The Moto2 World Championship season heads to Mugello this weekend, for the Italian Grand Prix. After having completed the first quarter of the 2022 season, the Red Bull KTM Ajo team face the eighth round of the season motivated and with the desire to continue making progress.

At the French Grand Prix, Augusto capped off a great weekend by taking his first win of the season. The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 talent was once again one of the riders with the fastest pace the whole weekend, at the sharp end in all practice sessions and winning the race unchallenged. He goes to Italy with the desire to carry this over for a good result at Mugello. Fernandez occupies the fifth position in the overall standings, with 69 points.

“The victory at Le Mans was the reward for the work we have done so far this season, in which I have felt strong from the start – especially in pre-season. We have been competitive at all the races so far. At Le Mans we were finally able to reflect how fast we had been in practice in the race, and we reaped the reward for all of our effort. Now it’s time to focus on the Italian GP, at a circuit that I really like – although, in terms of results, we haven’t had much luck there in the past. The goal, after having won in France, is to be back at the front. It will be important to start the weekend well, work as we have been doing so far and keep scoring as many points as possible.”
