Is Quartararo at the same level as Rossi, Lorenzo and Marquez? Lin Jarvis responds

For many, Fabio Quartararo arrived in the championship paddock as “the next Márquez” in 2015, but he did not do well in his first years of Moto3 and Moto2. Picked to replace Rossi in the Yamaha factory team for 2021 well before the 2020 campaign began, the French rider won five races last season and gave the Japanese marque its first world title since Jorge Lorenzo in 2015.

Leading the championship ahead of their home round in France this weekend, and having won in Portugal and finished second in Indonesia and Spain, Fabio Quartararo will be looking to consolidate his lead at Le Mans at a track where Yamaha often come out strong.

Lin Jarvis , who has worked closely with Valentino Rossi and Lorenzo at Yamaha, says Quartararo can be compared to past MotoGP legends and is “a positive character” for the championship.

“Certainly he has that incredible natural talent that champions have,” said Jarvis when asked by Motorsport.com in an exclusive interview how he compared Quartararo to Lorenzo and Rossi. “A true champion always has some extra spark or skill, whether it’s Valentino, whether it’s Jorge Lorenzo, whether it’s Marc Marquez, whether it’s Casey Stoner .”

“You can name those guys and Fabio [Quartararo] is in that group.”

“He is still very young, he just turned 23. But I think he has a very good future ahead of him.”

Fabio Quartararo has yet to renew with Yamaha for 2022, and is currently in negotiations with the brand about an extension. Regarding this situation, Jarvis told Motorsport.com that he expected the talks to be concluded by the end of June, while Quartararo denied rumors that he had already signed an agreement.

“At the moment I think his driving style, fortunately for us, is perfectly suited to the characteristics of the M1.”

“So if we can give him a better and stronger package where he can fight on equal terms at least on the straights and at top speed, then I think he can do multiple championships with Yamaha.”

“I really hope he stays with us. Not only does he have amazing talent and speed, but he’s a super nice guy and a really positive character for the sport, for our team and for our brand. So, he has a complete package, 360 degree”.
