Repsol Honda Team move on to Austria

The 4.3km Spielberg track will host an event in which the Repsol Honda Team riders will continue working to improve their current situation.

Pol Espargaró comes into the Austrian Grand Prix after scoring points at Silverstone, and with the aim of improving his results. In the 28-lap race on Sunday, the Repsol Honda Team rider will try to repeat the good performance he had at the circuit during the 2020 season, where he achieved pole position and was third in the race.

Stefan Bradl continues to work on the RC213V to improve his setup. The German rider will take advantage of Marc Márquez’s visit to Austria to study all the aspects in which he can work together with the team of mechanics and engineers.

Rider statements


“Races in Austria always seem to be very dramatic but it is always a nice weekend. It’s a very particular lay out with a lot of very heavy braking, very stop and go and only a few corners. Let’s see how we perform this weekend, the Repsol Honda Team and HRC are working a lot to improve our situation. I am interested to see how the new chicane feels, the run to the top of the hill was very fast so I think this will be quite different. Our objective is to put together a smooth weekend and qualifying better, that’s key.”


“It’s nice to race in Austria again, the fans always give me a very warm welcome. I have some good experience at the track over the last few years so it won’t be like in Silverstone where I had to remember the track. With shorter tracks like this, the gaps in MotoGP get even smaller so you really have to work on finding every single tenth because it can make a big difference in practice and for the grid.”
