No worries for Quartararo

No worries for Quartararo

Injured in a calf last weekend on the sidelines of the Portuguese Grand Prix, Fabio Quartararo was unable to attend this Tuesday for the presentation of the French Grand Prix. The French rider should, however, participate in the next round of the MotoGP world championship, in April in Austin (United States) for the Grand Prix of the Americas.

It was in the presence of Fabio Quartararo that the press conference to present the French Grand Prix should have taken place this Tuesday at Canal Plus headquarters. Hit in a calf, the French driver was forced to decline the invitation. No worries, however, for “El Diablo”. Certainly, it is indeed this injury contracted last weekend on the sidelines of the Portuguese Grand Prix which he finished in 7th position which forced the former world champion to give up this event which was on his agenda of the day.

However, the illness in question from which the Niçois has suffered since this 2nd round of the MotoGP world championship season should absolutely not prevent him from competing in the next meeting: next month (April 12 to 15) in Austin during the Grand Prix of the Americas. Before apologizing to the organizing committee of the French Grand Prix for Tuesday and reassuring all his fans by assuring them that his injury was not at all serious, Quartararo had in fact arranged to meet his supporters for the Austin’s inning on social media as if he had never been injured. “See you in Austin,” wrote the pilot, who nevertheless has to take exams in Barcelona during the day.

On Monday, an alert prevented him from working properly in Portugal

On Monday, “El Diablo” was not in Catalonia or Paris, however, but still in Portugal, in Portimao, where RMC Sport tells us that the Frenchman had “a lot of pieces to test”. However, Yamaha and “El Diablo” were not able to work as well as they had planned. The fault in particular is this calf injury. Quartararo had to stop very quickly after feeling a new slight alert. But enough that he couldn’t spin as much as he hoped.

“The worst conditions for a test, only six laps completed,” the person concerned complained afterwards. The latter, who has fifteen points after the first two races of the year (Editor’s note: he finished 11th in Qatar) and seems diminished today, should be fully back on track by April 12. And that’s the main thing.
