Born to ride! Rookie revelations steal the Qatar spotlight

Moving up a class, where Sam Lowes reigned supreme in the desert, there was even more joy for Aki Ajo’s squad, where Raul Fernandez earned himself a first ever rostrum in Moto2™. The Madrid rider was often the king of Free Practice and qualifying in the lightweight class, and by the looks of things, he has little intention of relinquishing that title despite dealing with 765 cc engines this season. At the Qatar GP he earned a P2 start which resulted in a more than respectable fifth place finish, while at the Doha GP he went from P4 to P3 in another very impressive performance. He will certainly be one to keep a very keen eye on over the next few rounds.
