If the first contact of Marc Márquez with his speed bike, after 136 days in the dry dock, was aired on twitter by another driver, this time the RepsolCX team managed to keep the doors closed to indiscretions throughout the two days of training of the pilot of Cervera in the circuit of Albacete.
Two days of work that concluded with a statement where they show their satisfaction for the recovery of the young driver and announce that he will climb on his Suter next to the rest of the Moto2 grid in the IRTA test in Jerez from 19 to 21 March.
“Thanks to the Alcarras test it was possible to be in Albacete and make this real test, and the truth is that it was incredible to get back on the bike, these two days of training have helped me to add kilometers, to feel again the sensations on top of the Suter and to be able to be convinced to shoot in Jerez “, explained the pilot of Cervera.
After the approval of the ophthalmologists of the Clinic, last Monday, and after trying the Suter, the next day, making only 8 laps to the Alcarràs circuit, Marc went to Albacete, where he shared a track with the boys of Estrella Galicia 0 , 0 of Moto3, which also directs Emili Alzamora. Marc made short runs, whose times have not been facilitated by not being important at the moment, but which have served him to evaluate himself as a driver.
Still not 100%
Recognize, however, that you are not 100% recovered from your double vision problem when looking up. “I’m still a bit short, but this is a first big step in my preseason,” he explains. It is the latest sequel to the fall of last October 21 in Sepang due to the negligence of the circuit stewards.
Emili Alzamora, his team leader and personal manager, pointed out that “we are all very happy to see Marc again on the bike, he has waited five months and that is a long time for a driver like him.
Albacete training has been satisfactory, but the most important thing is that Marc has smiled again, we have seen him smile more than ever, “a clarifying signal.
Despite the fact that Márquez has missed eight official Moto2 practice sessions, it is not an excessive handicap for the world runner-up since he enjoys the Suter 2012 chassis, the same one that his teammates premiered a month ago, since September of last year during the Past Grand Prix of Aragon.
The importance of not missing the next test in Jerez, the last official before the start of the World Cup in Qatar on April 8, is that this is where all the world champions will receive the Honda engines prepared by GEO Technology.
