Fabio Quartararo, after his retirement during the Dutch GP: “A rookie mistake”

Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha, forced to retire at the Dutch Grand Prix) at the Canal + microphone: “I made a rookie mistake, I wanted to push too much from the start. It is with these mistakes that we learn for the future. It’s really a silly mistake. We could have very well had a very good rhythm and fought for the victory. These are mistakes that make me learn. I went to apologize to Aleix Espargaro, because I think he would have been the winner, given the pace he had. He had a very good race.

“I stopped, the team told me to get back on track but I saw that there was something wrong. »

(After the first drop) I wanted to start again and score some points but I saw that the bike had a problem. I stopped, the team told me to get back on track but I saw that there was something wrong. I lost the rear a bit abruptly. We made a mistake on this circuit, but our potential is there. »

“It’s not fun to be exhausted to finish 13th”

Johann Zarco (Ducati-Pramac, 13th):(A race) very difficult. Anyway, I knew that I didn’t have the pace for the podium, that something was missing, and that was confirmed in the race. It was very complicated to keep the rhythm and, as it went on, I couldn’t get involved in the fight. […] It’s not much to play for, but the little lack of balance on the bike means we’re not in the right group and it doesn’t work. I’m disappointed, clearly. Finally, half disappointed because it’s good to resist, to take these three points and to see that I am still third in the Championship. […] But it’s not fun to run out to finish 13th. »
