Tenth time for the leader of the World Championship, who however thinks he can do better in tomorrow’s Free Practice. The victory, however, this weekend seems to be a utopia for him.
Fabio Quartararo was the author of a tenth time below expectations on this first day of the weekend at the Red Bull Ring, home of the Austrian MotoGP Grand Prix.
However, the world leader thinks he can do better than what he did today. Tomorrow he will have to file a series of mistakes that today have slowed him down. First of all, the use of the most powerful map of the engine of his M1.
“On the tire issue, I think it will be much better here than in Brno, because in Free Practice 1 I made some mistakes and I forgot to change the engine mapping, so it was my mistake. That’s why I didn’t go beyond tenth place. “.
“Our performance wasn’t bad at all. I got a 1’25” 1 on a track where we have always struggled. Also, this morning the set-up of the M1 wasn’t so good. ”
“I’m not very satisfied today, but I think we can be because the conditions of the bike were not good. Tomorrow things can improve. We have potential to extrapolate from the bike.”
Quartararo then clarified how this weekend, if things do not change drastically, it will be practically impossible for him to fight for success.
“Unfortunately, however, I cannot say that we can fight for the victory here. I will do my best, I will try to bring home the maximum points and then get to Misano, where we will then have a series of favorable tracks for us.”
