In a very long interview by Hector Izquierdo which appeared on GQ Spain Marc Marquez it was told in the round. In the photos posted these days from Austria it seems that the worst is behind us and that 2023 could represent the year of his return. We’ll see.
Meanwhile on GQ in February MM talked about last season and of the previous one: “Sincerely I don’t know how I managed to win three races in 2021, but it’s even less clear to me how I managed to finish fifth or even fourth in Jerez at the start of the 2022 season. Because in the race I didn’t have the head, neither the head nor the physique. There was a moment of the season, between the Portimao and Jerez Grands Prix, in which I turned my head off and said I can’t take it anymore. Before Portimao I went to my doctors in Madrid and told them: ‘There is something wrong in this arm, because I’m going backwards’. They saw that there was 34 degrees of rotation in the humerus.”
After the operation in the USA in June 2022, the return to the track and a comforting season finale, with the aim of finally having a winter of training and without operations: “This arm will not be completely 100% healthy, but we have to get to the point where it’s a functional and perfect arm for riding, e I think we will get there“.
The series dedicated to him will be released on Amazon in February “All in: Marc Márquez“, in five episodes: “Opening up so much in a documentary, you take a certain risk as a driver, because you expose all your fears and doubts to your rivals. You can see him as an athlete who had had an idyllic career up to that point suddenly finds himself in a tough spot.”
About 2015. Marc, speaking of the last Grand Prix of 2015, had his say on Jorge Lorenzo’s victory over Valentino Rossi: “I don’t admit it openly – said Márquez-. It’s not that I didn’t want to overtake him, but overtaking him meant taking a big risk. In the documentary I explain what I experienced in those weeks. People often ask me what would I have changed compared to 2015, and I think: ‘I would change the way Valentino handled the end of the year’. When you’re not the fastest on the track, you try to mix things up to see what you can catch.”
Soon, February 17 (one day after Valentino Rossi) Marc will turn 30 years, time to take stock: “Everything I had in mind when I started has come true before I turned 30. What I didn’t expect were the injuries.”
