“I am very excited to be joining this Championship and I’m very grateful for all the help and encouragement I have received over the years from Uncle Khaled. I am also thankful for all the support I have from sponsors, friends and family who have helped me get onto the grid,” stated Haytham.

“I’m under no illusions as to how challenging this season will be as a newcomer to the sport. I will start off in the rookie class, and I want to spend the first season getting to grips with the car and to learn as much as I can,” he continued.

Very cool video MotoGP. More like this one please!!!

now whrs redding? gone?

I was there.....Brilliant racing!!

Very drunk day but remember the race. Loved watching Scott race. All packed and ready for Silverstone Thursday morning.

Fantastic battle 👍

I was there, great finish. Home crowd went wild when Redding got back in front, then deadly silent when Marquez had a look up inside on last bend, then wild again when Redding cut back across. Amazing stuff!

Great performance by Pol & Scott at the end💪🏼..that was a cracker💥..

Awesome pictures!

Amazing

however Mac Marquez with his current performance does not have to be Marquez's best

Very nice

Very nice

All these guys are big talents. Many riders like Pol Espargaro, Alvaro Bautista, Bradley Smith, Antony West & many more are great riders and capable of winning championships ( capable ). People underestimate these guys by their bad results, but really..top material is key in these classes, especially in the MotoGp class. Give them a solid ride and they'll blow your mind

Redding never got the ride he deserved.

2019, #93 is the winner..😋🏁

special suter chassis for marc and mysterious team 😉 after marc step up to motogp, this team directly disappear, nobody know where are they now.

Just shows how good Redding was but never really got the bike to really take it to them in Motogp.

Man, I miss Scott Redding in the padock "let's get it babi"

Muy buena carrera no apta para cardíacos 🤭🤭🤭

Forget just how good Redding could have been with a decent bike

The world champion's misfortune opened the door for Andrea Dovizioso to snatch the win! 💨
