 In News

The Autodromo Internacional do Algarve hosted the second day of the official test in Portimao, on a Sunday of intense but satisfying work for the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2. Augusto Fernandez placed in third position, showing that, despite experiencing discomfort in his left hand, he is adjusting well to his 2022 bike.

Augusto completed a solid day of work, which helped him to gain comfort and confidence onboard his bike. The Spanish rider was also very competitive and consistent with his pace throughout the day, and placed third overall from the three sessions with a personal best of 1:42.003. Fernandez completed a total of 59 laps of the Portuguese track on Sunday.

The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 duo will contest the last of the three days of testing in Portimao on Monday.

“I felt very good throughout the day. I’m happy because we have taken a step forward, especially in terms of my comfort on the bike. We are quite fast, but also today we have been more consistent and have understood more what I am doing on the bike. We are improving every time that we go out, in terms of our feeling and our pace with the hard tyres, which is something that is important for us. We still have things to improve, but I’ll take away the fact that we are maintaining constant progress.”
