A 2021 MotoGP World Championship ended in Valencia, full of emotions, surprises and satisfactions. Even if not everything has always gone in the best of ways for our guys, our guys have always fought to give their best.
Many crashes for Alex Rins, however always very fast, and many placings and podiums for Aron Canet in Moto2, with the Spaniard always the protagonist.
However, it is very difficult for us to say goodbye to Danilo Petrucci who greets the top for an adventure in the Dakar. Danilo did not find the right feeling on his KTM, but he maintains the respect of the Austrian manufacturer and his managers, who still see him as an investment for the future.
Danilo Petrucci teaches us one thing: never give up. We will continue to stay by his side by providing him with maximum technical support and our attention. This is what we do with you, that you will always be our everyday riders!
DANILO PETRUCCI: 18th
"A huge thank you to everybody, everybody in KTM, everybody in Tech3 and generally everyone, who has been working with me. We tried our best. In this race, I just tried to enjoy until the last moment. I’m really thankful for everything. I just want to thank everybody! Now it’s time to rest a bit."
ALEX RINS: DNF
"It has been an unlucky race for us here in Valencia, for sure it’s a big shame to end the season like this. Because I had the pace and I was running well, but I made a mistake. I was very slightly off-line and that’s what caused the crash, when that moment happened I knew I might crash - in the end it can be like that, but I’m disappointed. We’ll look at the data and then I’ll start to focus on the test, we’ll go to Jerez next week to try next year’s bike and our goal is to fight again in 2022."
ARON CANET: 5th
"It was a very emotional race. I'm very happy to have met the goal of being a regular, especially in the second half of the season. My path and that of the Inde Aspar Team part ways. I will always carry this team in my heart; They have made me improve a lot as a pilot and they are like a family. Thanks to them I have taken a great step forward in professionalism and on the track. I wish them a great future and next year I will continue to fight for the title, albeit separately."
