The jury is out – and of all the cars on the Misano circuit on Wednesday, the Yamaha Monster Energy team saw the fastest rider!
Honored by none other than Fabio Quartararo, who – according to a press release issued by Monster Energy Yamaha via The world of road racing – he really likes the bike that Yami gave him.
The relevance of this is night and day; if you recall, Quartararo refused to sign a contract with the Japanese marque until they could give him a bike worthy of his talents – and fair.
After all, this is the reigning 2021 MotoGP champion.
“His improved performance with his YZR-M1 put the Frenchman in a great mood as he tested fairings and winglets in the afternoon.” – says the report.
“Quartarara clocked 288.3 km/h in Wednesday’s pre-morning race, third on the clock, less than 2 km/h slower than Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racig). used a slipstream to achieve that speed, but was still very pleased with what Iwata produced.”
With the 2022 World Championships just around the corner (and Team Blue’s supposed new chassis), we’ll be anxiously awaiting the results to hit the 2022 rosters.
