Moto GP: Fabio Quartararo wins again, Zarco fourth

2021-06-27T14:35:11.926Z

The world championship leader consolidates his position by winning his fourth race of the season on Sunday on the legendary Netherland track



As soon as he won, he immediately swapped his motorcycle for a golf club.

Without offending him, we will say that his driving is sharper than his swing.

Starting behind his teammate Vinales on Sunday in the Netherlands, the Yamaha rider got the better of the Spaniard to win for the first time on the Assen track.

This is his sixth career success in Moto GP, his fourth victory of the season.

The 22-year-old Niçois got off to the best start by toasting Vinales entry.

But “El Diablo” was then passed in turn by Francesco Bagnaia from the third corner.

After a battle lasting six laps, the French driver managed to get back on the Italian to take the lead.

He will not let go of his advantage, despite a close proximity to the Spaniard Vinales, who returned to second in a Grand Prix marked by the spectacular (not serious) fall of the nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi.

“The race was difficult, I struggled to overtake Pecco (Bagnaia), I struggled with my right arm throughout the weekend, I could have been faster but I was really in pain on the arm, said Fabio Quartararo after the race.

Hit in the right forearm in May at the Spanish Grand Prix, the leader of the drivers' classification in the category was forced to go through the operation box, in order to cure a "cubital trap".
