Beirer: Fernandez informed us he’ll leave KTM in Jerez

Speaking to Pitlane Reporter Simon Crafar at the end of MotoGP™ FP3 at the CryptoDATA Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich, KTM Motorsport Director Pit Beirer confirmed Raul Fernandez (Tech3 KTM Factory Racing) is not an option for the remaining GASGAS Factory Racing Team seat in 2023. GASGAS announced on Friday at the Red Bull Ring that they will be joining the premier class next season, teaming up with Tech3 and bringing in former KTM and Tech3 rider Pol Espargaro as one of their stars. The second rider in the new-look team is yet to be confirmed, but Red Bull KTM’s 2021 Moto2™ runner-up and star rookie Fernandez won’t be one of them. But no decision as to who will be the Spaniard’s teammate in the GASGAS MotoGP™ team has been made yet.
