The 8-time world champion has announced his recent condition on his Twitter account. According to Marquez, his relapsed diplopia came after his accident in the warm-up session at the Mandalika Circuit, Sunday, March 20, 2022.
"It seems that I am experiencing déjà vu, during the trip back to Spain, I began to have discomfort with my vision. We decided to visit Dr. Sánchez Dalmau, who confirmed that I have a new episode of diplopia," Marquez tweeted.
"Fortunately, it is less severe than the injury I had at the end of last year. But now it's time to rest and wait to see how the injury evolves," he continued, as quoted by Pikiran-Rakyat.com from Twitter @marcmarquez93.
He went on to express his gratitude for the fan's support during his current condition. "As always, thank you very much to everyone for your support!!" he said delivering the statement in English and Spanish.
For the record, Marquez previously missed three series at the end of the 2021 MotoGP season also due to diplopia and was declared to had fully recovered in January 2022.
The first time Marquez experienced diplopia was in 2011 when he was still in the Moto2 class. It took 3 to 4 months for Marquez to recover from the injury at the time.
So it could mean that Marquez could likely miss more than 5 MotoGP series until June or July. If that is the case, then Marquez might fail again in his pursuit of the 9th world champion title in 2022, after experiencing the same two years ago.
With that being said, when will Marquez be able to equal the number of titles owned by Valentino Rossi?
