Don't remember Raul Fernandez's exploits in Australia? We'll forgive you. A DNF after 17 laps in one Moto3 outing at Phillip Island isn't much to write home about, but Fernandez's exploits since – and especially those against an Australian in Moto2 and MotoGP – make the Spaniard a man to watch.

Fernandez shot to prominence with two Moto3 wins in the final three races of 2020, and then went stratospheric once he graduated to Moto2 the following year, eight wins eclipsing any other rider, but three costly spills seeing him beaten to the title by teammate Remy Gardner. It's a potentially explosive pairing that graduated together to the premier class, and one that figures to have plenty of niggle given their contrasting styles.

When your early days are being compared to those of Marc Marquez, you're clearly doing something right; the gradient of Fernandez's climb from here will make for captivating viewing.
