Marc Marquez successfully underwent surgery on a broken right upper arm in Barcelona, which he broke in a fall in the last laps of the race for the Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez.
The Honda racer took the lead in the race, but then made a mistake and once again saved himself from falling in his own style, but then the fight for points continued completely from the background. The Spaniard made an incredible breakthrough and by the 22nd lap he had already broken through to third place, from which he attacked Maverick Vinales, but he fell badly in the third corner, and the engine also crashed into him.
In pain, he was placed on a stretcher and taken to hospital, where he was diagnosed with a fracture of his right upper arm, which was operated on today in Barcelona. According to Dr. Xaviera Mira Marquez was lucky in the accident as the radial nerve was not damaged and the broken bone was installed and fixed with a metal plate and a few screws.
Because the injuries were not as extensive, the recovery will be much shorter than it could have been and although it seemed that the current world champion this year, when the season is very crowded and races take place almost every weekend, will not be able to defend his crown. Dr. Peace announced on Monday that the main goal will be for the Honda racer to take part in the race in Brno, Czech Republic, in the beginning of August.
After zero in the first race in Jerez, Marquez will most likely post just one more zero at the Andalusian GP, which will be this weekend.
Honda has announced that Marquez will not be replaced in Jerez this weekend, and Cal Crutchlow, a Honda LCR racer who broke his wrist in the morning warm-ups before Sunday's race, will also go under the knife. The Briton traveled to the same hospital on Monday as Marquez, where he underwent surgery.
