Quartararo Commits to Yamaha Amid Offers from Rival Teams, Aiming for Resurgence with ‘Family



Fabio Quartararo's representative unveils fresh insight on discussions regarding his career prospects from undisclosed competitors.

It was rumored that Fabio Quartararo had several choices beyond just Yamaha and Aprilia.

In 2021, the MotoGP titleholder secured a fresh agreement with Yamaha, extending his tenure for a minimum of two additional seasons and positioning him as the top earner among his peers on the circuit.

Aprilia's enthusiasm has been noted, but now Quartararo and his representative have disclosed that they had other opportunities to consider.

Tom Maubant, the representative for Quartararo, disclosed to TNT Sports while in Le Mans, "I'm now in a position to share. Everything is settled."

"I received proposals from virtually all parties."

Ultimately, Fabio had decided from the start that he wished to stick with Yamaha.

"From what was observed during the Sepang trial, the enhancement…

The decision was straightforward.

"Yamaha demonstrated significant enthusiasm in retaining him and ensuring his place on the team. This is something he will always remember."

Quartararo mentioned, "Naturally, I had to consider every brand."

"I received very attractive proposals from other producers."

"However, the manner in which [Yamaha] committed resources to the initiative. They provided me with the chance to become a MotoGP competitor.

We triumphed in competitions and secured titles as a team.

"We had reached the pinnacle. It's evident we're at the lowest point at this moment."

"Additionally, my pride – I desire to return alongside them."

His representative stated: "We're the kind of people who always remember the favors you've done for us in the past."

It's clear that Yamaha stands as a leading powerhouse in the realm of motorcycles.

"The individuals within the group are exerting significant effort."

"It's certain they'll return at some point, either sooner or later."

"Yamaha feels like home to us. Even during tough moments, we find joy because of our affection for everyone involved."

"Despite Fabio being upset following the race, his honesty shines through once he reaches the pit, where he is truly impressive."

Quartararo elaborated on his decision to remain with Yamaha despite their struggles, stating, "There were several factors involved."

"It wasn't a pledge of any sort, merely observations I've made."

"Regarding the newcomers who arrived last year, I inquired about the issue."

"Starting from our initial trial in Sepang alongside the new engineering team, whenever I inquired about solutions or identified issues, we evidently received clear responses."

"This experience transformed my perception of the project."

Upon meeting Max Bartolini for the first time, I bombarded him with countless inquiries regarding the situation within the red box.

"He had the ability to share all details with us. The expertise from Yamaha is truly exceptional."

"That played a significant role in my decision to remain."

In response to whether he has set a specific timeline for Yamaha to show progress, Quartararo stated, "I'm not in a huge hurry. I have faith in the project."

The initiative is set to conclude by the close of 2026.

"I aim to be prepared at the earliest opportunity, though it's an extensive project."

"Things are expected to improve by year's end."

Quartararo Highlights Yamaha's Neglect of Its Strengths

Quartararo outlined several challenges he encounters with his M1.

Significantly, he acknowledged that Yamaha has conceded their major edge in maneuverability as they focused on enhancing other aspects.

"He started by saying, 'When we brake, there's a lack of grip at the back.'"

"We lack the ability to halt effectively, we're deficient in maneuverability, and we're also lacking traction when speeding up."

"Numerous factors contribute, but notably, it's the maneuverability. Historically, Yamaha's standout feature has been its agility."

"We completely overlooked this significant aspect and must revisit it."

"We made a minor enhancement in power yet sacrificed everything else. It's crucial to figure out the reason behind this.

"We'll catch up to them and remain in contention."

Quartararo has not managed to place above seventh position in any of the five Grand Prix races this season.

He suffered a crash during his home event, the French MotoGP, last weekend while he was among the top six contenders. Despite this, it was seen as a positive sign given his competitive performance.

Quartararo discussed how his mindset has had to adapt due to the limitations of his motorcycle, stating, "It's challenging because, being an athlete and accustomed to winning, you have a different mental approach. We're aware that we're facing significant difficulties with our motorcycle."

"We're">king progress. However, it's challenging since we can't just show up at a circuit and declare that we're aiming for victory or a podium finish."

"The work we're engaged in at the moment holds significance for our future prospects."

Maintaining composure and avoiding fixation on the outcome is crucial.

Yamaha has a deep comprehension of the transformations MotoGP has undergone in recent years.

"For three years, we found ourselves at a standstill. It's clear to them now that our approach needs a complete overhaul."

"Observing since the end of December, I've noticed a complete transformation in Yamaha."

"Yet, when you've been riding essentially the same motorcycle for three years? And you attempt to overhaul everything?

Naturally, we had lost our direction. At the moment, we are making efforts to navigate our path.

"The fresh crop of engineers brings a novel mindset and an entirely distinct approach to their work."

"Our arrival is certain, though it won't be as soon as a week or even within three months. A considerable amount of time is necessary."

"I have a lot of faith in the Yamaha initiative.

"This explains my decision to renew my contract with Yamaha."
