dur­ing our in­ter­ac­tion with na­gashima, he men­tioned that the en­tire rac­ing cul­ture in Moto2 is quite dif­fer­ent from what he grew up with; how­ever, he said he had no prob­lems adapt­ing to the fast­paced world of Moto2.

We also had a word with honda Team asia Moto3 rid­ers, Kaito Toba and nakarin ati­rat­phu­va­pat. Both the rid­ers were very calm and ex­plained that Moto3 is a to­tally dif­fer­ent ball game for them.
