Jaume Masia is considered to be one of the most promising motorcyclists on the planet. In 2015, at only 14 years old, he made his debut in the FIM CEV Moto3 Junior World Championship and finished 5th in the championship, achieving a podium in Aragón. Two years later, he took second place in the Moto3 Junior World Championship after wins at Aragón and Valencia, as well as a total of six podiums.
At the age of 18 he made his debut in the 2018 Moto3 World Championship, and in the current 2019 season he already knows what it is like to win a Grand Prix and lead the world championship.
His beginnings in motorcycling date back to a very early age, when his father introduced him to the world of motorcycling. From that moment on, Jaume has not stopped fighting and evolving to get where he is now. Closer to being world champion!
Despite arriving so young at the World Cup, Jaume Masià has always had his feet on the ground: “when you were a child you had a dream, but as you mature you see how difficult it will be to reach that goal, it was something unthinkable. No one knows more than my family what it has cost me to get here, there are moments when you have to remember where you come from, I am lucky to be surrounded by very good people who remind me day by day and make me enjoy a little more of what I do”.
In 2018 he made his first full season in the Moto3 world championship and in several races he came very close to achieving the podium. In 2019, after a complicated start in Qatar, dragged down by the injury he had in pre-season, World Championship glory arrives: victory in Argentina, second position in the USA and third in Italy. A season of highs and lows: “it has not been easy to manage this season with the team I’m in since it disappears next year, it has been a little difficult to manage the departure of the team for next season because I wanted a little more, to make a leap to a new goal and in the end internally has been quite complicated, also at the emotional level since I have become very fond of the team and they with me. From the outside it seems very easy, but if you’re not in the henhouse you don’t know what’s going on either; we’ve had a lot of bad luck with touches with other drivers, mechanical problems… in the end I think we’re not having a bad year, fighting in all the races to be ahead, with more or less luck but whoever works it all out comes and sooner or later we’ll be back on the podium.
Jaume Masià says goodbye to us, saying that: “in the end, we live at this age things that normal people don’t live. Having the pressure to do well in every race to carve out my future or at the level of contracts that is quite complicated, as well as the experiences of traveling around the world … a normal 17 or 18 year old boy does not live it and that is also a little more maturity that I have had”.
Good luck Jaume!
