A third win in Barcelona puts Petronas Yamaha SRT rider, Fabio Quartararo, back on top of the 2020 MotoGP championship with 108 points. The young Frenchman hopes to further extend his lead this weekend in Le Mans where he has a big home advantage where he also hopes to make amends with a better result than last year.
Another triple-header awaits the entire MotoGP paddock where Fabio Quartararo targets to be the first Frenchman in the premier class history to win on the home turf of Le Mans. It won’t be an easy battle as other Yamaha, Ducati, and Suzuki riders are all eager to grab some crucial points as the season draws closer to its end.
According to Quartararo, “I’m really happy to be able to have a home GP this year and it’s a special feeling to go there as championship leader. Le Mans is a track that I really like. It is going to be important for us to fight for the victory and score as many points as possible. Normally it is a track that I do well at, I did finish eighth there last year but it was a really fast-paced race and I’m hoping to continue the good form from the Barcelona weekend.”
“I just hope the fans that are allowed to come bring warm conditions with them because it is quite cold at the moment! I’m just really happy to have a home GP, as there are not a lot of races this year,” added the Petronas Yamaha SRT rider.
