MotoGP, Quartararo: "Qualifying as a breath of fresh air."

"Now, however, the priority is to understand why our bike doesn't respond well when track conditions change. In the Sprint Race I struggled a lot. What will I try in the Mugello test? I don't know yet."

MotoGP: Quartararo:

Eighth on the grid and tenth at the finish line of his home Sprint Race, Fabio Quartararo can archive Saturday's action at Le Mans with a half smile.

"When the grip level decreases we suffer and although this morning everything went well and I was happy, in the afternoon the others went well and we didn't. We have to understand why when conditions change, even slightly, we suffer in this way," was his analysis.

Returning to the qualifying session that saw him in pretty good shape, the Yamaha rider said, "I was pretty much on the limit, as was clear from the mistakes I made in the first two laps. At that point I decided to do a third one to see if we had anything in the pocket and it turned out to be a good time. I think it was the maximum we could obtain. Definitely the best time of the weekend."

Moving on to tomorrow and feasible goals, the 2021 MotoGP champion preferred to take a low-key approach. "Even if it rains, it won't help us, but now what matters is to understand the reasons for the over-sensitivity of the M1 to the state of the track."

Giving him support and warmth is the public: "The fans are crazy, already since Wednesday the campsites are full. I'm not saying this because we are in France, but they are the best."

Finally, a brief word about what he will be testing in the Mugello tests, "I don't know yet."
