France’s Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha YZR M 1) arrives as championship leader at this weekend’s French MotoGP Grand Prix at the Le Mans circuit, where he will have to fulfill many of the tasks that lie ahead.

Quartararo already knows what it’s like to win because he did it with some clarity. Portimao (Portugal), however, due to the duo’s excellent performance, they only gain a seven-point advantage over their close follower Spaniard Aleix Esparargaró and the Aprilia RS-GP, who are the original heroes at this start of the season.

The French driver, who is now the world champion, continues on his way without getting into his vehicle. Yamaha YZR M1 to the best “travelling buddy”, everything at meetings in France and biweekly Mugello (Italy), He may receive new developments from the manufacturer of Iwata, who is doing everything possible to persuade his champion to sign the contract renewal as soon as possible.

Fabio Quartararo’s sole purpose is to have the necessary weapons to compete, the main reason why he puts pressure on Yamaha, whose sole and main defender is the French, because he is neither Italian nor Italian. Franco Morbidelli neither the South African Darryn Binder from the official team nor the Italian Andrea Dovizioso from the satellite team are performing to the level expected of them, but when it comes to Africa, he has the advantage of being a rookie in the category. , this bestows certain “favors” on him.

Aleix Espargaró ranks firmly and regularly among the fastest in the category. Aprilia RS-GP, This is both the manufacturer’s noale Like the rider with the Granollers, they reached the elite of the category and made it to stay, but the same cannot be said for his teammate, Spaniard Maverick Viñales, who also did not feel comfortable on the bike.

In front of Fabio Quartararo and “His home”, Spaniard Marc Márquez (Repsol Honda RC 213 V) is expected to be closer and more competitive, taking short but continuous strides in pursuit of his best performance, while at the same time evolving a more effective motorcycle. the moment is not to your taste.

Teammate Pol Espargaró further complicated the situation and, apart from the podium in the inaugural race in Qatar, hasn’t finished picking up performance from his Repsol Honda RC 213 V, which keeps him “on the trigger” (Suzuki drivers, Spaniard Joan Mir and Suzuki drivers, 2023′ for renewal. Rumors that they don’t have it from now on and that they might even notify him when there are more. alex washes, They have already been informed by the Hamamatsu manufacturer, who retired from the competition at the end of the season.

Therefore, all alarms went off in the rest of the structures. world champion Joan Mir is one of the championship’s most sought-after drivers and Alex Rins is no slouch.

Both Mir and Rins are getting off to an ever-growing start to the championship, with the latter in second place. fourth position and first in sixth. Both need to support this behavior with a victory, but it is not unreasonable to think that sooner or later they will climb to the top of the podium.

Like Marc Márquez, Fabio Quartararo will have to take a close look at the official Ducati drivers since Italy. Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia Coming with his claim of victory in “Ángel Nieto” in Jerez de la Frontera and fifth in Spain, Australian Jack Miller maintains a very steady streak without forgetting the Italians. Enea Bastianini.

Bastianini on the satellite team Greasehe has two wins so far this season and is third in the championship, so his directors Ducati They’ve already got their eyes on him, thanks to the results achieved on the handlebars of last season’s prototype, the GP21.

Official KTM drivers, South African Brad Binder and the Portuguese Miguel Oliveira It is others that need to take a step towards being where the Austrian manufacturer expects it to be.

Spanish George Martin (Ducati Desmosedici GP22) is one of the drivers who, like his teammate French driver, started the 2022 season strongly, albeit erratically. Johann Zarco He could be one of the contenders for the victory, or at least the podium, who has one of his favorite venues at Le Mans.
