Moto3™ World Championship with Red Bull KTM Tech3 

“I’m really excited to be joining Red Bull KTM Tech3. They are a very experienced and professional team that have brought through many great riders. Stepping up from the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and FIM JuniorGP won’t be easy but with the team, the people around me as well as my own determination I believe we can have a decent rookie season. Thanks to Hervé, KTM and Red Bull for this amazing opportunity.

2nd

Career first podium in Red Bull Rookies Cup Jerez.  Jacob took his first podium with a 2nd place after a hard fought battle throughout the race, leading at times. “I am happy that all the hard work is paying off and I was very confident going into Qualifying and the race.  After 5 laps I was struggling a bit to stay with the lead group, I just decided to calm down, to hit my marks and I managed to catch back up. I miss a gear into the last corner and drifted wide but to grab my first podium feels so good”
