Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez has been described as ‘progressing adequately’ while continuing to recover from an October training incident which left him with diplopia.
The eight-time world champion suffered a fall while training ahead of MotoGP’s visit to Portimao and was re-diagnosed with the condition which affects his vision due to nerve damage of the right eye. Marquez first suffered with diplopia in 2011 following a free practice crash at Sepang while contesting Moto2.
The Spaniard has maintained regular visits to his ophthalmologist to assess his vision over the past two months with a conservative treatment plan bringing ‘favourable’ results. Both the treatment and reviews with Dr. Sánchez Dalmau will continue over the coming weeks alongside his ongoing physical training in preparation for the start of 2022, with the opening Sepang test scheduled for the first week in February.
