Good luck to her and I hope she does well, but there are a lot more deserving riders around her age for this ride. She only finished 19th in the CEV Moto3 in 2012. But anyway it's nice to see another girl in the paddock and she does seem to have a little more speed than Elena Rosell. If she struggles we know it's not the bike because the KTM is one hell of a machine!

Congratulations to her. It's nice to see someone stepping up to the next level, especially at such a young age, and on a KTM no less. Now Red Bull KTM should give Cortese's vacant seat to Elena Myers if they want to win another championship next year. I'd say her result of 3rd over all in the AMA SSW is pretty damn impressive.

Nick636,
Am also glad for her and she seems to have more pace and natural ability than Rosell, and at only 15(16 at the season start) she will have a great learning experience on a top bike with a top class partner in Vinales.

You will be pleased to hear that all the top 4 (Alex Marquez,Amato,Bagnaia,Ottl) plus talents such as Livio Loi and Valencia wild card points scorer Juan Fransisco Guavera also scored permanent rides in Moto3, so I don't think she took a ride from someone more deserving in that respect.(maybe it's just a shame that other countries championships aren't as revered as Spains, which now has a massive international entry for a reason).

Lucky girl to be in the right team at the right time, hope she continues to flourish as a rider and make the most of a great opportunity.

nick636's probably not interested in that at all, I'd say he thinks women should just stay in the kitchen... but given that he's a jarpe and the crap rugby teams he supports who knows? he maybe right but...
