One more week, Uri Puigdemont and Germán Garcia Casanova analyze in the MotoGP Podcast of the news of the world championship, which experienced a new appointment last weekend in Portimao , but which has been overshadowed by a new, unexpected and unfortunate injury to Marc Márquez .

When it seemed that he was beginning to leave behind the very serious injury he suffered in July 2020 and in which he broke his right arm, bad luck has struck Márquez again in the form of a fall, this time practicing Enduro, with the fatality of that the eye injury that he already suffered in October 2011 has reproduced, which forced him to undergo surgery eight weeks later and kept him out for four months.

“It rains on wet”, Marc lamented on his social networks after Honda announced the truth about an injury that, last week before the Algarve GP , was kept secret, and it is true that so much bad luck is really cruel and unfair, more even in a young athlete who has always given everything to be what he is, an excellent champion.

But if the injury, of course, is bad news for Marc, it is no less so for Honda as it arrives at the worst time, just a few weeks before the crucial 2022 pre-season test that takes place in Jerez on November 18 and 19. .

In these tests, the HRC engineers were going to put together all the pieces that they have been developing for two years, since we must not forget that due to the pandemic, evolution was frozen for two seasons, to determine the definitive path to follow with the 2022 RC213V .
