Marquez explained his withdrawal from the Sachsenring race, stating he was “not prepared”.

Though admitting he has “a threshold” for how prepared he feels for the Dutch GP, Marquez emphasized his participation was “critical” for Honda as Alex Rins and Joan Mir are both sidelined due to injuries.

“I have a limit, but I feel ready,” he said. “I thought I would be prepared to race, especially in Germany after the warm-up crash, as initially I felt prepared to go.

“But over time, the pain intensified, especially in my ankle and fractured thumb.

“I also felt peculiar as there was a crack in my second rib. This will likely be the source of most discomfort this weekend.

“Nevertheless, we will aim to make a gradual start and see how things progress. It was also crucial for me to be here, since Honda’s two main riders, Mir and Rins, are injured.
