Born on 4th of January 1995 in Almada, Portugal, Miguel Oliveira celebrated his first huge success in 2005 and 2006 winning the Portuguese MiniGP championship. In 2007, he moved on to win the Pre-GP 125 Mediterranean Championship. The year after, he participated in diverse championships, but only in several races. Thereby, he won two consecutive races of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.

In 2009, he was fifth in the European Championship and claimed third in the CEV. One year later, he improved to second, missing out on winner Maverick Viñales by just two points, plus was vice champion in Europe before he made his World Championship debut in 2011.

Miguel raced full time in 2012 with the Estrella Galicia 0,0 Team and was on the rostrum on two occasions, before he joined Mahindra Racing in 2013 and made headlines by grabbing the Indian manufacturer’s first ever podium in Malaysia. The talented Portuguese rider remained on the Mahindra in 2014, taking another podium at Assen, before he has been recruited by Red Bull KTM Ajo for 2015.

After a difficult start to the Moto3 season, he won in Mugello and Assen, but unfortunately broke his wrist in Germany. All hope looked lost as Danny Kent left the British GP with a 110 point lead over the KTM rider, but an incredible comeback saw Miguel take four wins and two seconds in the final six races and challenge down to the final round, finishing just six points behind Kent as runner up.

For 2016, he joined Kent in the Moto2 World Championship with Leopard Racing and after recovering from injury for the end of the year, the Portuguese rider returned to the Ajo Motorsport camp for 2017 onboard the new KTM chassis in Moto2, with Red Bull KTM Ajo. Taking their first win, challenging at the front and coming third overall, Oliveira’s 2017 season was a stunner. He kept on surprising in 2018, winning three races, plus snatched nine further podiums to eventually finish as vice champion.

Together with Tech3, Miguel started an all-new adventure in 2019, moving up to the MotoGP category together with Red Bull and KTM factory-spec RC16 machines. The Moto2 vice champion did an impressive debut, getting his best result at KTM’s home round in Austria with an eighth-place finish, until his season was unfortunately marked by injury following an unfortunate crash in Silverstone, which was not his own fault. Therefore, Miguel decided to finish his season prematurely, having surgery on the ligaments of his right shoulder with two rounds to go in order to be fully fit and attack in 2020 together with Red Bull KTM Tech3.
