Ernest Riveras asked the Catalan pilot about his arrival at Sling and Pol assured that: “At the point where I decided to switch to Honda and go find this new project, it was because I really believed it was better, then you can’t regret it anymore because, in that moment, you choose what you think is best for you & rdquor ;. ‘Polyccio’ was clear that he wanted to become an official rider of the Japanese brand: “I wanted to be there, I think it was my future, my future should be going through being at Repsol Honda,” said the Catalan.
Marc Márquez, a Honda veteran, is Pol’s teammate this season and regarding his bond with the eight-time world champion he stated that: “our relationship has gone from more to less and from less to more again depending on the competitiveness that we have had between the two of us & rdquor;. But he assures that today their relationship has improved: “now we have a very good relationship and we don’t have to be friends, go to dinner together … But inside the box, have a cordial relationship, that will help the harmony within the box be homogeneous and good & rdquor; stated ‘Polyccio’.
Pol Espargaró has also spoken about the times his withdrawal has been raised: “There was a season, my first season in Moto2, that was the hardest season of my sports career. At that time, many times I thought about whether it was worth it, for the effort, the sacrifice, the injuries, etc. & rdquor ;. In MotoGP, despite having difficult moments, everything improved with his relationship with the KTM team: “Everyone leaned on me, I received incredible support, incredible esteem and that is what kept me fighting for those engineers and mechanics who they wanted the same or more results than me but, without a doubt, they were hard years & rdquor; remembered the Catalan.
Apart from motorcycles, Pol has other hobbies that he often lets his followers see through his social networks, such as playing the piano or cross stitching: “I play a lot, as much as my daughter and my training in home. I really like & rdquor; Pol highlights. Regarding his curious love for cross stitching, he explains that “We had activities within the school, of different subjects, and one of them was cross stitch and I really liked it a lot and now it still works for me because when my pants or a shirt break I can sew a button on a shirt & rdquor; Catalan concludes.
