Moto3: The voices of the top 3
Jaume Masia (Ajo-KTM; 1.): “That was crazy! We already did a good job during the test, but it wasn’t easy to divide up the race properly. The wind was blowing very hard, which made it difficult for me, especially when I was right at the front. The last lap went perfectly. So we can go on. ”
Pedro Acosta (Garlic-KTM; 2.): “It’s an incredible feeling and the reward for the hard work by Red Bull and Repsol. I have to thank Aki for the chance that I can drive here.”
Darryn Binder (Petronas-Honda; 3.): “In turn 12 on the last lap the wind was very strong and I had to go far. Then I gave it my all, but it wasn’t quite enough on the line. Still, it was a really good first race for me on a Honda with pole. Position and a podium. I can’t complain. “
