From renewal to divorce
The partnership Miguel Oliveira And KTM it worked quite well in the past four years, so much so that the Portuguese with his five victories was the brand’s most victorious driver, but something went wrong and there was a separation between the two. In 2023 Oliveira will represent the private RNF team where he will ride the Aprilia RS-GP, but he said: “I would not say that KTM has behaved badly towards me. The restructuring of the “works” team went hand in hand with the intention, on their part, to have a different driver. These differences drove us apart, of course”.

Here’s what happened behind the scenes
However, the upper floors of the house did not want to let him escape, and they had made him a good proposal anyway: “They really wanted me to stay but to run for GASGAS. Basically, a red painted KTM”. After all, the project was clear as Oliveira explained: “The idea was to bring back GASGAS with a couple of Iberian pilots, given the origins of the brand. It was a Spaniard and a Portuguese. But I wasn’t very enthusiastic about it. There are times when a change is needed in everyone’s life. And there are trains that only pass once”. From here he took into consideration the offer that came from the RNF team, which matched some of his intentions: “I wanted to experience new opportunities and really become world champion, which I believe will happen soon.” Now the next pre-season tests are awaited, scheduled from 10 to 12 February at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia.
