Quartararo wants Razgatlioglu in MotoGP: "He has an extraordinary talent"

Earlier in the season, rumors of a Yamaha seat for Toprak Razgatlioglu were stronger than ever. The boss of the Iwata-brand team in MotoGP, Lin Jarvis , did not hesitate to confirm that if the Turk decided to make the jump to the premier class, he could have a seat in the satellite team.

However, as a consequence of Yamaha splitting from its satellite team RNF Racing, the door was closed for the Turk, at least in 2023.

Although the possibility of both champions (Quartararo and Razgatlioglu) sharing a brand in MotoGP was practically impossible, the French rider did not hesitate to praise the talent of the WSBK star, stating that he has “all the requirements” to shine in the premier class. .

“For me, he has an extraordinary talent. In his riding style you can see how much he squeezes the bike,” said Fabio Quartararo.

At the moment, Toprak Razgatlioglu is more than convinced to remain in the WSBK paddock, where he is currently trying to defend his title against the threat of Álvaro Bautista and Jonathan Rea .

“He made an incredible save at the last chicane in Estoril,” recalled the surprised Frenchman. “And the way the Yamaha pushes the limit makes me think that it has the potential to jump into MotoGP.”

However, the possibility of seeing Toprak Razgatlioglu on a prototype was no longer a dream but a reality, as the Turkish rider tested the Yamaha M1 at MotorLand Aragón on Tuesday.

Accompanied by Cal Crutchlow and as a private test, Toprak analyzed his feelings after getting on the controls of the Iwata house prototype. The reason for the test, as confirmed by the team, was nothing more than a reward for his title in 2021, praising the Turkish’s commitment to the brand.

After completing a total of 40 laps on the Yamaha YZR-M1, Toprak looked at the most significant changes from his Yamaha R1.

“You will have already seen it in the Aragón test, the MotoGP is a more rigid motorcycle that requires a different style of riding”, Fabio Quartararo advanced. “But even so, I see him with full motivation and I think he can be in MotoGP and be a very fast rider.”
