Rins: "Ducati did not offer me an official motorcycle for next year; Honda, yes"

Last week, Motorsport.com anticipated the approach that had taken place between Alex Rins and Honda, which will finally end with the arrival of the Spaniard at LCR, the satellite team of the golden wing brand, with a view to next season.

According to the pilot himself, the agreement has not yet been sealed with the signature, even though he does not even contemplate the possibility that things go wrong.

Rins will join Lucio Cecchinello’s squad after signing a contract as a Honda rider, which will bind him to the Japanese manufacturer for the next two years. Although it is not yet official, there he should coincide again with Joan Mir, his workshop neighbor at Suzuki, who is taken for granted that he will stop at the official workshop of the Tokyo factory, next to Marc Márquez.

The experience of the three riders would have to be the pillar on which to project a prototype competitive enough for Honda to get out of the hole in which it is stuck.

“With the signing of Alex Márquez by Gresini, everyone can imagine where I will race next year. My hiring is not official yet, but we are very close. Only the last signature is missing”, agreed Rins, shortly after getting off the bike in Assen, where he crossed the finish line in tenth place, on a Sunday in which any option he might have was reduced to ashes at the start: He started ninth and crossed 15th the first lap.

The Barcelona native had three options for the future on the table, once Suzuki announced, after the Spanish Grand Prix, that he would leave the championship at the end of 2021. Rins, who has the support of Estrella Galicia as the main sponsor, chose between allying with RNF, going to Gresini or signing for LCR. The

Having the same material as the members of the official team is the element that tipped the scales.

“I valued the option of Ducati, with Gresini, and that of Honda, but Ducati did not give me an official bike and Honda did offer me that possibility. It’s an interesting project, because the bike isn’t doing very well in terms of results, so we’ll see what we can do”, declared the #42, convinced of everything he can contribute to the Japanese manufacturer: “I like the challenge that is presented to me in front of. We did a very good job with Suzuki, so we will try to do just as good with Honda.
