Marc Marquez to miss Grand Prix of Argentina

The HRC star is still suffering the effects of another diplopia diagnosis but has reportedly shown progress after a visit to his doctor

Marc Marquez visited his ophthalmologist, Dr Sánchez Dalmau, at the Hospital Clínic in Barcelona yesterday, Monday, where he underwent his second medical check-up after the crash in Warm Up at the Indonesian GP a week ago. In this new examination, Dr Sánchez Dalmau confirmed that the HRC rider's diplopia shows a notable improvement and reaffirms that the progression of his vision is very favourable. As happened with the last episode of diplopia, the number 93 will continue to carry out a conservative treatment regime with regular check-ups.

The Repsol Honda Team rider will not take part in the next round of the MotoGP™ World Championship that takes place this weekend in Argentina as he continues his recovery.

Doctor Sánchez Dalmau: “The second neuro-ophthalmological evaluation carried out on Marc Marquez this past Monday has shown a very favourable evolution in the paralysis of the fourth right nerve affected by the fall that occurred at the Indonesian Grand Prix. Recovery is not yet complete, and Marc Marquez must follow the established therapeutic regime with conservative treatment.
