 In News

Fernandez was on the front row today and moved into the lead in the early stages of the Aragon Grand Prix. Whilst he would hold the position for a number of laps, the Red Bull KTM Ajo rider was eventually passed by his teammate and another rider, holding on to secure a podium finish in third. With 214 points, he remains the leader of the Moto2 World Championship.

Red Bull KTM Ajo travel to Japan this week to contest the sixteenth round of the season, held from September 23rd-25th at Motegi.


“I am happy with this podium. We increased the advantage in the title chase, so we are pleased about that. It is bittersweet for me, because I wanted to fight for the victory and I pushed hard from the beginning. At the end of the race I did not feel so comfortable and the front tyre prevented me from pushing more. Today was not the day to take more risks than necessary, but rather to score as many points as possible.”
