MotoGp, Fabio Quartararo falls but does not give up the World Championship
The Frenchman crashed during the 10th lap
Fabio Quartararo is no longer the leader of the World Championship. Complicated by his crash (on lap 10) in the Australian GP, the reigning World Champion is now -14 from the new leader of the standings, namely Italy’s Pecco Bagnaia (third at the finish).
“In Malaysia we will try to stay there in front and, above all, to finish in the race. I struggled a lot to warm up the rear tire. In Malaysia it will be difficult, but we will try. It will serve me as experience for the future. The crash? I lost the front and fell,” his post-race words.
After six titles won by Valentino Rossi in eight years it was the Spanish riders who took the lion’s share of the MotoGp world championship. From 2012 to 2020 only they have won, with Jorge Lorenzo a two-time world champion, Marc Marquez (6) and Joan Mir, triumphant in 2020 with his Suzuki.
