Marc Marquez: I have waited a long time for these kinds of feelings

Marc Marquez will finally return after all the problems he had. Marquez will be part of the Austrian Grand Prix and is ready to talk to Honda executives about bike and the future. "Honda is in a critical moment. I am speaking a lot with my team and trying to understand the 2022 bike, the situation and what is happening," Marquez said, as quoted by motorsport.

"This is why I will go to Austria, to speak to everyone and to meet with the HRC staff from Japan to work for the future. We are all working together, we win together, we lose together, and we will come back together.

I'm speaking a lot with Stefan Bradl as well, us and Santi are working together and testing things – both know how I ride. "I said in Mugello that I will be at home, but I want to stay connected. With the previous operation I disconnected too much, and I want to be involved so that when I come back, I will have everything fresh."

Marc Marquez on recovery

After the surgery on his right hand, his recovery is getting better. "Step by step I am feeling better, and the bone is healing in a good way, which is the best news of all," he said. "We are still in rehabilitation mode; I am working very hard on the cardio side to try and be ready.

"At the end of August, I have another medical check, from there we can make another step with the rehabilitation and really start pushing and building muscles. Some days are better than others, but this is all part of the journey.

"I'm optimistic, but I don't want to say too much about timings until we have this check – it's not the time to push too much. I have waited a long time for these kinds of feelings." Marquez has had many problems in the last two years.

"It has been a struggle, it's not two days or two months I have been struggling, it's two years," he explained. "I won some races last year like this, but I was struggling a lot. "In Jerez I realised something had to change.

It was hard and is hard now mentally – not because I am not racing, but because you always have this doubt about the arm. I can't have another operation. I am convinced this one will be good, but these thoughts are always there in the back of your mind."
