Season 2022

AF37 Moto2 World Champion

AF37 Campeón del Mundo de Moto2

With a season in Moto2, more like a Hollywood script, the world championship already has its King of Moto2, Augusto Fernández. The emotion of the great movie that we have experienced was maintained until the last race at the

Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia, a race where suffering and uncertainty touched their maximum splendor until lap 9, when Ai Ogura, Japanese rider of the Idemitsu Honda Team Asia, he went to the ground. Until the latter assaulted, Augusto Fernández, from Red Bull KTM Ajo, had to wait to savor the maximum glory. With Augusto starting third and Ogura fifth, the ‘poleman’ Alonso López, from Beta Tools SpeedUp, started with a very successful diagonal trajectory to prevent Pedro Acosta, Augusto‘s teammate, from putting the wheel in and attacking his position, something which ended up happening before the end of the first round. Alonso did not take kindly to this overtaking and returned it with an action to the limit that relegated the Murcian to fourth place, with Tony Arbolino leading the race with Ogura behind him. The Japanese starred in an impeccable start that led him to be ahead of his main rival for the title who was running fifth. The tension increased and with 20 laps to go the title was reduced to 0.5 points. Ogura continued to ride in the wake of an Arbolino, while Augusto moved up to sixth, after overtaking Beaubier. The American went to the ground moments later. At that time, the ‘Ace’ up his sleeve was held by Acosta who had proven to be faster than Ogura throughout the weekend. However, the Japanese, who had nothing to lose just to win, forced and fought until he ended up going to the ground. Something that mathematically gave Augusto Fernández the title with 18 laps to go.

Finally, with more calm and a lot of intelligence on the part of all the riders, the race victory was awarded to Acosta, while the last podium of the course was completed by the new Moto2 World Champion, Augusto Fernández, and Arbolino. This Moto2 movie has had a happy ending for the Red Bull KTM Ajo team, which has proven to be the most solid in the championship, with two great riders Augusto and Acosta who have a lot to say in the future.
