The Austrian firm, in principle, is for the task of keeping it in the intermediate category, but, in the past, for example with Iker Lecuona, they announced him for the KTM Ajo in Moto2 and he ended up moving up. Something similar happened with Raul Fernandez a few months ago. Now, the Central Europeans have even allowed themselves, through the mouth of their boss Pit Beirer, criticize Remy Gardner and Raúl, champion and runner-up last year. In Tech3 there may be a free place because the other will be for Pol Espargaró. Could they promote Acosta? Pedro himself replies resoundingly: “No.” And when reminding him that they already did it before, El Tiburón de Mazarrón, continues bluntly: “It is not the case. Moto2, Moto2”.

Because the Murcian is firm in his convictions: this 2022, of learning; 2023 to assault the crown and make the jump in 2024. That is also in his contract with KTM, but Mattighoffen’s sometimes vary everything to his liking. The rookie is not altered even when he is 58 points behind the first. “The title? Are you already putting pressure and puncturing? This year is not the goal. In the end, I have another year left here and next year is when you really have to ask me if I’m going to fight for the title. I think that the learning that we are doing and having the rider who is the fastest in the category now next to the box, I think that the only thing that makes me grow faster and learn faster for next year. Everything is positive, whether I win or he wins, it comes out as it comes out “, he affirms.

Aspects to improve

Acosta believes that he still needs to improve in certain aspects to aspire to everything and he is close. “In the end, the same thing I had yet to learn from Moto3: the qualifying sessions. We are suffering there. Augusto, just as he knows how to set pace, knows how to position himself for a fast lap. It is no longer going fast or not, it is positioning. He is, in quotes, a very old dog, he knows what to do to do it, so starting later would have made life easier for us in races like Barcelona, ​​Jerez… but what’s done is done. We’re not going to change anything by crying,” he assures.

Great relationship with Augustus

And within that progression, Pedro would love to continue with the Balearic by his side. The treatment is very good. “You can rarely have a relationship like the one we have with a teammate. When there is this rivalry, it is difficult to have this relationship. As we saw in the second free practice, he helped me; in various situations I help him him. I think the only thing it does is that we both go up and not that we have silly fights inside the box,” he says.

Praise to Izan Guevara

The ‘rookie’ also praised a rival of his life: Izan Guevara. “He is taking Moto3 to another extreme because the race in Germany is to take his hat off. In the end, we didn’t see any like this last year. I think he is deserving of that title,” he concluded.
