Reading the title for a moment I thought he was going to be sacked like Loi....He's been an impressive rookie and is taking shape as the season goes on.

As for getting rid of Brno...I hope not. It's a superb circuit.

Karel has shown flashes of the speed that he undoubtedly has, while crashing a bit more than i thought he would. What has surprised me the most however is that Bastianini has been the better rookie of the two by quite a margin so far, eventhough last year Karel dominated him and everybody else in the Red Bull rookies cup. Different riders develop at different rates i guess. Karel and Enea will surely be strong contenders next year when they have a bit more experience, but everyone in Moto3 will need to up their game when Fabio Quartararo arrives, cause he is going to arrive and explode like a bomb.

"Fabio Quartararo arrives, cause he is going to arrive and explode like a bomb"

I keel hearing about this kid all I know is if he joins the championship next season he will be to young for a handful of the early season races.

I guess I'm going to have to keep waiting before I get to see this kid in action he's got alot of hype to live up to from what I've been hearing.

I do know that he holds the lap record around a motogl circuit for a moto3 bike while competing in a notional championship so the sooner ye arrives the better.

Bastianini is learning really fast karel is taking a bit more time but will surely fight for wins n future...these guys are nxt big rivals in moto3.....waiting to see what fabio can do .kid seems really really fast

@ V4Poweeeer:

Last year Fabio became the youngest ever spanish national champion at 14 taking away Aleix Esparagos' record, but it's his lap times that are the real eye opener. At the season final in Jerez last year his pole lap of 1.47.100 would have put him second on last years the world championship grid behind only Alex Rins.

During the first private pre-season test this year when Rins and Marquez tried out the new Honda for the first time, Fabio lapped faster than both of them on the same bike, despite the fact that both are 3 years older than him.......

......His pole lap of 1.58.551 at Aragon this year was faster than Alex Rins' pole at Aragon last year, and his pole time of 1.50.135 at Catalunya this year was 0.1 faster than Marquez's pole time for this years Catalunya GP. In others words the currently existing Moto3 world chamionship pole records at both Aragon and Catalunya are slower than the spanish national championship pole records. It is unheard of that anybody from the national championship can do lap times that are faster than the top moto3 world championship riders. Usually the top riders form the national championship are 1-2 seconds slower than the top world championship riders. So yes, at only 15 Quartararo is insanely fast....

Quartararo is the next big thing...Scary fast for a Moto3 rider let alone a 15 year old kid.
Marquez best hammer on with his record breaking because it won't be long before Fabio crashes the party.
