Marquez: “The wound is healing well and looking good”

 Marquez: “The wound is healing well and looking good”

Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez is hoping his fractured finger won’t affect him in Jerez, as he aims to close the gap on Valentino Rossi.

On Saturday reigning World Champion Marc Marquez broke a finger in a training accident. The Repsol Honda rider was operated on the same day to treat a fracture to the little finger of his left hand, suffered while training dirt track, and had a further checkup on Tuesday afternoon with doctors reporting positively.

Marc, who will be looking to make amends for his penultimate lap crash in Argentina, has taken second place on three occasions at the Andalusian track – in 2009, 2012 and 2013 – with his first victory here in 2014.

Marc Marquez:
"Today I underwent another examination by Dr. Mir, and he confirmed that the wound is healing well and looking good. He took off the cast that they had put on and now I have begun to do some physiotherapy work with some active and passive movements. My finger will be checked at Jerez after every session and the bandages will be changed. I am very motivated for this Grand Prix, because it is the first of the year in Spain, there are my home fans there and I have some good memories from previous years! It's a pity about the injury, but I hope that it doesn't affect me too much and that I can get a great result in front of the fans."
