I didn’t put anyone in danger as a driver and it was hard for me to ride like that. But it’s okay to see the true faces of some people. Just thank all the people who support me and who have helped me in these difficult times. See you next time, ”he wrote.
However, the championship leader spoke more calmly after what happened and made it clear that he should have been sanctioned more harshly. “I think looking back at what happened, I can be happy.

I was lucky ”, he assured.
After this confession, where he assured that he regretted what happened, Quartararo did not miss the chance to criticize the commissioners for the first sanction on Sunday. “The only penalty that I don’t agree with was shortening the track in the first two corners, because I don’t see it as fair. I lost seven tenths, but if I lost a second then they would not have penalized me. How do I know on the bike that I have lost seven tenths and not a second? It was a bit stupid, ”Fabio told Motosan.es.
