moto2 fernandezAn early crash ends Augusto Fernandez’s hopes of a good start to the 2020 season in Qatar but there are many positives to take away from the weekend.

After Sam Lowes’ withdrawal from the Grand Prix of Qatar on Saturday due to an injured right shoulder, Augusto Fernandez was the lone Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS representative on the grid for the opening Moto2 race of 2020.

The 22-year old Majorcan was one of only five riders to choose the harder Dunlop front tyre compound for the 20-lap race in the hope it would benefit him in the later laps.

However Fernandez had a difficult start to the race from 12th on the grid. The three-time Moto2 race winner ended the first lap in 16th position.

Entering turn six on lap three, Fernandez then made contact with Stefano Manzi ahead, causing him to crash out of the race. A disappointing end, but the potential is there for a strong result at the next race.
