Moto2: Marquez ruled out of test appearance

"The evolution of the injury has been positive. So right now we need to be patient."
The Repsol rider keeps improving from his sight problems but he is still not fully recovered.

2011 Moto2 World Championship runner-up Marc Marquez will not take part in this week's Jerez test, from Wednesday to Friday.

Medical checks last Thursday in Barcelona showed that Marquez is not yet fully recovered from the sight problem he suffered since his practice accident at the penultimate round of the championship in Malaysia.

Dr. Jordi Arruga, neuro-ophtalmologist of the Instituto Catalán de la Retina, confirmed that the double-vision is improving, but not yet fully corrected.

Team manager Emilio Alzamora commented: “As the doctors said, we cannot estimate how much time Marc will need to be completely recovered, although the evolution of the injury has been positive, as Dr. Arruga informed us. So right now we need to be patient”.

I hope he makes a full recovery. What worries me in this however is the fact that he was even allowed on track at Sepang after the accident. Who on earth pronounced him fit

First off, I don't know the physical cause of Marquez eye sight problems, so this might be unrelated, nevertheless I think it's worth asking... Why is it still acceptable that the visor flies off when a rider is tumbling through the gravel bed? There have been multiple bruises and cuts to riders eyebrows, so it would one of those nice, incremental, safety improvements to mandate better visor fixtures.
