Fabio Quartaro achieved his greatest career success after his third season at Moto GP and became the first Frenchman to win a Moto GP title. In the Yamaha team, they are overjoyed with the huge success they have not had since 2015 and Jorge Lorenzo.
Crew chief Diego Gubellini has revealed a key moment in Quartaro's career for which he has only words of praise "Fabio came to MotoGP without having managed to stand out in Moto2," crew chief Diego Gubellini, who followed Quartararo to the Yamaha factory outfit after working with him at the Petronas SRT squad, told Motorsport.com.
"That freed him from pressure and gave him the freedom he needed to understand that the important thing was to understand the bike and adapt to it, before thinking about making big changes." "For Yamaha, that was a great help.
"Fabio is a rider with whom you can work very well. Among other things, because he accepts his share of the blame when he is at fault." "[He] is easy-going because that's his character. He's very polite on a day-to-day basis, he's not a 'prima donna'"
Lin Jarvi on Quartaro
Yamaha principal Lin Jarvi believes that one of the most important characteristics that a Quartaro has is positivity. He especially praised his character, which is why he is a favorite with most fans of this sport "Personality is one of his strengths," says Jarvis.
"He's a good kid with the ability to go very fast on a bike, as well as being aggressive at the right times. But, combined with that, he also brings a huge dose of positivity. "Some riders need an enemy to perform at their best, to empower themselves and try to destroy their rivals, but Fabio doesn't.
"He doesn't need enemies, he needs rivals to compete against, and I think that's why he's so popular even among his opponents." Quartararo's former SRT team manager Wilco Zeelenberg has a feeling that Quartaro is much different than other drivers he has worked with "[Fabio is] someone who's easy to work with.
Jorge [Lorenzo] knew what he wanted; the rest didn't matter to him. Fabio is very different. He's very open-minded and that gives him a great capacity to adapt." "Mind you; he also has his share of ego, because he wants to beat everyone and because he hates to lose. "But at the same time he shows a lot of respect, which is exceptional in this environment."
