Alberto Moncayo is replaced by Jonas Folger in the Moto3 Mapfre Aspar Team

Oh my God how is Jorgito! He is climbing the walls and cannot stand the bad results he is obtaining in the minor categories of the Motorcycle World Championship. If already after Mugello we found out about the replacement of Toni Elias by Jordi Torres in Moto2, now Jorge Martínez Aspar has done the same in Moto3, and it has already been confirmed that Alberto moncayo to have the services of German Jonas Folger. And the truth, taking into account that Moncayo is one of my favorites in the World Cup, because I like the kid, it is still bad news.

The replacement is also imminent, and already in the next appointment of Indianapolis we will see Folger on the Kalex-KTM of the Aspar team. Remember that the German had a tough season in the IodaRacing Project, while the only podium achieved in the smallest category by the Mapfre Aspar Team, has been precisely Moncayo in the French circuit of Le Mans. The reasons that have led to this decision is due to the poor results of the team and because Alberto was expected to be fighting for the top positions in every race.

Obviously nothing to object to the decision, but … why Toni Elías and not Nico Terol? Why Moncayo and not Hector Faubel? Because if it is simply bad results, none of the four have reaped very good results. So I suppose it will have a lot to do with the fact that the team is Valencian, and wants to have a pilot from the Valencian Community in their ranks, who I still remember how Jorge defended Héctor when he was playing the 125cc title with Gabor Talmacsi, he he.

In any case, the one who is obviously happy is Folger, as he clearly shows in his statements:

So nothing, as I was telling you, this news bothers me because of Alberto, that he will have to look for a team now to see if he can finish this championship, but we must admit that We all expected more from Cádiz this season, him included. We all know that Jorge Martínez Aspar's team in the small category has been a benchmark for years, and in this we have hardly seen them from the front area. I just hope that the decision turns out to be the best for all parties involved. Time will tell…
