Marc Marquez returns to MotoGP Aragon Grand Prix action this week in his native Spain, following a successful test at the Misano World Circuit in Italy. Marquez has been out with an arm injury since the 2022 Italian Grand Prix when he finished 10th.
“Unfortunately, I have to take a vacation from the 2022 season, which will keep me away from competition for a long,” Marquez remarked at the time on MotoGP.com. After months of intensive work with my new medical team in Madrid, my physical condition has improved and I have reduced the discomfort in my right arm to compete in Grands Prix, but I still have significant limitations in my humerus that prevent me from riding the bike properly and achieving the goals I have always set for myself.
The rider to beat is Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia, who has put his summer fiasco in Ibiza behind him.
Bagnaia has won the last four races, including Silverstone, and paddock speculation is that his title challenge may benefit from Ducati team orders due to the huge volume of red motorcycles.
Yamaha’s Fabio Quartararo is the reigning champion and leads the 2022 standings, but he has won less races this season than Bagnaia. Aragon is an excellent place for him to find his form if he wants to win back-to-back titles.
MotoGP is preparing for a three-race weekend, beginning this weekend in Spain with the Aragon Grand Prix. Fans in the UK can watch the race on BT Sport 2 at 1 pm, while those on the West Coast of the United States may watch at 5am and those on the East Coast at 8 am.
