Although Fabio Quartararo achieved excellent performances in qualifying, the Frenchman rider #20 made a difficult race day at the Gran Premio de España.

Starting from pole position, Fabio slotted into fourth place after the first corner. In a few laps, he took the leading race and also achieved the new fastest lap record of 1’37.770s on lap 8.

Fabio was on route to take his third-consecutive GP victory with 12 laps to go, when he suddenly experienced a severe case of arm pump. He lost his 1.4s lead in one lap and couldn’t defend his leading position. Unable to push due to the pain, he lost further positions over the next ten laps.


Even though if Fabio crossed the finish line in thirteenth, he showed a great perseverance. He’s now in 2nd place in the championship standings with a 64 points total. Yamaha and the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP team still heads the Constructor championship.

The next MotoGP race will be held at Le Mans (France) from 14th – 16th May 2021.


Position : 13th – Championship : 2nd – Points  : 64
