To win both races in 2021 with Maverick Vinales and Fabio Quartararo to a miserable ninth place conquered by El Diablo at the end of a race of extreme suffering that also recorded some excellent retirements that have improved the placement of the 1999 class, which otherwise would not have not even hit the top-10. It’s red alert in the house anyway Yamahacalled in two weeks to a ready redemption in Mandalika in Indonesia on a narrower track and on paper favorable to the agile – but not very powerful – M1.
Quartararo at the start was very effective, but already from the second lap, as happened several times in the past, being stuck in traffic brought the pressure of the front tire of the Yamaha M1 to the stars making it impossible for the reigning world champion to be able to strike up any comeback attempt.
“It is very difficult – has explained Fabio Quartararo to the microphones of Sky Sport MotoGP at the end of the Qatar Grand Prix – we already have enough problems and then from the second lap the pressure of the front tire went out of control. Ultimately this inconvenience added to the problems we already have was the recipe for disaster. I gave 100%, I can’t do more. Our pace at the end when we have no grip is not competitive. But the front tire pressure rose a lot and it was really difficult to drive. Last year I was almost the entire race in eighth-ninth position, but the pressure in that case was ok, more than manageable. Today from the second lap she got up really a lot instead. When I finally found myself alone, but the rear tire had less grip at that point. We make a difference in cornering and braking, but for the whole race I was unable to take advantage of these two strengths of ours ”.
