Pedro Acosta, Moto3 World Champion3

At 17, Pedro Acosta is the new world champion of Moto3. He perhaps it perhaps ahead of time, because he needed a carambola at the Algarve Grand Prix, the penultimate of the season. The Murcian took the victory in an accidental and climbing career in which the rival for the title of him, Dennis Foggia, suffered a fall.

The debutant took advantage of the first mathematical choice of being champion even though he was fourteen: he had to win or draw more than five points to Italian. KTM traced little by little until reaching Foggia in the group. Then, already on the last lap, the South African Darryn Binder threw the Italian floor. Subsequently he was disqualified by irresponsible driving.

The Italians Andrea Migno (Honda) and Niccolo Antonelli (KTM) completed the podium in Portimao.

Acosta is the first Rookie to take the World Cup from Loris Capirossi in 1990. It is also the Spanish world champion number 22 of the total of 55 national titles. He has gone from anonymity to the top of the world in an anthological season, holding the pressure of the last races of a foggia that came with six podiums followed and three victories in four appointments.

The Spanish was later excited with his title. "I've spent the last round crying, we've finished what one day we started, today many things gathered. Less than a year ago I was out of equipment, I started here the tests. Red Bull and KTM trusted on that child who seemed never He was going to arrive, "he said in Dazn statements.

Acosta added his sixth victory of the season in a final dramatic. The one of Mazarrón explained an incredible year: "I went to the races and always learned. He has deserved Foggia also but has fallen on our side. Ends a hard year, it cost me a lot and the last turns, with the weight, the stature. , in two weeks we started another year. "

"It is not normal to get to the World Cup and do this, it has been hard, the second part of the season, when I hit the stretch in summer, the races ended badly, we were there, the people from outside do not see it. I have not become nervous. Never, if I did not win I always learned, if someone had to believe in me it was me. Although I have broken a lot of bikes this year the team has continued working, "he concluded.
