Will Marquez's broken leg slow him down?

Afte a flat track training crash, world champion Marc Marquez is currently sitting out the final Sepang test while he recovers from his broken leg. But the rookie champion has proven time and again that he bounces right back from injury; so, with the opening round of 2014 only weeks away, how will he fare come Qatar?

 I've voted that it will make no diffrence whatsoever, particularly as pyschologically it didn't even hapen on a MotoGP bike.

Saying that, I think he would actuallly have more chance of winning the championship this year if he did slow down a bit. He rode his luck last year big time, and as his recent injury shows, luck is finite.

 Same for me, he is though mentally and his accident was as he put it himself "unfortunate", nothing to do with the risks he will take on the GP bike.

I expect him to be more mature, make less mistakes than last year and be as fast.

Initially

It may slow him down a fraction at the first race, the thought of not wanting to come off and re-injure the leg... But cant see it making much more of a difference than that.  Great racers are great regardless, and can do amazing things so soon after injury.

Second season syndrome, this will test him - last year he nearly walked it but I think we'll see what he's really got in his locker - I don't think he will lead as many races a he did last year, it's always more tricky defending a title than winning one

No

He broke his leg in a flat track crash. Why should he be scared of a MotoGP bike because of that?

History repeating itself

 The comparison between Marquez & Kenny Roberts both winning their respective championships in their rookie year draws even more comparisons ,in 79 Roberts broke his back testing the 500 yamaha,& Marquez in training ,Roberts missed the 1st race & still won the championchip,you can bet that Marquez will still win it too.
