Raúl Fernández: "The correct approach is to focus on myself"

The Spaniard, who is making his debut this season in the premier class riding a KTM RC16 from the Tech3 team, was the fastest at the start of the shakedown test for testers and rookies that is held until this Wednesday in Sepang, a track that he did not step on since 2019, when he was racing in Moto3.

Fernández stopped the clock in a time of 2.00.898, which this Tuesday has managed to reduce a few thousandths, to 2.00.819, which has earned him to be fifth on the time sheet, led by Maverick Viñales, who as pilot of a team with concessions, Aprilia, can participate in these trials.

“The second day has been very positive for me as I continued with my adaptation process to the MotoGP category”, explained Raúl Fernández at the end of the day.

“We worked very well and took many laps to try to understand different things,” says the rider from Madrid, who after two days of testing last November in Jerez, is hardly the second time he has ridden the orange KTM prototype.

After finishing first on Monday, a certain atmosphere of euphoria has been unleashed around the options of this young rider, a budding talent. But the boy does not want applause.

“I think the correct approach is to concentrate on myself and do a lot of laps without changing the bike too much. This way I will adapt to the category in the most efficient way, so tomorrow, Wednesday, we will continue in the same direction,” assured the rider from San Martín . of the Vega .
