'We can’t really make a step forward' admits Quartararo

Former MotoGP points leader Fabio Quartararo is reaching a level with his Petronas Yamaha early in race weekends and finding it difficult to move on.

The French youngster had two difficult weekends at Aragon and had to watch team-mate Franco Morbidelli clear off into the distance for the win Sunday.

“We have more or less the same bike, with the same tyre compounds, so for sure it’s about the riding style but FRanco did really great. We will need to see why we went that slow in the race.


“Even in the first week Franco was so consistent, and then he made an improvement. But we made no improvement from the first week to the second, and we had no consistency.

“Also Maverick, the first week he was so fast. He was the man to beat, but finally he did fourth place and now he finished just a half-a-second in front of me.

“So it’s difficult to understand because, apart from Franco that actually improved a lot, for us whenever there is a double race we didn’t.

“It looks like in the double races we struggle more because everybody makes a big step and we are just stuck. We are just not doing a step forward.

“Looks like everybody can make more changes and improve but usually when we arrive, apart from here, from FP1, FP2 the bike is already done.

“Like in Barcelona, FP1 was almost already the pace that we had for the race. So this is why we can’t really make step forward. Don’t know exactly why.

“I’m happy to leave Aragon because it was two weeks that we struggled every day.”
