Fabio Quartararo will set a new stamp as the best MotoGP rookie of the 2019 season at Motegi. The debutant racer in the first class is 85 points ahead of Joan Mir.
Quartararo does not want to be rushed even though the Japanese GP is the first opportunity to secure the award. “Of course, we also have the title ‘Rookie of the Year’ in mind, Motegi is the first opportunity to secure it, but there is no hurry,” Quartararo was quoted as saying from Speedweek, Wednesday (10/16/2019).
Since arriving in the MotoGP class this season, Quartararo has successfully hypnotized millions of pairs of eyes of the most prestigious motor racing connoisseurs in the world. Of the 15 races he has traveled, he managed to stand on the podium five times.
One of the topics of discussion is Quartararo has managed to trouble the MotoGP 2019 world champion, Marc Marquez, several times. Finally, it happened at the Thailand Grand Prix, two weeks ago.
In Buriram, the 20-year-old Frenchman missed his first MotoGP victory after Marc Marquez was able to defeat the fierce battle at the last corner. This is the same as what happened in Misano.
At that time, the young French racer was forced to bury his dream after being defeated eight-time world champion Repsol Honda team rider. Then, what about Motegi?
As a reminder. In 2018, Quartararo almost stood strong on the first podium at the Moto2 race in Japan. The 20-year-old driver does not seem to want to repeat the minor notes this weekend.
Facing the race at the Motegi Twin Ring Circuit, Quartararo claimed he would continue to work as he did in the past few weeks. He hopes to stand strong on the podium this weekend.
“We will continue to work as we did in the last few weeks, trying to fight for good results and get on the podium,” Quartararo said.
