Aki Ajo lives a special moment with his teams in Moto3 and Moto2. The Finn dares to compare his revelation rider, Pedro Acosta, with an old acquaintance, Marc Márquez.

Pedro Acosta has become the revelation rider of the season. In his debut year, the Murcian has become the rival to beat for the rest of the Moto3 grid, many already dare to compare with Marc Márquez in his debut. Aki Ajo, a talent scout who has been able to launch other riders to stardom in the past, has spoken about the sweet time he is currently going through with his riders in Moto3 and Moto2.

A good time for Red Bull KTM Ajo

Pedro Acosta, Jaume Masiá, Raúl Fernández and Remy Gardner, a good moment for the Aki Ajo team who leads the championship in Moto3 and Moto2. “Sometimes this good years come out, but it is still too early to believe that it will be like this all season, so we have to keep working.” And when asked about a harvest similar to this one, he says: “Maybe 2016. Let’s see if it continues.” A year in which he won two world titles with Johann Zarco in Moto2 and a very young Brad Binder in Moto3.

However, Ajo can be proud of his great signing, Pedro Acosta. The Murcian is already considered the revelation driver of the season. Ajo thus remembers a young Marc Márquez with whom he resembles Acosta in his way of acting. “He is a different rider, that is clear, and it is true that he has things from Marc Márquez, even if they are different. How are they alike? In that they have the ability to learn a lot and quickly despite his youth, but he is very young and we have to wait ”.

Many take for granted the move from Spanish to Moto2 after his great season, some have even ventured that Valentino Rossi was interested in him for the next season. Information that Aki Ajo himself does not want to confirm but leaves the door open. It is too early to say if Pedro has to go up to Moto2 next season. He has to go step by step and without haste. We’ll see “.
