An interesting sight occurred during the second free practice (FP2) of the Spanish MotoGP at the Jerez Circuit, Spain, Friday (29/04/2022).
Long story short, in FP2 MotoGP Spain, Marc Marquez had two accidents. Now when you have to kiss the asphalt for the second time, a unique scene occurs.
Marc Marquez , who needed help to return to the team’s garage, got help from his former Repsol Honda teammate, Dani Pedrosa .
Both of them have been together for a long time strengthening Repsol Honda. When Marc Marquez made his MotoGP debut in the 2013 season, Dani Pedrosa was a garage partner. The two only separated when Dani Pedrosa retired for the 2018 season.
A unique reunion ensued. Dani Pedrosa , who is now a test driver for KTM, also gave a hand for the six-time MotoGP world champion.
Seen in the video uploaded to Instagram MotoGP, Dani Pedrosa drove Marc Marquez right in front of the Repsol Honda team garage.
Marc Marquez certainly deserves to be grateful to his teammates. Because thanks to Dani Pedrosa, at this moment, he can continue the Spanish MotoGP FP2.
Marc Marquez was so difficult when he started the Spanish MotoGP despite his status as the host racer.
The six-time MotoGP world champion slumped to 19th in FP2 after finishing eleventh in FP1.
Marc Marquez in a Complicated Situation, After the Horror Accident in Mandalika until Diplopia Relapses
MotoGP observer Dennis Noyes also commented on Marc Marquez’s current condition. After experiencing a horror accident at the Mandalika 2022 MotoGP which resulted in a recurrence of the driver’s diplopia, Noyes assessed that Marc Marquez was in a complicated condition at the moment.
As is known, The Baby Alien -Marc Marquez’s nickname – had a terrible accident at the Mandalika Circuit during the Mandalika 2022 MotoGP warm-up session, March 20, 2022. The Spaniard fell and was declared unable to take part in the race session.
After the accident, Marquez’s diplopia, or disorders of the optic nerve, was also declared a relapse. This of course has a bad impact on The Baby Alien’s career considering that the 2022 MotoGP season has just begun.
Commenting on the accident, Noyes said Marquez’s current situation was very complicated. Noyes said the cause of the accident was not entirely Marquez’s fault.
According to him, Marquez’s riding style is appropriate. However, the circuit and motor conditions were inadequate for him so the incident was inevitable.
