The MotoGP leader will continue at Yamaha for the next two seasons and it is something that Fabio Quartararo is grateful for, because he feels that he wins in peace. He looked exultant at the start of the Catalonia GP.

“The truth is that it has not been an easy decision and we took a little more time to make it and analyze the whole project. In the end, the reality is that Yamaha has made a great effort, they have incorporated many people and they know where they have to improve. In the last two or three years they have worked in some areas and others, but now they know where they have to improve, which is in power. They know what they have to do to improve the project. It’s a decision we made a few days ago”, began the champion, who added: “My first objective is to have the best bike and the best project, and They have convinced me because they have incorporated new staff and they know where they have to improve. In the past they have worked in several areas to improve, but they already know that the weak point is power. And that’s what made me decide.”

The Frenchman was asked to be more specific about the arrival of the new people in his box, saying: “It’s already in Yamaha, and of course they are motor. To be fair, I feel very weak with that part of the Obviously, all the riders want more grip, more speed, but if I have to be realistic what we lack compared to the others is speed. It is what has made me make the decision, knowing that many engineers are going to work on the engine part. It will be that part of the bike where you work the most.”

Fabio acknowledged that he spoke with other factories: “As you can imagine, we have not only talked with Yamaha, and it has taken more time, because at a certain point my head was going from one place to another, I wanted to be in one place and the following week in another. It has been difficult. Of course, this decision to move engineers to the engine area and to see myself achieving great results has helped me to decide, although I know that now I cannot do more. But I feel good on the bike and I know that they are just going to push in that area. That’s what made me make the decision.”
