Quartararo: “I've played the track on the video game”

Quartararo: “I've played the track on the video game”

It is time for Fabio Quartararo to set his sights on the #ArgentinaGP after achieving his first ever Moto3™ Podium in Austin.

The Estrella Galicia 0,0 rider became the sixth youngest ever podium finisher in the sixty-seven year history of motorcycle Grand Prix racing at the Circuit of The Americas. A feat that is made even more impressive by the fact he hasn't been to most of the circuits on the calendar before, and has to learn the track on a computer game.

Fabio Quartararo:
"The podium finish in Austin was a great way to prepare for the Argentinian Grand Prix this weekend. That result gives us confidence and a lot of motivation, but we will be riding at a new track for us and we have to keep up the same way of working as at the opening two rounds. I've studied videos of last year and played the track on the video game console, taking note of the braking references. It seems quite tricky and varied. There are many fast corners where you're really tucking onto the bubble, but leaning over a lot. I like that, so I can’t wait to try it."
