The good thing is that the arm is stable and that I do not feel pain in the area of the fracture “, confirmed Márquez after qualifying that left him in sixth place on the race grid.
I don’t know if I can hold out. I think it’s 25 laps the race and I don’t know. I think so, but the most I have done has been six consecutive laps. I hope I don’t have to pit, but we are in rehab and when that happens sometimes unforeseen things happen. We will try to leave calmly and not give everything at the beginning to be able to finish the race ”, confirmed Márquez according to the Spanish media Motosan.es.
