Fabio Quartararo: Yamaha Shows a Lot of Progress at the Jerez Test

RiderTua.com – After finishing 5th in the sprint then 15th in the main race, Fabio Quartararo finished Monday’s test at Jerez in 18th place more than 1 second adrift. Meanwhile his teammate Alex Rins was in 14th position, only 0.6 seconds less than the best time recorded by the fastest racer in the test, Fabio Di Giannantonio (VR46 Ducati).

The Yamaha M1 also underwent some visual changes. El Diablo explained, “We tried and tested a lot of things. There was a new swingarm, a new chassis, new electronics and a new aero package. It’s hard to draw conclusions at the moment. There were some positive things, but unfortunately there were some things that didn’t work out. We will undergo another test at Mugello.”

Fabio Quartararo added that the engine is a special testing engine, the same as a racing engine. But only used during tests. The fairing is different. Sometimes the little things can only be seen in the data. The feeling is quite neutral. They tried to improve steering behavior.

“I felt a little improvement when entering the corner, but not at the apex/apex of the corner. I got more feedback from the front tyre, that’s what I was looking for. But it’s not that big, there are still a lot of shortcomings that we have. I have to do a lot of things with strength,” added the 25-year-old French rider.

El Diablo revealed, “We used to be very fast in turn 4. I knew exactly what I had to do in this corner. That was the problem with the steering behavior. This brought with it a few other things. I had to lean the bike a little, so it wasn’t too aggressive. Now we are analyzing everything and I hope we can rediscover that feeling in 2022.”

According to Fabio, the new chassis is completely different from before, according to him this is a big step. “In the past, it was always small progress. That was the first step for us to see if this was the right path. We need one more test to know where we are really going. I think we will use some of the things at Le Mans that we have “We tested it. It’s always good to try updates on different tracks. It’s interesting to see how my feelings at the next three tracks are also very different,” concluded the 2021 MotoGP world champion.
