Jarvis pressures Quartararo and wants the agreement "at the end of June"

Fabio Quartararo has not yet committed to Yamaha beyond his current contract, which ends at the end of 2022. This situation has increased uncertainty in the fingerboard box, and there are many rumors linking the reigning world champion with a possible departure from the brand.

During the Austin weekend, the Frenchman’s manager revealed that several rival teams had taken an interest, while Quartararo himself said earlier in the year that his future “was wide open” after becoming unhappy with the lack of progress made by Yamaha. in search of speed and power.

Speaking exclusively to Motorsport.com during this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez, Lin Jarvis says the marque is in constant contact with Quartararo’s legal entourage about a new deal, and hopes to have everything in place by end of June.

“Yes, we have been in contact, of course,” Jarvis said when asked what the current status of the Quartararo negotiations is.

“We are always in contact with his manager, and we are, can I say, in close contact with each other at the moment, putting together what we think will be an attractive package and proposition for him going forward.”

“Without a doubt, he is our number one priority. There is no doubt about that, I think it is obvious to everyone.”

“I would like to believe that Yamaha is also his best option for him.”

“So the important thing for us in this process is that you feel confident and comfortable with the program that we are going to develop for 2023 and 2024.”

“Since he achieved a good result [in Portugal], many people have said that ‘that will influence the negotiations.’

“Not really, because the whole thing is not about this season, it’s not about today and tomorrow. It’s about whether he has confidence in our program for the next two years.”

“Of course it is,” he said of when the deal is due to be signed, “but I’ll give you the political answer.”

“So I would say before the summer break, at the end of June, in my opinion, we should have it agreed. And it would be nice if we could do it before then.”

Yamaha is also in the process of negotiating a new contract with satellite team RNF for the 2023 season , having only signed a one-year deal when they changed names following the unexpected departure of oil company Petronas last season.

While it is true that he is not happy with the RNF team’s results so far in 2020 – with only a top 10 finish in the first five races – Jarvis says Yamaha is pleased with the structure and is “optimistic”.

“A lot of things have changed since last season, unexpected changes like the cancellation of the Moto3 and Moto2 programme, the change of main sponsor, etc. There were many reasons why we felt it would be prudent to continue with them,” said Jarvis.

“I think the team is finding some stability.”

“It’s been a very difficult situation for that team, I think the whole transition over the winter was hard work for them to grow and find an organization before the current one.

“But now they seem stable. Are we happy with the performance results so far? No, I don’t think we are.”

“But I would say that from a team perspective they are doing well. We have until the end of June to make our decision, but I am optimistic that we will also renew with RNF.”
