Fabio Quartararo wants to imitate Valentino Rossi
With the German Grand Prix filed away, with Fabio Quartararo extending the MotoGP rankings, the time has already come to get back on track: the luggage has been transferred to Assen, with the Cathedral that will host the Dutch Grand Prix.
The Frenchman of Yamaha, who won the MotoGP race last year, will do everything possible to give an encore, breaking a taboo that has now lasted for almost twenty years.
The last to win the Dutch Grand Prix in the Queen Class for two years in a row was in fact Valentino Rossi, first with his Yamaha both in 2004 (when he got on the podium in the company of Gibernau and Melandri) and in 2005 (the Doctor placed first in front of Melandri and Edwards).
Quartararo, who has finished on the podium in five of his last six MotoGP races, has taken 26 podiums since 2019, more than any other rider in the top category. The Frenchman has been on the podium in his two previous appearances at the Dutch TT in MotoGP (in 2019 he finished third and, as mentioned, first in 2021).
