The hypothesis of one Sprint race on Saturday for the MotoGP he is sharing the two-wheel paddock. If any manager, like Francesco Guidotti, seems at least open to the news, there are those who have openly sided against the Sprint format in MotoGP: it is not just anyone, but the world champion Fabio Quartararo.
After free practice for the Austrian Grand Prix, which finished fourth in the combined standings, the Diablo he certainly did not commend Dorna on an idea that risks being a mere mimicry of Formula 1 and for which the MotoGP executives have not at all consulted the riders: “I don’t like the idea. It would be dangerous and stupid. Already 21 races are too many and if you get hurt you miss too many appointments, adding the Sprint would not make any sense, also because in Assen and Mugello you finish the race and you are dead. It’s strange that they didn’t say anything to the pilots, at least to me“, This is the harsh comment of the French a Sky Sport MotoGP.
The world champion also spoke about the purely sporting aspects. He is in fact the only non-Ducati rider in the top eight of the combined standings, but the Diablo he is not at all calm: “They will also be there on Saturday and Sunday, they certainly go fast. In one lap I made a bit of a mess, but overall I have to say it was a good day. The chicane? For the first time in my career they are top-3 in Sector 1, so that’s an advantage for us. This addition makes braking on Turn-3 a little less fun, but it’s something that benefits us. How do I defend myself in the race? I do not know. In the end it is as usual. Friday we have a scary step and on Saturday we go well, Sunday depends. It is difficult to know what can be done, whether we can overtake or not. However, I hope to have a good race“.
