The 2021 season is presented as one of the most competitive in recent times in MotoGP. After a complicated year, where the absence of Marc Márquez marked the agenda of the media, this championship is shaping up with several candidates. Pol Espargaro he will be one of the stars to follow closely, especially when he reaches the team Repsol Honda: «It is the best way to learn«Espargaró assured about the presence of Márquez in the first test.
It is still unknown, but Marc Márquez seems to be heading for his return. The multi-time MotoGP champion was already riding on the Barcelona and Portimao circuits, at the controls of a Honda RC213V-S, with a smaller cylinder capacity than that used in the official competition. However, the official announcement is long overdue, and Márquez’s team doctors continue to assess the physical situation.
This is why Pol Espargaró gave his opinion on the possible return of Márquez to the Honda motorcycle. Marc’s new partner assured in an interview for Catalan radio ‘Tot Costa’ that Márquez’s presence in Qatar will be essential for his progress. The relationship between the two drivers is very good and Pol wants to strengthen it on the track, achieving good results together.
I wish it were. We would all like it. We all need Marc on the track again, to know the limits and because he was always ahead. Having the best by my side, the only thing that makes me grow. I need someone fast, I need it. If one day I want to fight for the championship, the best way to learn is to have the best driver at my side, ”said Espargaró.
«If he’s afraid of (Márquez), you don’t want him to come back. All the drivers want to fight, and there are those who think that if he is not there, there are more numbers. I see it differently, I have the feeling that I need it on the other side of the box, because I do not see myself capable of developing a bike that I only took 4 days. I need the fastest rider, I need Marc in the box, ”added the new Repsol Honda rider to finish.
