Colton Herta's dominant IndyCar win on the streets of St. Petersburg confirmed what rivals have long-suspected - that the second-generation racer is destined for stardom. But it was Herta's comments afterwards that gave perhaps the most interesting insight into a driver that will be around for a long time to come.

Espargaro launched from 13th on the grid but was unable to make much progress into the top 10, ultimately ending the race 11.7 seconds from the victory in 10th and trailing his Honda team-mate Marc Marquez.

The Spaniard says he was “just feeling really bad” in the 25-lap Jerez race and was unhappy with the performance of the RC213V.

“[I was] just feeling really bad, we have no traction, we have no turning and our speed is not good,” Espargaro said.

"Must be on the podium in every race" - Marquez puts Espargaro under pressure

 © Honda Marc Marquez and Pol Espargaro have met several times In the Honda factory team, Marc Marquez and Pol Espargaro are two longstanding rivals. The two Spaniards have dueled regularly since they started out in racing. At the beginning, Pol Espargaro was usually ahead of the game, as he is almost two years older than Marc Marquez. In the 125cc World Championship and later in the Moto2 and MotoGP , Marquez prevailed. Marquez puts a lot of pressure on his new teammate.

Guitarist Joe Trohman was the most vocal about everything, from the terms of the reunion to how it would be announced out to his role in the band from that point forward. He was determined to make sure his situation in the band had changed. Trust us, angry fans on Twitter chastising the guitarist for How hard will it be to go back to playing the old songs you had little input with after getting to do your own stuff? A hard thing about Fall Out Boy—especially for Patrick and I—[is that] we started the band at 17. I had no coping skills, no clear-formed ideas. I was a mess , so to speak. I wrote a few things here

Sub-Saharan Africa, one of the last regions of the world largely untouched by 'informal imperialism', was very attractive to Europe's ruling elites for economic and racial reasons. Britain, like most other industrial countries, had long since begun to run an unfavourable balance of trade (which was increasingly offset, however, by the income from overseas investments). There were several factors which created the impetus for the Scramble for Africa, most of these were to do with events in Europe rather than in Africa.

“I cannot ride smooth, my pace doesn’t come, I’m riding tight and trying to gain more and more in brakes.

“But then the brakes gave up and I go wide, because in the other areas we are a mess. It’s like this.”

Espargaro will have time to understand his issues on Monday during the post-race test at Jerez, though suggested he wasn’t too enthusiastic about HRC’s programme, noting: “I’m an employee of Honda and I’m going to do what they want me to try.

“I’m going to work with the package they want me to work on, but there is different ones [used] during the race, different Hondas.”

One of the most notable differences in Honda machinery during the Jerez weekend was that of LCR’s Takaaki Nakagami, who reverted a 2020-spec frame in a bid to find better rear grip.

In detail, the Spaniard was not able to join his new work tool at the Vorsaaisontest. Nevertheless, his impression after a few test days is already so good that he sees opportunities to achieve his long-term destination World Cup title.

“After the first-lap incidents, it was a bit of a mess . I knew it was going to be tricky, I did everything I could.” With regards to the clashes with Hamilton and Leclerc, he knows he was in the wrong, but actually didn’t know where the Monegasque driver was due to the speed he was travelling at following his late “But there was a bit of a nip there, on the front-right. So then with the flat spots, I gained a bit of understeer in the left-hand corner.

However, if KG was invited to speak, she did what she was asked to do. I don’t agree with how the body language was interpreted in this vid. It’s difficult dealing with these crowds, most of which were just chanting down the protesters. I don’t think Don “wanted out of there”, he was displaying patience. Shew, Kimberly G.. (however her last name is spelled) is a hot mess ! God bless Trump, Jr in this relationship. I’ve always thought Eric looks more like their dad, but I see Don Jr mimicking many of Trump, Sr’s mannerisms.

Though admitting in terms of handling he felt the 2021 chassis was better, Nakagami was comfortably top Honda in fourth in the race on the older frame.

Espargaro believes the fact all Honda riders are using different packages is causing problems in bettering the 2021 bike, stating: “I’m going on the test and trying to do different things.

“Let’s see what they want me to test, if we can improve the global situation.

“I think we’re going too much individually and not as a group. This in the end is hurting the group and that is not good.”

Espargaro believes this disparity in direction at Honda currently is adding to his own woes in understanding the bike because his “knowledge is zero”.

“The problem I have now, I don’t know If I’m good, if I’m bad, if it’s the bike or the package I’m using,” he said.

“Or it is my riding style? I don’t know what’s going on and I’m a little bit confused because it’s the same confusion in the factory at the moment in the package, in the style.

“And for me, I’m new, I have this confusing because I haven’t been trying a lot things.

“They work so big, but I’m so small at the moment.

“My knowledge is zero. I have the feeling they are working big, but because my knowledge is zero I cannot help them.

“They cannot help me, and I cannot check anything to try and help myself. Because we’re not going one way.”
