Quartararo: "It's difficult to overtake here, you have to have a good strategy"

Portimao.- In conditions in which he does not normally feel comfortable, Fabio Quartararo managed to reach Q2 and fight for pole position, although at the last minute he lacked one more lap to finish exploiting his possibilities.

“It was a very good day, but in qualifying it was a bit unfortunate because I caught the checkered flag for one or two seconds, and one more lap in these conditions allows you to improve a lot and that is what I have lacked in comparison. with the others”, he lamented at the end of the day.

“But it’s my fault, I always like to get out last (from the pits) and this will teach me to get out a little earlier in these conditions,” he added.

“I’m very happy, especially how things turned out in the rainy conditions in the morning, we finished less than a tenth off the lead when it was really wet, so honestly I’m satisfied.”

“We lack a lot of consistency in the rain in terms of set-up. I have been saying this for a long time. The bike works well when everything is going well, but yesterday we had temperature problems and today we have managed to find a solution that has worked. performance of our bike is very small compared to the others and that’s what has given us a bit of trouble”.

Yamaha ‘s solution always needs some rear grip.

“We tried to put more weight in the rear to increase the temperature of the tires and it worked, so it was good.

Despite the fact that the Frenchman was one of the fastest of the weekend and he looks consistent, he does not want to make predictions.

“We’ll see, I’m not anticipating. I don’t know how to see it, but the important thing is to be calm. Last year I was behind the two Pramacs and I had a lot of difficulties, but I have to be focused and try to have a good first lap,” he said as one of the keys in a circuit where it is not easy to overtake, and even less with lower top speed on the straights

“In the first race last year I was fourth or fifth, and in the other eighth or ninth, and with the Ducati it was really like a yo-yo, I couldn’t pass. We will have to find good ‘strategic’ points to advance, because here it is a little difficult to find solutions to make good overtaking”, settled.
