Fabio Quartararo Talks About His Struggle To Become A Runner-up For The 2022 Mandalika MotoGP

Monster Energy Yamaha racer, Fabio Quartararo told his struggle to become the runner-up of the MotoGP Mandalika 2022, Sunday (20/3) this afternoon.

Fabio Quartararo initially started the Mandalika 2022 MotoGP race with a pole position first.

After the race started, Fabio Quaratararo experienced a decrease in speed due to the rain again at the Mandalika Circuit.

The winner of the 2021 MotoGP world champion last season was indeed not friendly with wet track conditions.

As a result, Quartararo had to give up his place in the leading position filled with Miguel Oliveira (KTM) and Jack Miller (Ducati).

Quartararo’s decline in speed was even more evident when he slipped into fifth place.

With that fifth position, Quartararo had to look at two other drivers, namely Johann Zarco (Pramac Racing) and Alex Rins (Suzuki Ecstar).

However, the rider nicknamed El Diablo did not just give up trying to improve his place.

Slowly but surely, El Diablo began to dare to spur his iron horse to win the duel from Rins.

He also rose to fourth position and tried to see the competition for the top two which was taken over by Zarco.

Miller’s decline became the momentum for Quartararo’s rise to push his motorbike up to third place.

At its peak, the French racer again showed his ability as world champion to force second place.

He successfully maintained the second position behind Oliveira who came out as the winner of the 2022 Mandalika MotoGP.

For the results of his struggle, the 22-year-old racer then vented his happiness.

“Good podium, the first one I reached in a track race was really wet, I’m very happy,” said Fabio Quartararo, quoted from the Skysport page.

El Diablo added that his struggle to reach the podium was not easy.

Moreover, the rainy conditions continue to wet the Mandalika Circuit.

“It’s not easy, because I’m more ready for a dry race,” said Quartararo.

“I knew I had the pace to win but then the rain came, which is always unknown.”

“When I was fifth I decided to push harder,” admits El Diablo.

“I realized I had a chance to play, I fought Zarco and managed to get behind Oliveira.”
