A poor performance for Fabio Quartararo. Under the heat of the British sun, Sunday August 7, the Yamaha rider had to settle for an eighth place, far behind the Italian Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati) who was the fastest on the Silverstone circuit, during the twelfth round of the MotoGP championship. Fourth on the starting grid, the Niçois never managed to catch up on the lead. The fault of a bad choice of tires and a badly negotiated long lap. But the important thing for him was above all to finish the race ahead of Aleix Espargaro. A mission that the Yamaha rider succeeded in finishing this British Grand Prix one place ahead of his Spanish rival. In the general classification, he maintains a 22-point lead over Espargaro and a 49-point gap with today’s winner Bagnaia. Everything was going in the direction of Johann Zarco this weekend. On Saturday, the other Frenchman in the race had set the fastest time in qualifying to claim pole position. Today, in front of the 41,000 spectators present around the Towcester track, Zarco was even a favorite for victory in Great Britain, his first in MotoGP at the age of 32. After just four laps in the lead, the driver Ducatti-Pramac lost control of his motorcycle in a slow turn, before to finish his race in the gravel. Bitter, the French driver regretted his fall at the microphone of Canal + just after the race: I got off to a good start, it was nice to lead the race. But falling like that, it puts the balls“. He will have the opportunity to redeem himself in two weeks, on August 21, during the Austrian Grand Prix.
