Pathetic...no doctor worth their license to practice would tell a rider they are okay to ride....he heard what he wanted to hear, and not what the doctors were actually saying to him...

Good luck in his recovery...hopefully he will learn something eventually!

HRC had to be the adult in the room, after all they are losing millions while MM chills at home.

Well, we know he does have character flaws along with his incredible ability on a motorcycle.

It does seem a little uncouth to publicly shift responsibility.........unless the doctors actually gave him clearance to ride. What was the position of HRC and Puig at that point?

These are questions we don’t know the answers to yet. MM has opened that can of worms with his statement. I expect we‘ll see defense played here shortly.

This is a situation with established consequences and yet to be seen consequences. There will understandably be a lot of denial, cognitive dissonance with the consequent shifting of blame.

I recall Puig denying that the break in the plate had nothing to do with Marq's early return but that it happened at home. I found that quite the statement for him to be making at the time.

Re Puig and the statement about the home accident : it might be an insurance story, ie some insurance would cover home accident and therefore it would be the insurance that pays a) all the hospital + treatment fees for Marc but more importantly b) would cover Marc’s salary too !

If worst comes to worst imagine the financial loss for Honda to pay Marc until 2024 assuming he cant ride anymore.

Better for them to have an accident insurance pay hence the possible make up on home incident

Obvioulsy the insurance will contest and it will end up in court

I remember that statement about the window and also thought it to be a strange thing to say at that moment. I mean, really? Nothing to do with racing a motorcycle??? When MM plainly said he “felt something” when he was riding in that session, after which he pulled in and didn’t ride after that.

MM himself has put it down to the early return and said attempting to race is what broke the plate among his recent statements.

Perhaps too much significance should not be placed on one word particularly when a quote may have been translated from Spanish or whatever, but one recent quote from him is that the doctors failed to convince him not to ride, which hardly sounds like he was encouraged to ride.

Fuck off.
He is 100% correct, protocols are in place to save athletes from themselves in every single sport. FFS guys ride the TT every fucking year despite the obvious dangers. Only morons like you and the Valeban would heap shit on Marquez for doing something every single successful athlete has and would do. It is literally the doctors job to say no.

You mean like the doctor at the track that told him he was OK to ride? Or any of the other doctors that cleared him to ride. It only takes one doctor to stop anyone from riding on a track or competing in any sport. Yet all the doctors he saw ruled him medically fit to be on track which clearly was not the case.
