Pedro Acosta acknowledges that he will need to “put in the effort” to maintain his impressive streak at COTA.

Emerging as one of the standout performers in Qatar and Portimao, Pedro Acosta arrives at COTA aiming to expand on his inaugural MotoGP podium.

Acosta clinched his maiden premier class podium following an outstanding duel with reigning MotoGP champion Francesco Bagnaia.

The battle initially for fourth place took a turn when Maverick Vinales suffered a crash on the final lap, granting Acosta the coveted third spot.

COTA, known for its mix of twisty, flowing, fast, and slow sections, often produces unexpected outcomes. Nevertheless, Acosta boasts a strong record at the Texas circuit, having triumphed there in Moto2 last season.

Looking ahead to the upcoming race, Acosta stated, “After a very positive weekend in Portugal, we’re now heading to Austin. I’ve had the chance to train rigorously and analyze our last race, identifying our strengths and weaknesses.

“COTA is a fantastic circuit, but we’ll need to put in the hard work to stay on track with our main objectives. Let’s give it our all!”

While Acosta, Brad Binder, and Jack Miller have displayed impressive pace aboard their RC16 KTM machines, Augusto Fernandez has faced challenges with form and confidence this season.

Fernandez, who hasn’t matched the performance level of his teammate Acosta, aims to turn the tide this weekend.

Fernandez remarked, “Following two challenging rounds, I’m eager for the Austin race, where we’ll continue our efforts to enhance our performance and regain our rhythm with the bike.

“COTA is an incredible track, offering a thrilling ride, and I’m delighted to be back in the USA.

“Let’s persevere with our hard work and aim to swiftly return to our optimal form.”
