Six-times MotoGP champion Marc Marquez will return to action at this weekend's Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas following his recovery from double vision suffered after a crash in Indonesia, Honda said on Wednesday.

Marquez did not race at the Indonesian Grand Prix, the second round of the season, after a crash in the warm-up session and also sat out the Argentine Grand Prix a week ago.

The 29-year-old suffered a similar episode at the end of last season after a concussion sustained in a training crash.

Honda said in a statement Marquez was returning after consultation and clearance from his medical team.

"Of course I am very happy to be back, it's a great feeling to return and especially to do it at one of my favourite tracks," Marquez said.

"We have some work to do after missing two races and the whole Argentina weekend, so I am not here to set one target at the moment. There's many things to do and consider, but the important thing is that we are back on the bike this weekend."
