Honda riders have experienced hell since their last victory at Valencia 2019. A badly broken arm dominated him from the entire 2020 season, threatening his career as he needed three surgeries on his right arm bone.
And since resuming activity in Portugal in April, Marquez has been far from his normal self and lacking strength in his right shoulder has prevented him from riding in his normal style.
What’s more, Marquez had to wrestle with a Honda motorcycle that proved difficult in 2021, and the bike suffered from a lack of rear grip.
Since the 125cc race in 2010, the undefeated conditions at Sachsenring (counterclockwise tracks with some rain spots) have been perfect for Marquez to claim a spectacular comeback victory.
In the latest Tank Slappers podcast, Lewis Duncan of Autosport and Oriol Puigdemont of Motorsport.com discuss Marquez’s path to victory and how he achieved it.
They also discuss the deterioration of Yamaha’s situation with Maverick Viñales. Maverick Viñales had the worst weekend in history at MotoGP and blamed the team for his “rude” response to his problems.
Uri then gained insight into the latest news from the paddock, with the imminent partnership with VR46 / Ducati and the future of star Moto2 rookie Raul Fernandez gaining headlines in the past week.
