Quartararo: "I have a sprained ankle, but it doesn't hurt"

Fabio Quartararo crashed at Turn 8 at Silverstone just six minutes into the second free practice session. El Diablo suffered a highside and the bike spat into the air, hitting him in the ankle of his right foot. The Frenchman stayed on the asphalt hurting and had to be helped by the marshals to leave the track.

Limping visibly, Quartararo returned to the box and a few minutes later came out again. The boy from Nice ended up going down to a 1m59.317s which gave him the fastest time on Friday.

The #20 had to go through the Mobile Clinic , where they examined him and verified that there was no scope injury.


“I have a sprained ankle, but I’m fine when I’m on the bike, it doesn’t hurt, that’s the most important thing,” Quartararo confirmed. “I think I let go of the bike at the right time, because it was a highside, it would have sent me high and it would have been more painful. It can always be worse, so we were very lucky today.”

The championship leader says he wasn’t pushing at the time of the crash and blamed the combination of the hard tire and low temperatures at Silverstone.

“The crash was because of the hard tyre, which is a total disaster here. I wasn’t really going to the limit, it was a mistake on our part to test the hard tire in those conditions. I think it was a bit of a risk, [but] it’s what I wanted. do. It was important to do some good laps after the accident. I felt pretty good,” he said.

Although in the previous race in Austria he acknowledged that he kept in the last laps of when the rain appeared thinking about the championship, Quartararo affirms that this crash does not change his mentality.

“I’m not going to be more cautious because of this accident. I came out as if nothing had happened. I could have returned a little more calmly, thinking that I’m ahead in the championship. For now, it’s something to forget,” he stressed. .
