REPSOL HONDA TEAM | MOTOGP

After a season marked by the pandemic, Puig will continue to sponsor the Repsol Honda for the sixth consecutive year during the 2021 season.

The 2020 season was full of progress by Alex Márquez and Stefan Bradl.

After nine long months of recovery, the eighth champion Marc Márquez gets back on the bike this season. He will share the box with the newcomer Pol Espargaró, excited to get on board of the Honda.

MARC MÁRQUEZ

Marc Márquez is eight times world champion (in 125cc and Moto2 classes as well as 6 times in MotoGP) and he has been the youngest rider to win a MotoGP World Championship and be crowned king of the main class.

Reviewing his career, during the 2014 season, he added 13 victories, the most victories in a single season, improving the previous mark set by Repsol Honda rider Mick Doohan in 1997.

The 2015 season was Marc's most difficult year in MotoGP, as he finished third. But even so he managed to get five victories, nine podiums and eight poles.

The 2016 MotoGP World Championship crowned Marc as the youngest rider to win 3 championships in the premier class, adding to his record 5 titles in all classes in just 9 seasons.

In 2017, Márquez won his fourth MotoGP world championship, after his only rival, Andrea Dovizioso, crashed in the Valencia race.

At 24 years and 268 days, Marc Marquez took the record from Mike Hailwood, who was 25 years and 107 days old when he won his fourth first-class title in 1965.

Notably, Marc is the first rider in the 69-year history of the Motorcycle Grand Prix to win five races per season over eight years.

In 2020, Márquez went through his worst season to date due to a broken humerus in the first race. As a consequence, he was away from the asphalt for nine long months until his reinstatement in this same 2021 season.

POL ESPARGARÓ

Pol Espargaró has established himself as one of the most consistent riders in Grand Prix races since his debut in 2006. Born in Granollers, the youngest of two racing brothers, he burst onto the scene after national success and has continued to increase his profile since then.

He has rarely finished outside of the top ten. Espargaró has shown the speed and talent to fight for victory in all classes and claimed the Moto2 World Championship in 2013 after a long battle with Scott Redding.

Making his MotoGP debut on a Yamaha satellite, Pol Espargaró typically raced with the factory teams before moving to KTM to help them develop their MotoGP machine.

After working to become a podium contender, Pol joins the prestigious Repsol Honda Team in 2021 alongside Marc Márquez.

HONDA RC213V 2021

The initial concept of the RC213V continues to apply since its introduction in 2012.

For 2021 the chassis has been modified in its rigidity and balance, designed to achieve maximum compatibility between turning and stability. The double-beam aluminum chassis is immensely lightweight, yet provides the ideal stiffness and strength characteristics necessary to contain and deliver over 180kw from the RC213V's engine to the rear tire. In addition to strength, the chassis features just the right amount of flexibility carefully designed to improve tire grip.

HRC has adopted a 1000 RC213V rated 4 cylinder “V” engine that can exploit full power while remaining durable enough for all 19 races in one season. HRC has revised every detail of the new engine, making it lighter, with more power and driver-friendly features.

For 2021, winter engine development was banned due to rule changes, meaning HRC will continue to use the 2020 spec engine in the upcoming season.

For 2021, the RC213V is equipped with front and rear Öhlins suspension. By providing the essential link between the wheel and the chassis, the suspension's job is to keep the tire in contact with the ground and produce maximum grip as the machine hits the thousands of bumps and ripples encountered with every turn. It is a crucial link in the performance chain and, for this reason, both Repsol Honda riders are assigned a dedicated Öhlins technician. Working closely together, HRC and Öhlins continually seek to make improvements.

The lightweight carbon fiber bodywork plays an important role in making the RC213V as aerodynamic as possible. The 2021 RC213V has a modified fairing to achieve maximum performance by balancing acceleration, handling and braking through airflow management. In recent years, aerodynamic "spoilers" have played an increasingly important role in MotoGP and are some of the most visible changes between each season.

MotoGP tires are exclusively supplied by Michelin. Each round presents a new challenge for the tire supplier due to the designs of the tracks and the surface of the circuit.

The carbon fiber front brakes are provided by Brembo. These carbon brakes produce incredible stopping power, which in turn creates fantastic images of riders entering a corner with the front wheel and pushing to the limit. In wet conditions, some riders continue to use carbon brakes, while others choose to use steel brake discs that can operate at a lower temperature. Yutaka supplies these steel brake discs for the RC213V. In both wet and dry conditions, external covers and cooling ducts are sometimes added to help regulate brake temperature.
