What Marquez will we get on his much-needed MotoGP return?

As Marc Marquez’s comeback draws nearer, the six-time MotoGP world champion will have the eyes of the motorsport world on him to see if his incredible speed returns instantly. How Marquez deals with this could be key to both what he and the wider grid faces in 2021

This writer recently rewatched the 2020 Spanish Grand Prix as a means to fill some of this seemingly endless lockdown void we’re currently observing. Last year’s MotoGP season-opener has now of course become a day of infamy, the day that effectively ended Marc Marquez’s sixth title defence.

However, it was so very nearly a day that would have been remembered as one of Marquez’s best. Shooting off-track at the Turn 4 left-hander while leading on lap five of 25, Marquez began a comeback displaying nothing but his devastating talent, carving back from 16th to podium contention by the 21st tour. A lap later, he crashed chasing Maverick Vinales and broke his arm.
