MotoGP, Quartararo: "Thanks to the fans I pushed hard, we are close to the limit"

"I don't think there is another track where you find so many people from Friday. I'm very happy about getting into Q2, but I'm aware that Saturday will be tough. We have to get better at running the bike and in terms of grip."

MotoGP: Quartararo:

Le Mans is his home race and Fabio Quartararo has made a gift to his audience: tomorrow he will also be among the 12 riders chasing pole. At the end of Friday, the Yamaha rider in fact secured the top ten, finishing ahead of Enea Bastianini by just 10 thousandths.

A result that gives morale, coming after all the difficulties that accompanied him during the first races of this season.

"I pushed hard - he said - at the first time attack I was eighth and in the following one I did even more, finishing among the ten. I think it's a very good lap, considering I used the standard bike, but it needs a step up in terms of grip."

Also giving the Diablo a boost was his audience.
"I don't think there is another track where you can find so many people right from Friday. Obviously seeing all these people gives motivation and a lot of boost."

Fabio then returns to talk about his Yamaha.
"At the moment grip is our problem, in fact the medium tire was a nightmare. The other bikes had confidence while we did not, as we accuse a lot from a performance point of view. In addition to this aspect, we then have to work because the bike does not run well."

His gaze is now turned to Saturday.
"For the race it will be very difficult to manage the tire, considering then that my style changes and I can't be fast. However, we will see what happens. Tomorrow I will try to do a good qualifying performance even though we are close to our limit."
