Fabio Quartararo (6th) also demands penalties in MotoGP / MotoGP

Fabio Quartararo was unable to improve at the end of FP2 at Le Mans because he hit the traffic. The Yamaha star and world championship leader has no understanding that his MotoGP colleagues are strolling around.

“It was a good day because the pace was really good. In the morning I was very well, in the afternoon again, “Fabio Quartararo reported after day 1 with his GP. In the timesheets, he is sixth after FP2, 0.492 seconds behind Enea Bastianini. But that does not let the World Cup leader bother him.

“We tried something in the second round in FP2, and then there was quite a lot of traffic on the track, also hunting times. I could not improve any more. However, it was good to collect some data for tomorrow. I think it was quite important and interesting. All in all, it was a good day, “confirmed” El Diablo “.

When asked, the Yamaha star revealed: “I tested the new swing arm in FP2. The comments were similar to Jerez – it’s okay, but you do not know in the end if it is actually better or not. There are no clear differences, but the feeling is not it’s better.It’s better during braking, but more aggressive and so harder when submitting … We have to analyze the data now, but my first impression is that tomorrow we will stick to the standard swing arm. I prefer to stick to something I is 100 percent sure. “

Back to the traffic: More and more often you see scenes like in the Moto3 class in MotoGP, when people stroll and wait on the track before chasing times. Could this be a problem? “Yes, that’s already a problem,” Quartararo replied. “When motorists look at you and stay on the line … If someone makes a mistake, there’s no reason to stay in the middle of the track. And when I was in Moto3, the MotoGP riders were my role model. If we start “With that, the same thing will happen in Moto3. There are many penalties in the Moto3 class, but in MotoGP there has never been a penalty. I think they should be much tougher in MotoGP with the penalties,” demanded the 23-year-old Frenchman.
