"My folks have always loved Moto GP. They encouraged me to start learning how to ride a motorbike. I think I was 4 years old."

He has already tasted plenty of success and picks out a favourite race. "That would be two years ago in Motorland, in Zaragoza. Out of twelve riders I was the lucky one to win the race."

"My best race of 2018 was that of ETC in the Motorland circuit. It was my first victory in the championship, and I arrive after a lot of work."

"I learnt a lot in 2019, now I´m more aware of the things I can do with the bike and how to convert my thoughts into action."

"In 2020 I want to continue gradually with improving my skills and gaining more experience. My favourite sections are blind corners and the braking zone. I love racing and working with the team to get the best out of the bike and myself."

"My best race of 2020 was undoubtedly the second round in Valencia where I took the two victories. I enjoyed that weekend a lot, because in free time it was hard for us to go fast since the bike was not to my liking, in timed training I classified as far forward as possible where I had to get used to the bike, I started in P10."

"That weekend I made some incredible starts and in the first corner he is in P3. I fought during the two races to be as far ahead as possible and some incredible last laps!!"

"In 2020 I learned to focus more on my work and manage the races in a better way, and above all to enjoy riding the bike, which is the most important thing."

"In 2021 I hope to enjoy and try to win the championship, which is what we are going for, but above all to go race by race and enjoy each one of them!"
