I'm sure that must have played a role although IMO, the primary factor at play was MM's hunger to race and not let potential points slip by. He was already on zero points down in an unstable season with an unstable calendar because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The plate on his humerus was really long which conferred strength. However, it would have involved stripping more periosteum from the bone and hence increasing the likelihood of inadequate blood supply to the bone for healing. Perhaps they actually intended an early return but from where I sit, the writing was on the wall that the mechanics of the plating was not compatible with the sort of forces his humerus would have to put up with in race weekend conditions. I expected either the plate to loosen or to break with fatiguing.

MM's situation will likely be a wakeup reminder to riders and fans who think that a quick recovery is always the rule. Not so. Each injury is its own and like Rossi and his ageing, you simply can't overcome the body's limitations.

Marc is 100% to blame for his situation. He has always shown poor risk management skills.
