The official Australian Grand Prix podcast In the Fast Lane has released its latest episode, featuring Moto2™ rider Sam Lowes.
The 31-year-old joined In the Fast Lane co-hosts Matt Clayton and Chris Vermeulen to analyse the Moto2™ season, including his take on the high-stakes battle for this year’s World Championship between Remy Gardner and Raul Fernandez.
While discussing the season so far, Lowes says despite Gardner’s crash in Austin he has what it takes to dust himself off and win the championship.
“I really really hope honestly, even though I should be unbiased, that Remy can get the title this year, I think he deserves it. Let’s just see how he reacts from that incident. I think the team are very good, very relaxed and they will keep him calm,” said Lowes.
“He’s got them results and he’s built the results up, and now when you’re riding that way, it’s the best place in the world to be when you’re racing … when you go out at pit lane you’ve got the confidence of the races before.”
Gardner currently has a nine-point lead, but there are still three races to go, and Raul Fernandez is snapping at the Aussie’s heels. Lowes has watched Fernandez’s rapid rise in Moto2™ and says he’s become a real threat on the grid.
“The way he (Fernandez) was riding there (Aragon) and also the confidence he has taken into this year - the stuff he can do on the bike is impressive,” said Lowes.
