Any head injury risks long term problems, something very rarely considered, if at all, because we keep seeing people being knocked on the head in movies and getting up minutes later, running around without any impairment - short or long term. After suffering a large number of falls in which he banged his head during his career, Christian Sarron once drove off and left his brother at a service station, forgetting he had been with him on the journey. I hope Marquez makes a full recovery. We've already had enough reminders last season of how close to the edge bike racing is, with the threat of career or life threatening injuries around every corner.

I had an accident about 8 years ago and hit my head hard my sight now has permanent damage in a similar way to Marc's so good luck lad rooting for you.

I really hope that this isn't a permanent problem for marc.

Noticed he didn't mention Brad in his list of title contenders.... Come on Bradley, wipe the floor with him!

Dear oh dear, this definately doesn't sound good! If Marc has detached his retina then that is bad, very bad and could result in the end of his career! Obviously, good vision is vital in this sport as not only is Marc's life at risk, but that of everyone else on the track! What a shame for the young lad!

I had a bad accident when I was 17 (got truncheoned by an over zealous policeman whilst protesting) and lost the hearing in one ear. This destroyed my motorcycle racing career as it affected my balance.

The hype machine failed.

His advantage in having the only 2012 spec parts on his bike was manufactured by Spaniards desperate for a new hero.

All the other MOTO2 riders on Suter machines struggled all season long with chatter, Marquez had it cured, yet mysteriously the parts were not made available to the other teams..... making MM look very good in the closest championship.

If and when Marc gets back to racing, I think he is in for a shock! All the riders he "stuffed up" last year will more than likely be in much better positions to return the "favours"!!
