Now, exactly 100 days after the Italian MotoGP, Marquez is back on the Honda RC213V. The Spaniard was one of the participants who took part in the mid-season trial at the Misano Circuit.
Marquez seemed to be carrying out his comeback action very carefully. After an hour of testing, he had just completed six laps with the fastest time of 1 minute 33.561 seconds.

In addition, the racer who is identical to the number 93 does not immediately use a motorbike with the latest specifications. He uses the same bike as the last one he used at the Mugello Circuit.
It is believed that Marquez can get used to his motorbike first. If he feels faster, then he will try the latest motorbikes brought, including the 2023 development variant.
Before descending on the Misano Circuit, Marquez expressed his desire to return to asphalt through social media. “Can’t wait to get back to racing,” he tweeted.
The mid-season test is indeed very important for Marquez. The reason is, if his physical condition is not ready, he will not take the second day of testing and has the opportunity to be absent again at the 2022 Aragon MotoGP.
