Who in the small classes of the motorcycle world championship has a big goal: the promotion to MotoGP. The last German-speaking pilot to do this was the Swiss Tom Lüthi. As Moto2 Vice World Champion, he made the leap into the premier class in 2018. In the Marc VDS team, he piloted a Honda RC213V.

"But in the end you have to do your job and try to be as quick as possible," says Lüthi and admits: "Unfortunately, this was simply not possible for me this season. " The Swiss did not even make it into the points while his team-mate Franco Morbidelli scored 50 points.

"You learn so much more in times when things are not going so well. It opens you up Eyes. And 2018 did just that. After this season, I knew that I had to change things, that I had to change my preparation, including my attitude. Rethink, think differently. So I don't regret it, "he says.

Moto 2 ™: Rewriting the script. The first two races of the year suggested there was a new man to beat. Every Grand Prix since has flipped the form book. After a Moto 2 ™ race at Mugello that no one predicted – a phrase becoming ever more familiar in the intermediate class – there’s a lot to digest from the first third of the 2019 season. First it was Lorenzo Baldassarri (Flexbox HP 40) who looked unbeatable, then it looked like veteran campaigner Tom Lüthi (Dynavolt Intact GP ) had hit another gear.

SKY Racing Team VR46’s Luca Marini clinched back -to- back wins for the first time in his career after fighting off Dynavolt Intact GP ’s Tom Lüthi in the closing stages at the Motul Grand Prix of Japan. In a fiercely competitive Moto 2 ™ race, Marini and Lüthi were joined on the podium by 2018 Moto 3™ World Champion Jorge Martin (Red Bull KTM Ajo), who earned a debut top-three finish in the intermediate class after starting from 14th on the grid.

Successful Moto2 Comeback 2019

"That was absolutely the goal. And it was hard work to get there. A year ago, before the first race in Qatar back in Moto2, I was really nervous. I didn't know what I had to expect where I was standing. There were so many questions in my head: Am I still good enough, can I still keep up? "

After the race, in which Lüthi missed victory by only 0.026 seconds, a huge stone fell from his heart. "I knew then that I was still doing well." The fact that Moto2 itself experienced a renaissance helped him.

Because the middle WM class drove with more powerful Triumph engines and new electronics, which should bring them closer to MotoGP. Lüthi says: "The Moto2 is still far from the level of MotoGP, it makes a big difference. But with the triumph era you have come a little closer."

"We also have a little more electronics to tune the bike, though not nearly as much as in MotoGP. The change was still positive for me, also mentally. I went back to Moto2, but it wasn't the old one Moto2, but something new. It was important to keep the motivation. "
