After finishing in the Top 10 in the last two races, the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto3 rider is working to take another step forward and challenge for wins. The Moto3 rookie has 100 points and is in eighth position overall.

“The Japanese Grand Prix did not end the way we would have liked. I felt very good in the race and was able to lead for many laps. Unfortunately, the crash took away our opportunity to fight for the win. We have to arrive in Indonesia with a clear mind and focused on this weekend to try for victory again.”

“We are going to another circuit that we don’t know, and this is going to be the trend for this part of the season. We will continue learning. The conditions this weekend are going to be similar to the previous tracks, with a lot of heat, so we will have to adapt as soon as possible to get a good setup and find a good feeling.”
