Low mood at Yamaha
Fabio Quartararo approaches Sunday’s race in Austin with a low mood to say the least: ‘El Diablo’, due to a crash, finished the Sprint Race in the rear and continues to be anything but satisfied with the grip of his Yamaha.
“I feel frustrated, of course, because the speed was there – the Frenchman told his team’s official channels -. But when we race on the track against the others, I can’t do much. We have to stay calm but we also have to find improvements as much as possible. soon as possible. I didn’t crash because I took a risk in the Sprint, maybe I risked something in terms of braking but that’s where I can make up some ground. We hope to be able to take a step forward in the next few weeks and in the next races. as far as the race is concerned, we’ll need to get off to a good start otherwise there won’t be much to do”.
Maio Meregalli also intervened on the Yamaha situation, again on the team’s official channels: “The Sprint Race didn’t give us the result we expected – said the Yamaha MotoGp technical director -. It’s a pity, especially for Fabio “He got off to a good start and was racing alongside the best. He did everything he could to stay in the top positions, but when you’re riding at 110%, a mistake can happen.”
