The Yamaha rider said he enjoys being “on the limit” despite having to fight for the championship lead.

The big picture: Quartararo is leading the MotoGP standings in the fight for the Championship title, with Francesco Bagnaia behind him by 48 points.


  • The rider admitted almost crashing multiple times during the San Marino Grand Prix, as he said he enjoys being “fully on the limit.”

What he said:

  • “Today to be honest I had three or four moments where I was close to being on the ground.”
  • “When I was trying to follow Pecco at turn 2, turn 3, and turn 13 I was full on the limit, and honestly, it’s like this that I’m enjoying to ride.”
  • “Of course, a victory is totally different, but I think it’s the first time I’m that happy for a second place – not because about the championship, but because I gave everything.”
