Temporada 2024

MotoGP starts in Qatar

Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 sat back and watched their dynamic Spanish double-act display bravery, judgement and skill at the Lusail International Circuit for the opening thrust of 2024 MotoGP. Augusto Fernandez strained every sinew to gain positions and make progress with his competitiveness to eventually score 17th.

The Grand Prix of Qatar fired MotoGP engines in earnest for the first time in 2024. The Saturday Sprint was notable for Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 getting on the gas for their second world championship year but also much more. Augusto Fernandez was also looking for gains as he continues his adjustment to the 2024 spec of the GASGAS RC16.

The Spaniards had decent knowledge of the 5.4km resurfaced course courtesy of the 11-lap Sprint and the recent two-day test two weeks previously.

Augusto took the first step in refining his race package for the long season ahead and had a busy Grand Prix searching for the top fifteen: P17 was the final grade.
In contrast to the flat, speedy layout of LIC, the undulations of the Algarve International Circuit will involve a different prospect for the Grand Prix teams at the Grand Prix of Portugal in two weeks’ time.
Augusto Fernandez, 17th:
“A bit better. I know we are still far and we did not get any points today but this is the best feeling I’ve had yet this year with the 2024 bike. I’m starting to get the feedback and the team is working really hard to give me what I need and I’m working really hard to adapt if I need to bring something different to be quicker. We’ll take the positives, and we have a base to start with in Portimao.”
