This bodes well for a timely return of The Marc, hope he can fix that Honda of his and we get an even better 2023 battle!

Note that I’m not his biggest fan but a three way battle (or more) between Marc, Quartararo and Pecco would be epic 😇

I’m a (retired) mechanical engineer.  My wife is a physical therapist (physiotherapist). I’ve come to realize that her profession is perhaps more important to the riders than mine. 

"..the doctors have confirmed that the humerus is consolidating correctly"

Now imagine that he heard those words first time around. He's still young enough to pull this off.
