MotoGP: Fabio Quartararo eyes up third MotoGP win in Brno
Fabio Quartararo comes into the third round of the MotoGP World Championship fresh from back-to-back victories at the Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto.
Quartararo put in two dominant performances during the opening two rounds of the season, and heads to the Brno circuit as the championship leader by over ten points.
Last year, the French rider finished the Czech Grand Prix in seventh position and will no doubt be aiming for a podium fight in 2020.
Speaking ahead of the Czech Grand Prix, Quartararo said:
Fabio QuartararoThis week at home has been good to think about and enjoy the first two GPs of the season. Brno is a track that I really like. We know from last year that we can be fast there and that we have the performance, even if it is not the best place for our bike. There are a lot of great corners that make up the circuit but the last corner is one of the best. You have to go in with a lot of corner speed but also prepare to take the perfect line for the straight. It’s great to be going there after taking two wins and we’re looking at fighting for the podium this weekend. Our expectations are high and I can’t wait!
Team-mate Franco Morbidelli had a bitter end to his opening two rounds, suffering a mechanical failure in the second race of the season. Morbidelli lies tenth in the overall standings. The Italian has been working hard ahead of the Czech round, speaking to the PETRONAS Yamaha team, Morbidelli said:
Franco MorbidelliMy expectations for Brno are high, especially as it’s a circuit that I really like. In fact, I think it’s one of the best on the calendar! It’s a very old-style track as it’s long, wide, technical and fast. Looking at the level that we had in Jerez, we are expecting good things this weekend. I’ve also had some good results there in the past. Of course, this year we’ve got to be better and improve our record there. I think we will have some good battles and I’m looking forward to going there, with the aim of finishing in the top-five.
The MotoGP Championship will head to the Brno hills in Czech Republic on August 7-9th for the first of the triple headers.
