Indianapolis kicks off second part of Moto3™ season
Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Sandro Cortese holds a narrow nine-point lead over Blusens Avintia’s championship favourite Maverick Viñales, as the pair continue their tussle up-front. Last year the Spaniard got the better of the German as they both occupied second and third spot on the rostrum, and no doubt Viñales will be looking to do the same this time round to claw back some points. RW Racing GP’s Luis Salom will aim to overcome his disappointment of not finishing the last race in Mugello with a solid performance, while Team Italia FMI’s Romano Fenati will be buoyed by his spectacular second place last time out.
Caretta Technology’s Alexis Masbou, who only recently took his first Grand Prix podium, will hope to rekindle some of that form after a disappointing race in Mugello. AirAsia-SIC-Ajo’s Zulfahmi Khairuddin will be one to watch at the Brickyard, after stating during the summer break that his sights were firmly set on taking his first career rostrum in the second part of the season. Estrella Galicia 0,0’s Alex Rins will aim for further steady progression in his maiden Moto3 season, while Racing Team Germany’s Louis Rossi will look to make up for his DNFs at the last two rounds.
There have been numerous changes in the Moto3 line-up, with Alex Márquez, younger brother of Moto2™ rider Marc Márquez, replacing Simone Grotzkyj at Ambrogio Next Racing, and Armando Pontone coming in to replace Jonas Folger in the IodaRacing Project team. Folger, in turn, has moved to Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3 after it parted ways with Spaniard Alberto Moncayo. Moncayo however, will be replacing the injured Iván Moreno at the Andalucia JHK Laglisse team for the Indianapolis race.
