The French Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha YZR M 1), leader in the provisional classification of the MotoGP World Championship, says he really wants to start at Assen, because “it is one of my favorite circuits”.
“It is completely different from Sachsenring but the bike is working well and in 2019 I ended up very happy with the result achieved here and it is a circuit that I like, because it is very fast and I think we can do very well”explains Quartararo.

“Sachsenring was not the best circuit for us, but we were still able to go fast and here we reached a circuit where he has always been fast, he is the last winner and I think that even if he works in his own way he will be able to go fast, but if he wants to copy us, it is not a big problem either, “admits Quartararo.
