In the atmosphere of cheering and congratulations to this end of the season, where everyone highlights the satisfaction of better shooting under the carpet pitfalls and disappointments, Aleix Espargaro's speech sounds like a false note. But the official has his spoken call that his Aprilia employer has already experimented with. His latest release on the Honda Repsol board, available since Jorge Lorenzo's retirement, will be a milestone …
Behind the scenes of the last Valencia Grand Prix was particularly hectic. It was first announced that a Jorge Lorenzo announced that he claimed his pension rights. A situation that immediately opened the debate about his legacy. Three pilots were running: Crutchlow Alex Marquez and Johann Zarco . It is the brother of Marc Marquez and especially the Moto2 world champion vintage 201
a situation that does not grieve Aleix Espargaró who says what he thinks of a Johann Zarco who started the season at KTM, as a teammate of his brother Pol … " If Honda decided to sign Alex Marquez, I think that would be the best decision. Alex is a Moto2 champion and Marc would be happy . "
The sequel is a more cutting edge:" people can say that Zarco deserves this bike, but for me it is not so I think if Zarco deserves this bike, Pol and I deserve ten times more. The attitude he showed this year was not professional for me "The people who are with me at Aprilia know how many times I cried last year and this year. But that's our job, it's our life ."
The pilot from RS-GP estimates at Todocircuito that Zarco did not respect the KTM population in the decision to leave the project at the end of the season: " There are many people behind us, with many families working very hard. A lot of money is spent on these projects. So stop and say "this bike is bad, I'm going home" to me, it doesn't deserve to go on the bike to the world's best team ".
