Augusto starts in champion positions

If this were football, instead of motorcycles, Augusto Fernández would be clamoring for the Ricardo Tormo circuit that of a referee! The time! And it is that the leader of Moto2 has started Friday’s day of the Valencia GP in champion positions. The Spaniard was second, behind his teammate Pedro Acosta and Ai Ogura, the only one who could ruin his title party, did so nine positions behind him, eleventh.

The advantage that the Red Bull KTM Ajo rider brings to the Valencia GP is 9.5 points over the IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia rider, which is worth a podium position, whatever it may be, in the event of a victory for his rival. Ogura, who is very good despite the huge mistake he made in Malaysia, where he crashed on the last lap when he was second and his rival fourth, has already shown in other GGPPs that he is a rider who goes from less to more throughout the weekend, with what is expected to go further.

It was surprising that Augusto was not able to improve on the morning time in the afternoon, but the result to begin with is ideal in any case. In addition, it is to be hoped that, if necessary, team orders prevail at Red Bull KTM Ajo and that Acosta lends a hand to his boxing partner if necessary.

We must highlight the good third of Alonso López, who again has in this circuit with the company of his father Paco Alonso, who has not had the luck to experience any of his son’s five World Cup podiums, despite having accompanied by a lot of GGPP. His presence gives rise to the joke between son and father to consider the possibility that he will not return to the circuits if he is not able to get on the podium this Sunday. See what happens.


And extraordinary is the ninth place for Borja Gómez, a driver who debuted in the World Championship two weeks ago in Malaysia, as a substitute for the injured Jorge Navarro. The 17-year-old from Murcia, on a circuit that he does know, begins to be able to leave his mark on his second appearance with a Moto2, because until Sepang he had never touched it. The pilot led by former World Cup player José Luis Cardoso is making merits so that the door of the World Cup will be opened wide for him next year. Let’s see if he finishes off in the remainder of the weekend.
