By Rob Lancaster

Jerez, July 25: Marc Marquez remains on course to race in the Andalusia Grand Prix after it was confirmed he will be participating in FP4 at Jerez.

Less than a week after undergoing surgery on a broken arm, the six-time MotoGP champion astonishingly took part in FP3 on Saturday after being medically cleared to ride.

Marquez fractured his right humerus following an accident late on in the season-opening Spanish Grand Prix, which was won by Fabio Quartararo.

After undergoing surgery in Barcelona, the 27-year-old returned to Jerez and - a mere six days on from suffering his injury - completed 18 laps at Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto.

After finishing over a second shy of Maverick Vinales' track-record time posted during the session, Repsol Honda announced the Spaniard would make a decision over whether to continue.

Around an hour later, the team confirmed he will be back on the bike again, tweeting: "We will see @marcmarquez93 back on track for FP4."

Marquez won 12 races last season on his way to winning the title by a sizeable margin, finishing 151 points clear of nearest rival Andrea Dovizioso.
