Pol Espargaro shares his thoughts on the Honda rumours

The Spaniard spoke to DAZN_ES about his MotoGP™ title dreams, how his riding style is similar to Marc Marquez and Honda switch talk

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Pol Espargaro was a guest on DAZN_ES to talk through his 2013 Moto2™ World Championship clinching race – Japan 2013.

And while on the show, the younger Espargaro brother spoke about his dream of adding the premier class title to his trophy cabinet: “All of the riders on the grid, from the first to the last - and if he says no, he’s a liar - dreams of being World Champion and they are there to improve their situation, to get a better bike and to fight for the title. It’s my only obsession. I train every day not to win races but to win the MotoGP™ world title. After all I’ve given, I believe that I deserve it and I believe that I’ve worked enough to get it, and that’s why I keep fighting.”

The conversation then moved onto Pol Espargaro’s riding style, and whether he’d be a good fit for the reigning World Champions: Honda. There has been quite a lot of chat in the media about a potential move to HRC for the Spaniard, and he shared his thoughts with DAZN_ES: “Ultimately it’s all gossip right now. Maybe I’ll get on the KTM now and the results will be incredible, and I wouldn’t leave for all the gold in the world,” said Espargaro. “The Honda is quite an aggressive bike, that I could be adapted quite well to my riding style.

“The Honda is quite an aggressive bike, that I could be adapted quite well to my riding style. I think that Marc (Marquez) and I ride in a similar way, with the weight really off the bike. That helps the bike, even if the steering moves or closes, you can save those falls. We have pretty similar riding styles.”

The 2021 rider market has already started taking shape at the likes of Repsol Honda Team, Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP and Team Suzuki Ecstar. But there’s plenty of seats still up for grabs as MotoGP™’s ‘silly season’ starts to rumble.
