The Frenchman from Yamaha tells how he gave the gas to 2022: “I thought about the top speed that wasn’t there and then I told myself that I had to do with what I had. From there, only good results”. The Spaniard from Aprilia: “We have to start the most aggressive GPs. The next two races are important.”

“I had two exceptional weekends in Barcelona and Mugello. Last year, on the other hand, it went well both in Germany and in the Netherlands. I am very motivated and I hope to win here too. With all these left-hand corners, with such a short track. , the race seems to last two hours. It will be a really tough appointment “. These are the impressions of Fabio Quartararo on the eve of the first free practice of the German GP. The German track, which has the particularity of running counterclockwise, will not be an easy race according to the Yamaha world champion. “There are many left corners – said Fabio – it is very short, but the race is mentally long, with all these left corners it seems to last longer. But this applies to everyone”.
Fabio explains when the leap in quality this season took place: “I think it was in Austin, where I was not at 100%, like in Qatar and Argentina. I always had top speed in mind that wasn’t there, then in Austin I told myself it was time to finish it because the bike wouldn’t change, I told myself that I had to do the best with what I had. That was the mental shift, from Portimao I always finished in the top 5. I always try to have a positive attitude because even in negative situations there is something to learn. Here we will not have any news on the bike, perhaps the swingarm tested in the tests “.
Aprilia’s rival Aleix Espargaro wants to redeem the Spanish weekend, which didn’t let him sleep: “I’ll try to forget the mistake as soon as possible – said the Spaniard – but this time it will be difficult. On Sunday I couldn’t sleep, I was angry with myself. I kept thinking about that mistake so I decided to take a trip to Disneyland with my children and I managed to forget about it, disconnecting helped. Thinking back to Spain I must say that I was angry because I am interested in going the most As fast as possible, we cannot start so cautious at the beginning of a GP. But the important thing is to treasure these experiences so as not to repeat them “.
On ambitions, the Iberian is aiming high: “These last two races before the summer break are very important – he continues – I hope to be able to earn some points to get there well. Goal? I will try to fight for the podium both here and in Assen. I think I deserved a nice holiday this year. Germany for April is always difficult, with this year’s bike I think I can do well and I will try to have fun, turn on my brain for a good lap in qualification and maybe fight for the podium on Sunday “.
