Good ride to third with a broken hand
Had a good season and hopefully he can continue on next year

I hope the 3 going into MotoGP have a good season and all have competitive bikes

I agree and have to say he made me eat words that I uttered when I heard Marc VDS were taking him on. Initially I thought I was right after he missed Qatar because of injury, then his woopsie in Austria but he had a tremendous end to the season. Fast, smooth and Valencia aside very safe. To cap it all of he was his typically gentlemanly self in the post race interview at Portman, hats off and good luck next year Sam

I agree. At one point he looked as if he was fading, and then he came back with a FL.

He should be a contender next year as well.

Sam looking very strong in testing and fronting the timesheets in the final Qatar test, despite reputedly not going for a time attack lap.

If he can keep the standard going this year I struggle to see who will be able to beat him, other than himself!

Sam Lowes will miss the Austrian and San Marino GP’s after being declared unfit.

With Lowes out of action, Australian Senna Agius will join the Marc VDS squad alongside Tony Arbolino for the Austrian and San Marino rounds of the 2022 Moto2 World Championship.

Great opportunity for Senna's development

Wishing Sam a speedy recovery

Speed without doubt, ability not to crash regularly doubtful.

Pleased to see that Jake Dixon is doing really well now. Weird how all of a sudden last year he showed ability to appear at the front occasionally and this year he's consistently strong.
I wonder if that shows both how strong BSB is and that just because a young rider has taken that route ( whether British or not) shouldn't prevent GP team bosses looking to employ them. Dixon, Lowes, Crutchlow are the most recent examples who have shown that despite their production based background they are quick enough to battle at the front of prototype championships
