Marc Marquez is trying to speed up his schedule to return as early as September in Misano.

Marc Marquez’s rehabilitation after his fourth arm operation is continuing apace, and from Madrid come signs of optimism from the eight-time world champion, who is looking forward to getting back on track. Honda team manager Alberto Puig confessed that he hopes for a speedy recovery for the Catalan rider, perhaps as early as September, at the Grand Prix in Misano.

However, a possibility that perplexes many doctors, among them physiotherapist Ruben Garcia, who expressed his skepticism to “An immediate return would be very hasty, suicidal. I wouldn’t give Marc a bike until October or November, and only to see how he feels.”

According to the rehabilitation expert, some complications will appear in any case: “There will be tendinosis and structural friction, also it is necessary to see how the shoulder will adapt to this new position of the humerus. The bone needs rest, the minimum deadline should be 6 months.”
