The Spanish Moto3 rider Jaume Masiá, of the team Red Bull KTM Garlic, stated, in statements provided by his team, that the main objective for the remainder of the season is “to be competitive again and try to fight to be on the podium or in the front positions.”

Masiá, now on vacation due to the summer break in the competition, took stock of the first half of the season and, although he assured that “It has not been very positive”, was eager to resume the activity: “Things have not turned out the way we expectedAlthough there is still a long season ahead and I still believe in the potential we have. That is the most important of all ”.
