Mykyta 'Nick' Kalinin Aragon

Blog | Mykyta Kalinin ends a testing season in Aragon

Hello all!

I should tell you about the final stage, where I finished 16th and 18th, but I'd rather share with you my impressions from the whole season of RedBull MotoGP RookiesCup.

Generally, our plans for this year have been quite different. After a very successful selection, we thought that from the first stage I am not just going to earn points, but also leave my adversaries behind. But the first tests conducted in Jerez, destroyed our expectations.

In Jerez I had to face the harsh reality of a Moto3 machine. Until that moment, I couldn't even imagine that the management of this machine requires so much skill. Moto3 does not forgive any mistakes and severely penalises them by hitting the gravel. But at the same time on this bike you learn to do the right thing.

With each step, I learned more and more about MotoGP world, met new people, got more and more driving skills and reduced the gap from the leader. After many hours spent with telemetry guy, I realised my weaknesses, strengths and understand what we should strive for.

As a result, after the end of the season, we saw the correct motion vector, and have already started achieving the goals.

Thanks to all Red Bull team for unforgettable experience!

Nick
