HRC test rider Stefan Bradl will replace Marc Marquez in the Repsol Honda Team garage at this weekend’s Grande Prémio Brembo do Algarve, with the eight-time World Champion side-lined after he suffered a slight concussion during a training accident.
The Algarve GP will be Bradl’s fifth appearance of 2021, with all four of the German’s previous Grand Prix rides leading to point-scoring finishes – an 11th in Qatar his best result so far. In addition, Portimao holds fond memories for the 2011 Moto2™ World Champion, who claimed an impressive seventh place in Portugal last season.
Bradl: “First of all I hope Marc is recovering well and he can be back on track soon. I am looking forward to riding again as Portimao is an enjoyable circuit where we had a good result towards the end of 2020. It’s never easy to jump on the bike, but we have had a lot of good bike time this year between the races and testing.”
