Repsol Honda Team return to action in Qatar

The second round of the 2021 MotoGP World Championship will take place this weekend in Qatar. After making his debut as a Repsol Honda Team rider last Sunday, Pol Espargaró will try to improve on the eighth position that he claimed in the opening race when the Doha GP is contested. Espargaró is adapting well to the Honda RC213V already has a first eight points to his name.

On the other side of the box, Stefan Bradl will continue as a replacement for Marc Márquez, who is still recovering from injury. The German kicked off the 2021 season with an eleventh place and five points last time out.

Both riders have stated that one of the main objectives for this weekend will be to improve their position on Sunday’s starting grid. The action will get underway with Free Practice on Friday.

Declaraciones de los pilotos


“We get ready to go again. Last week we had a positive start, but this is not the position we should be fighting for. The goal is to make another step this week and now having done a race, I am feeling much more prepared and have a clearer idea of what to expect. During the race we were able to see our strengths and our weaknesses. We still need to work on Qualifying to be further ahead on the grid so we can have a better chance of a clean first lap. The journey has just started and now it’s time to pick up the pace.”


“Another week in Qatar, after last year it feels quite normal to have two races at the same circuit. Certainly, Qualifying will be one major area to focus on alongside the normal jobs of a race weekend. If we can put together a solid weekend, the top ten is within our reach. Now that everyone has so much track time here, it will not be easy but we know our potential. I don’t want to leave anything on the table for this second race.”
