Nine months of waiting should not be in vain for Marc Márquez. The Spaniard has the very hard task of finding himself with a very difficult motorcycle to handle, as it was seen in 2020 and with Pol Espargaro Y Stefan bradl at the beginning of this season. The physical and mental state of the pilot Sling they will have a separate role on their return. Will you seek victory?
The answers to the most thoughtful questions will be given on Sunday at the Portimao circuit, where the third date of the championship of MotoGP will start. However, it will not be just another race. The return of the Cervera driver changed the focus of the weekend and everyone will be looking for the unmistakable number 93 after nine months without seeing him in action.
Márquez will not be 100%, he already warned this Wednesday to the media that were present in the vicinity of the Portimao circuit. However Márquez’s mentality will be heavier than any physical ailment he may have. Márquez returns to the competition with a different mindset. Falling down didn’t mean too much two years ago, something that completely changed for him.
A fall will be a huge scare for him, but it can also be an essential mental aid for the next races. Márquez will seek the limits. His mindset is beyond a physical ailment. He confirmed it in the Andalusian Grand Prix of 2020, since almost 48 hours after his operation, he was doing push-ups and getting on a motorcycle.
The images of the Honda pilot arriving at the circuit of Portimao speak for themselves. The smile from ear to ear at all times and the great attention it generates, gives good news not only to him, but to the entire category. Nobody knows what will happen this weekend, but Márquez will look for the best possible result, although returning to compete already means a victory.
