Quartararo’s best result in Aragon, a fifth place

A Fabio Quartararo has a difficult weekend ahead of him in Aragón. The Frenchman’s best result in the premier class to date is a P5 in 2019.

For its part, Franco Morbidelli does have good memories of the Spanish track. With Petronas Yamaha, the Italian managed to claim victory in 2020. His year is not being as expected, so he hopes to have a positive end to the season: “We have made good steps before the Misano race. We have been on this positive trajectory, but we were unlucky during the race. This weekend we will try again. I have very good memories in Aragón in 2020 when I won the Teruel GP. We know that the competition is tough, but we have already shown that we can also get good results on this circuit«.
