Marc Márquez was the protagonist of the last weekend of MotoGP. The Spanish officially returned to compete in the top flight after nine months of injury. Nine months that made him doubt about his objectives and whether he would compete at 100% of his performance again. His family and closest circle were the ones who supported him on this long road. However, after his return he confessed that «My mother challenged me«.
In an interview with the Spanish newspaper AS, with his teammate Pol Espargaro, Marc Márquez spoke about what his return to racing meant and how the details of this lap were. There he talked about everything and was even encouraged to talk about his objectives for this season, which seems to be very complicated due to his physical condition and his lack of rhythm, something that he will recover as the tests run.
“The arm is bruised, but it was planned. I rested because we agreed with the doctors. The progression of stress to the bone and the arm has to be step by step and already assimilating everything that has been the weekend, both emotionally and physically and, if I tell you the truth, I’m already thinking about Jerez “, assured the pilot from Repsol Honda, already imagining the next date on the calendar.
“My mother challenged me”
On the other hand, Márquez confessed that his mother did not end up very happy after his return to MotoGP. “She challenged me, not because of what I had done over the weekend but because of what she had cried from home on Sunday. The relief is over and I think Jerez will be a more normal weekend, at the emotional level, and this will make me work much more relaxed, “added the eight-time World Champion.
Finally, Márquez spoke of the objectives that he sets after returning to officially compete. The Spaniard knows that returning to compete is already a victory for this year, although it will go step by step. “The goal is to feel better and be a little closer to the first, but I am aware that each circuit will be different. I would like to answer, but my physique and the evolution of my arm is what will mark the remainder of the year.
