MotoGP Pol Espargaró and the new generation: “they don’t respect danger as much as the rest of us” – MotoGP


Pol Espargaró is gearing up for a 2022 season that will be brutal for the weak. Indeed, it is the 2023 horizon that will be scrutinized in MotoGP, and from the first moments. No weakness should be shown to keep his handlebars or conquer another. Precisely the Moto2 World Champion version 2013 knows that he is sitting on a shooting saddle. His first year as Marc Marquez’s teammate was less depressing than his predecessors, but he failed to convince the Honda staff that he could make up for the eight-time world champion’s absence. Quartararo and Mir, the last two world champions, roam around in his RC213V, which inspires him these words …

Pol Espargaró is one of the pilots who may be concerned about their future. And it doesn’t matter if their current suit is relatively new. Time flies in Grand Prix, an unforgiving world, which he accepts by illustrating it like this: I am privileged, I have a life I could never have imagined, a comfortable life thanks to my profession, my sport, I am a world champion, I have an incredible family and I am fine He begins. Then he adds: ” but all i have is because i am where i am. Obviously it’s a set of musical chairs here, here there are only a few chairs and only a few pilots, and who is faster sits in the chair “.

He ends his demonstration thus: it’s this fear i have of losing everything i have, everything I’ve achieved in my sports career in these 16 years and that because of a bad year everything I’ve built goes into the water “.

One of these pilots whose contract is expiring is Pol Espargaró, which will have to ensure its future through results.

And it won’t be easy, because the new generation that gives points is special. Pol Espargaró defines it like this: ” the new generations have good and bad things, just like me when I arrived in MotoGP at the age of 21.
