Bradl confirmed as Marc Marquez’s replacement for Catalan GP

Repsol Honda have confirmed that HRC Test Rider Stefan Bradl will be replacing Marc Marquez at this weekend’s Monster Energy Grand Prix. The German has once again been called up as the eight-time World Champion’s substitute as he heads to the United States of America for a fourth surgery on his right humerus. Bradl will join Pol Espargaro inside the Repsol Honda Team garage, their fifth race as teammates. This is the third time that Bradl will race in 2022, having taken 19th in Argentina and suffering a DNF in Jerez while running as a wildcard. Stefan Bradl: “First I want to wish Marc all the best with his operation and his recovery. I am here for everything that HRC and the Repsol Honda Team need until Marc’s return. The German will once again step up to the plate as injury cover for the injured eight-time World Champion. The German has proven more than adequate cover on several occasions for Repsol Honda and Marc Marquez.
