LCR Honda Castrol Team reveal 2021 livery

LCR Honda Castrol have become the latest team to show off their 2021 bike for the start of the new season.

In an online presentation, the team revealed the bike that rider Alex Marquez will take to the grid on in 2021.

Marquez joins the team after a rookie season at the Repsol Honda factory team, which showed signs of promise for the Spaniard.

Showing off the 2021 livery, there are signs of a classic HRC bike, with blue becoming more prominent on the LCR Honda Castrol this year.

Speaking in the presentation, the 24-year-old said he hopes to push for good results this year.

“When I saw it for the first time, which was today, it was amazing,” he said.

“It was an amazing feeling when I saw the bike, it’s really nice, special colours.

“I know LCR has a lot of history in the world championship, so to wear these colours is always a pleasure.

“As I said before, the look is important, but results are more important, so, always it’s nice to be in a good colours to try to make good results.”

Marquez scored two podiums in 2020, with second place in both France and Aragon, the only podiums Honda achieved across all of its teams throughout the year.

The Spaniard ended the season in 14th place in the championship standings, but will hope to push up the grid in 2021 after a positive end to 2020.

Although moving away from the factory Honda team, Marquez will be a factory-supported rider throughout 2021, giving him the tools to fight at the front-end of the grid.

The team have another livery to unveil, when the team shows off Takaaki Nakagami’s LCR Honda Idemitsu bike on Saturday morning.

The Repsol Honda factory team will then reveal their livery next Monday, with Marquez’s older brother Marc Marquez due to make his first official appearance since early on in the 2020 season after suffering a shoulder injury.
