Fabio Quartararo has been one of the protagonists of the Catalan GP MotoGP, but this time not for a victory that gives him even more advantage in the world. The French pilot finished in the last laps with the overalls open for a failure that still cannot be explained, as he assured after the race.
“Really, I dont know what has happened. My overalls were wide open at the first turn, five or six laps to go, and I tried to get it right again but I couldn’t do it and it has been difficult to drive like that, but unfortunately it happened, “said Quartararo.

The Frenchman, who had already been sanctioned and lost third position for failing to yield the position between turns 1 and 2 to Australian Jack Miller, received another three seconds penalty at the end of the race, for not wearing the leather suit correctly and for detaching the chest protector that all riders must wear.

With the sanction, Quartararo went from fourth to sixth place in the race of Catalonia and in the world championship he continues to be the leader, but now with a fourteen-point advantage over his compatriot Johann Zarco.
The Yamaha rider was against a new punishment after the race, before knowing the sanction for his monkey. “I have already had a sanction today with which I do not agree Well, they gave me three seconds and I dropped from third to fourth. I think this sanction is enough. At the end the race is over, everyone is fine, “he said.
