Marc Marquez and Rossi heap praise on rookie wonder Acosta

Pedro Acosta (Red Bull KTM Ajo): only the fifth rider in 73 years of history to stand on the podium in his opening three Grands Prix, and the Spaniard is the youngest of all to do so. Acosta’s “the plan was to have fun for 25 minutes, then take the trophy” line in parc ferme on Sunday was brilliant. Compatriot Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) is well aware of what it takes to win World Championships, and the famous number 93 is seriously impressed with Acosta’s performances. After Acosta’s incredible Doha GP win, nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi (Petronas Yamaha SRT) jokes that he’d “wait for him” to get to MotoGP™.
