The Repsol Honda team has officially presented its project for the 2021 season MotoGP. After a very difficult campaign for the official structure of Honda due to the injury of Marc Márquez, a circumstance that left the team without a victory for the first time since 1982, the HRC project is reborn from its ashes with the aim of fighting again for the title of drivers, teams and brands. With a continuist livery marked by Repsol colors, Márquez and Espargaró’s Honda RC213Vs are ready to fight for the most ambitious goals in the hands of two of the fastest riders in the category.
Not surprisingly, much of the focus during the presentation has been on Marc Márquez: «The recovery is step by step, I feel better. You have to continue little by little, grow at work. Every time I see the doctors it’s good news, but we don’t know when I’ll be ready. I am optimistic and I want to be on the bike as soon as possible. I miss the whole team, the races, the adrenaline and even the things I hated. It is the first time I have been 10 months without riding a motorcycle. The first time it won’t be 100%. I don’t know if it will take me a career, two or six months to be the same Marc. My goal would normally be to win the championship and fight for it, but in 2021 it will be different».

For its part, Pol Espargaró has added: “For me it is important to have everything more or less under control. I know that in this sport having everything under control is almost impossible, but I like to do my best. The first time I saw Marc I think it was the first time he was riding a racing motorcycle. We were very young, but I remember it very well. And since then we have had great battles. I remember the one in Estoril, but I really enjoyed it. Now we are teammates. I don’t know what to expect, because there aren’t many tests and we have an adaptation process to follow. Nevertheless, I am focused on achieving my dreams in this team».
