HRC team manager Alberto Puig has dismissed claims from the Moto2™ rider camp that talks have taken place, but a well-known name could be in line for a return.

Less than 24 hours after Moto2™ star Fermin Aldeguer (GT Trevisan Speed Up) emerged as a contender for the vacant Repsol Honda seat, team manager Alberto Puig came out and vehemently denied negotiations, but suggested That Pol Espargaro is in the mix. ,

“They all have the ability to go racing, but that’s the first I’ve heard of that, so I’m pretty sure Albert has talked to Pol. I’m not in Pol Espargaro’s mind. I think Pit Bayer will be in Qatar next week. Coming and if the Poles need to do something then they will have to go and see what is happening.
