Pedro Acosta’s display in the Qatar MotoGP continues to earn praise.

Following the Qatar MotoGP, Red Bull GASGAS Tech 3 rider Pedro Acosta became the topic of conversation for many.

Consistently within the top five throughout the race, the rookie sensation was truly outstanding.

Acosta demonstrated exactly why the hype surrounding him is well-deserved. Despite slipping to ninth place late in the race, the future looks promising for the reigning Moto2 champion.

Reflecting on his rider’s performance, Team Manager Nicolas Goyon remarked, “The Red Bull GASGAS Tech3 team had an emotionally charged opening round.

“When Pedro Acosta secured a spot in Q2 on Saturday and finished P8 in the Tissot Sprint, it was already a successful weekend. However, today’s race was the pinnacle of MotoGP!

“Pedro rode an exceptional race for his MotoGP debut, climbing up to fourth place before easing back slightly. It’s an incredible feat for a rookie.

“He battled with MotoGP’s top names, a monumental achievement for which we can only congratulate him.

“Pedro was pleased with his bike’s performance today, a testament to the work done by Pierer Mobility and the team this weekend and throughout the winter. We have a competitive bike to contend at the front.”

“Lastly, a big thank you to Pedro for his dedication; he has a promising future ahead, and we are only just getting started.”


Goyon also addressed the performance of Acosta’s teammate, Augusto Fernandez, who struggled and couldn’t match the rookie’s pace.

“On the other side of the garage, we observed some progress from Augusto Fernandez,” Goyon noted. “He felt a bit more comfortable today, but we still have a long way to go, and we’re aiming for more.”

“At the moment, the approach is to take it step by step to reach the level we’re aiming for,” Goyon continued.

Fernandez shared his thoughts and acknowledged that his performance in the grand prix was “slightly improved,” though not as much as he had hoped.

“We weren’t able to secure points today, still a distance away, but our feeling was a bit better, and for now, we should take that as a positive,” Fernandez commented.

“The team is putting in a tremendous effort to provide me with the right setup, and I’m also doing everything I can to adapt and improve my pace,” he added.

“Let’s focus on the positives; today was the best day on the bike for me since pre-season testing. We have a good foundation to build on, so let’s continue working towards our goals in Portugal.”
