Why Espargaro faces Marquez with no fear at Honda
By:

Pol Espargaro will face the toughest challenge of his racing career pairing up with six-time MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez at Honda in 2021 - should Marquez be fit. But his toil during his four-year KTM stint has readied him for the fight

The 2021 rider market was always poised to be one of the most unpredictable with most contracts up for grabs at the end of the 2020 campaign. But there were few who had money on Pol Espargaro departing KTM to join Honda alongside Marc Marquez, whom HRC renewed for an unprecedented four years early in 2020.

When the dust had settled after the news, first revealed by Motorsport.com, had broken, it didn't take long for reason and logic to take hold. The Honda is a difficult bike, requiring an aggressive riding style to extract the best from. In that respect, it wasn't that far removed from the KTM - though of course, when racing finally got underway the RC16 emerged as a much friendlier bike from previous years.
