Quartararo: "I need a bike that wins, not one that is fast in practice"

Phillip Island.- The bleeding of points lost by the Yamaha rider since the Dutch Grand Prix is spectacular, exacerbated by the crash in Aragón, 17th place in Thailand and a new crash this Sunday in Australia, where he lost the leadership that he took in Portimao, in the fifth race of the course.

“I made a mistake, I went wide at turn 4, and I wanted to recover positions. Then, when I crashed, I went in too fast. We need more grip behind,” Fabio Quartararo summed up a new disaster.

“It’s not the result I expected,” lamented the Frenchman, who, however, denied having lowered his arms: “I’m not throwing in the towel.”

“The options are still there. I don’t want to talk about miracles, I want to finish in the best possible way. In the last two races I will go fast,” he advanced. 

“I haven’t thrown in the towel at all, there are two races left, I think we can do it, we have to do two perfect races, the one in Malaysia will be crucial.”

“I only have one thing left: try to win. It will be the toughest challenge of my career,” he admitted.

Quartararo not only has to fight against the good form of Pecco Bagnaia, but above all he has to do so at a technical and mechanical disadvantage. 

“The problem is not that I have to ride over the limit, but that we ride differently. We go fast, but we don’t have a bike that wins races. We have to find a way to turn with less speed through corners,” he said. 

“I need a bike that wins races, not one that goes fast in practice,” was his diagnosis.

“The problem of 2020 was mental and technical, now, the mental part is resolved, but the other thing persists,” settled the one from the Côte d’Azur.
