Repsol Honda started the MotoGP World Championship season with the presence of Pol Espargaró in the top ten at the Qatar Grand Prix (eighth place), also seeing Stefan Bradl in 11th place. Thus, the main objective was met, since above all it was a test to learn and get to see the checkered flag.

The team leader, Alberto Puig, began by telling Repsol Media: ‘The strategy was to finish the race, this was the first and main objective. It was a difficult race, suddenly the temperatures dropped before the race after a day with strong winds. This is one of the unique aspects of racing in Qatar, conditions can change a lot. ‘

The official then said: ‘The plan was to get a good start and run at a good pace. In the first race of the year, it’s always about learning, about studying our rivals. We learned a lot in the tests, but the first race is always something different and it is important to pay attention. ‘
