This Tuesday Honda is expected to announce whether Marc Márquez finally decides to reappear at the Aragón Grand Prix, which takes place over the weekend. Before making the final decision, the rider returned to action this morning on the track, at the handlebars of the sports bike that he uses to recover sensations and strength.
Márquez disputed the Italian Grand Prix at the end of May, and announced that he was going to undergo surgery, for the fourth time, to operate on his injured right arm. After undergoing surgery on June 2 in the United States, the Honda underwent reviews every six weeks before being discharged at the end of August.
Last week, at the Marco Simoncelli Circuit in Misano , Márquez took part in the two official MotoGP test days that were held there, completing 100 laps of the circuit with a best time of 1.31.642, just over half a second off the record absolute of the track.

After the two days of work, Márquez assured that the sensations had been good, but that he was going to wait until the weekend before making the decision, to see how his body reacted.
Everything indicates that the Spanish rider will be at Motorland on Thursday, as has also been pointed out by the championship itself, by including him among the riders who will be at the previous press conference on Thursday, along with Fabio Quartararo, Pecco Bagnaia, Aleix Espargaró and Enea Bastianini, although, yes, indicating that Marc’s presence was waiting to be confirmed.
This same Monday, Márquez has traveled to the MotorLand Circuit , and has done a series of sessions on the karting track at the handlebars of a Honda CBR 600, the pilot uploading some videos to his social networks.

The Honda rider was already on the same track before going to the Misano tests, testing the response of the arm and the strength in the operated area, the point that most concerned the rider before and after the tests in Italy.
If Marc himself does not reveal it before, we will have to wait for the team’s statement before the weekend to make the reappearance of the rider official, who since the end of May has missed the appointments in Barcelona, Sachsenring, Assen, Silverstone, Spielberg and San Marino.
