquez will not be fully recover to take part in the next three days of tests.

Emilio Alzamora, knowing that the injury needs a recovery time, commented that “We cannot estimate how much time Marc will need to be completely recovered, although the healing of the injury has been positive, as Dr. Arruga informed us. So right now we need to be patient”.
