Fabio Quartararo: “Is it just the Yamaha team? No problem» / MotoGP

Yamaha rider Fabio Quartararo is coming to his home race in Le Mans as champion leader. The Frenchman knows about the pressure and the extra stress in front of the crowd at home, but he prefers to have fun.

On Thursday morning, Fabio Quartararo was in Paris at Prinzenpark Stadium in Paris Saint Germain football club. Prior to the GP in Le Mans, the MotoGP World Champion was allowed to run the thigh around the stadium on the Yamaha M1 and also to play with the stars of the football team. The tournament leader then wrapped up a two-hour trip to Le Mans to take part in a press conference in the evening.

“It was a great experience to be on and off the field on a motorcycle. I was also allowed to play with the Paris Saint-Germain star, that was fun», Fabio said happily in front of the assembled journalists.

In the MotoGP standings he is seven points ahead of rider Aprilia Aleix Espargaró. How is a 23-year-old boy coping with the race at home? “I really look forward to my home race, I will give everything, but it can also bring you more stress and pressure,” stressed the Yamaha star. “I’m trying to approach this race as normal, I want to enjoy the race with all the fans at home.”

“It’s hard to predict who will be at the top,” Quartararo knows. “The song is completely different from Jerez’s. It will be important, as usual, to do a good job on Friday. We have to get a good beat and choose the right tires for the race. We also have to do a very good selection, that’s the most important thing for us.”

According to rumors, the RNF MotoGP team is in talks with Aprilia. So there could be only two Yamaha on the grid in 2022. Could that be a loss for the world champion? “If I go up to Yamaha next year, then it should not be a problem. At the moment we have problems exchanging data with the second team, so it will not be an issue for me,” added Quartararo.
