MotoGP™ rookies aged 26 are rare, but the Spaniard showed enough in his premier-class freshman season to suggest he’ll be hanging around for a while, and won’t be an afterthought.

The only rider to so far deny Pedro Acosta a title – an admittedly-small sample size of three years, but still – Fernandez made a good fist of a tricky first year with Herve Poncharal’s GasGas team, where teammate Pol Espargaro was injured and absent from race one, leaving a class newcomer flying blind and with little to compare himself to.

An outstanding fourth on merit in just his fifth race at Le Mans maybe set unrealistic goals for what was to come, but a handful of Q2 visits showed the 2022 Moto2™ champion’s worth.
