L’Equipe: Quartararo ready for Grand Prix Racing

Expectation is building in the French press ahead of the debut of Fabio Quartararo in the World Championship next year. The prestigious sports daily L'Equipe has enthused about Quartararo’s brilliant performances en route to his second successive FIM CEV Repsol title this year.

The French teenager will ride in the Moto3™ World Championship for the Estrella Galicia 0’0 team next year. L'Equipe quote Quartararo as stating that he believes he will be ready for Grand Prix competition next season at the age of 15, with a regulation tweak permitting his participation before his 16th birthday as the winner of the FIM CEV Repsol Moto3™ title.

Quartararo said, “Presumably the decision has been taken because they believe that the FIM CEV Repsol champion has a sufficient level to race in the World Championship. Also I will not be the first to debut at 15. With the regulations from a few years ago, several riders did it including Lorenzo and Marquez.”
