Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 experienced mixed fortunes at the Australian Grand Prix. Augusto Fernandez, who was on the front row, occupied the podium spots before crashing out with ten laps to go.

Augusto started the Moto2 race from the front row of the grid for the ninth time this season. The Red Bull KTM Ajo rider dropped down to fourth place off the line, but managed to recover and regained second, trying to catch up with the race leader. After several laps riding in third, just behind his teammate, Augusto crashed when both were riding at a high pace and was unable to rejoin the race. He is second in the overall standings with 238.5 points.

The next round of the Moto2 World Championship will be the Malaysian Grand Prix, held at the Sepang International Circuit from October 21st-23rd.


“It was not the end to the race that we had hoped for. It was a very strange crash, but sometimes these things happen. It makes me angry, because we were fighting for the podium and there were important points at stake. I feel very strong for the upcoming races and want to fight for victory. We are working well, we have very clear ideas and we will continue fighting until the end of the season”.
