Pol Espargaro To Repsol Honda 2021

Pol will be at Repsol with Marc in 2021. Looks like Cal may loose his seat at LCR.

KTM really liked having Pol and probably could have offered him a more lucrative contract... and I am not so sure Pol's riding style suits the Honda. As far as Cal goes, he could go to KTM..

Also with Jorge Martin going to Pramac, what is Ducati planning to do with Zarco?

It makes sense for Alex Marquez at least. Honda probably know how his pace compares with MM's at this stage, and given MM could likely waste most riders in premier class history by a second a lap if both were on the recent Honda being MM's team mate while learning a difficult bike in his first year in the premier class was unlikely to be enjoyable for either brother. It took a while for things to gel for Alex even in moto 2.

I think Alex's deal had more to do with keeping MM happy while negotiating a new contract..
