Puig offers Marc Marquez injury update

The Repsol Honda Team Manager shares the latest on the eight-time World Champion, and when we can expect to see him back

On Friday at the myWorld Austrian Grand Prix, Repsol Honda Team Manager Alberto Puig offered an update on how eight-time World Champion Marc Marquez is recovering from a second operation on a fractured humerus.

“Sore, logically,” began Puig, chatting to DAZN. “Little by little he is recovering, but a second intervention is always more complex than the first. But he is resting, he is calm, obviously wanting to be here, but understanding that he has something to resolve in his body, that he will take his time, but Marc you already know that he is a very, very optimistic person.


“He is a great born fighter, I don't have to say so now. From now on, when all this has happened, you will look back to remember this and you will surely draw positive conclusions and have learned a lot in this whole story.”

All the talk surrounding the number 93’s comeback points to Misano. Puig didn’t say a specific date as to when we could see Marc Marquez back on track, instead confirming that they’re taking it day by day.

“The objective is to give time to the fracture and continue from day to day. See how it evolves, understanding that it is not a matter of weeks. It is an important fracture, but hey, the evolution of the patient is very important and also understanding what type of fracture he has. I think we all understand it. Based on that... day by day.”
