MotoGP news 2018: Marc Marquez injury return date, shoulder surgery, Sepang shakedown test Malaysia

Published

on

Seven-time MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez expects his recovery from shoulder surgery will take “all the winter” as the Spaniard faces a race against time to be fully fit for the Sepang shakedown in early February.

The Spaniard underwent successful surgery this week on the recurring shoulder injury he further damaged in the final GP of the season in Valencia.

He did compete in the post-season Jerez tests last week before having the operation and predicted his recovery will take him right up until February, when the first round of testing occurs in Sepang on the 1st of the month.

“Recovery [will take] all the winter,” Marquez said. “Because it’s a long recovery, and I will not arrive at Malaysia maybe 100%, it will be tight.

Daniel Ricciardo and Renault have again set tongues wagging at pre-season testing in Barcelona, but not everything is as rosy as it seems.

The Australian set the track alight during the morning session on the fourth day of testing, producing the third quickest time, behind the Toro Rosso of Alex Albon. It comes after he surprised plenty by running third fastest on day three of testing after a lame opening day and mechanical problems on day two.

Albon set the second fastest overall time of testing of 1:17.637 on Pirelli’s softest compound, while Ricciardo, running the same tyre put in a 1:17.785. His Renault teammate Nico Hulkenberg was quickest of the lot, denying Toro Rosso a second successive appearance at the top of the end-of-day charts with a new benchmark lap of 1:17.393 on Pirelli’s fastest tyres.

However, his Renault soon afterwards broke down on track.

Speaking afterwards, Ricciardo said he was pleased with how his first week at his new team had gone.
