Coming from South America has not made his career path easy but Steward is undaunted. "My father passed on his hobby to me and it seems that I have always liked motorcycles and racing."
"I like working with the team and making the best out of the bike to try and win, I want to be a champion like my heroes Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez."
Having moved to Spain to help his career he has taken a big step forward. "2015 was a big year for me. Since starting the Spanish championship I learnt so much about riding fast and learnt to do things I would never have imagined I could manage."
"One of my best races of 2015 was at the Valencia Ricardo Tormo circuit in the Spanish Championship. The race was a group of seven riders where I fought the whole race to get leading the group."
At school he enjoys biology and geology and in his free time listening to music and concentrating.
For 2016 he is looking forward to the tracks and the camaraderie of the Rookies Cup. "I am very happy to be sharing a large family as it is in the Red Bull Rookies Cup. I like the more technical circuits and I feel much more comfortable on them, it should all be a great experience. My expectation for 2016 is to do everything possible to improve and get to the front and learn enough to win."
