HRC Team Manager Alberto Puig rejected claims from the Moto2™ rider’s camp that talks have taken place, but a familiar name may be in line for a return.
The 2024 MotoGP™ silly season is still very much well and truly alive! Less than 24 hours after Moto2™ starlet Fermin Aldeguer (GT Trevisan Speed Up) emerged as a contender for the vacant Repsol Honda seat, Team Manager Alberto Puig has come out and emphatically denied talks have taken place but suggested that Pol Espargaro is in the mix.
“No, I don’t know where that came from. It’s 100% false. Yesterday I spoke to Aldeguer’s manager and I asked him where it came from and he didn’t know what to say,” said Puig when quizzed by Spanish broadcaster DAZN during Practice at the Malaysian GP.
