Moto3: Meet the rookies: #4 – Raúl Fernández

Next on the list is a fairly familiar face around the paddock these days, FIM CEV Moto3 2018 World Champion Raúl Fernández.

Fernández claimed the 2018 title after scoring three victories over the season as well as three podiums and five top 10s, finally claiming the title with an impressive 209 points to Sergio García’s 132 in second position. However, Fernández didn’t just have CEV to focus on as he made several appearances in the Moto3 field.

The Spaniard made three wildcard appearances throughout the 2018 season in Catalunya, Jerez and Valencia. He also went on to replace Darryn Binder at Red Bull KTM Ajo in Germany after he fractured his collarbone. Fernández took three top 10 finishes during his short but mighty impressive campaign, even managing to make up nine places his qualifying position in 17th to ninth.

Fernández will join the Angel Nieto Team alongside two time race winner Albert Arenas for 2019 and it won’t be long before we see if the pair can bring in some more podiums.
