After an extended absence, not only from the tracks but also the press interviews, Marc Marquez was back in the spotlight during this morning’s factory Honda team presentation. The Spaniard is moving forward with his rehabilitation, in the hope of being able to return as soon as possible but, to date, there is no news as to when we might see him back on the bike.

It’s not yet time

“I don’t yet know when I’ll be back - said the Honda rider during the presentation - my physical condition is improving but I don’t know when the doctors will be able to give me the OK to ride again”.

So no good news for now for Marc Marquez. Some thought we might see him back in time for the Qatar season-opener but as things stand, this is looking quite unlikely.
