MotoGp, Fabio Quartararo blunt: “We are still far from what the bike needs”

During the press conference to present the Portimao GP, Fabio Quartararo spoke about his feelings ahead of the opener and about the competitiveness of the Yamaha compared to the defending champion Ducati.

“During the tests we tried different things, but in the end we went back to the basics of last year. At the moment we don’t have the same top speed and that’s why we have to work to improve,” the French rider began.

“We have made progress, but it is still not enough. We are still quite far from both Ducati and what our bike needs. We have to keep developing until the end of the season if we want to stay on top,” said the 2021 world champion.

“This season is going to be very tough, but on a physical level I think I have grown compared to 2022. With the introduction of the Sprint Race I expect a higher intensity than usual,” concluded Quartararo.
