Regardless of whether or not Marc Marquez opts for a third surgery to fix the injury to his right arm, his attempted return to action at Jerez - four days after the initial operation - will go down as one of the worst decisions in MotoGP history
The veil of secrecy surrounding the current physical condition of Marc Marquez is wrapped so tightly that there has not been so much as a glimpse inside. Honda, his manager Emilio Alzamora, his brother Alex, and the doctors who have been in charge of fixing his right humerus have given little indication of his progress from the Spanish Grand Prix crash that curtailed his 2020 MotoGP season in July.
Such vague signs leave little room for optimism, with Marquez having already missed an entire year's racing and no clear indication of when he might be fit to return.
