As the MotoGP season is awaiting its eighth round with the much-anticipated Italian Grand Prix in Mugello, French rider Fabio Quartararo sat down to talk about his aspirations for the upcoming race. The 23-year-old reigning MotoGP World Champion has already won a race in Portugal, and he wishes to aim for a second race victory in Mugello, so that he can strengthen his World Championship lead in this 2022 season.
Fabio Quartararo, who races for Yamaha, has previously won the Italian Grand Prix in 2021, when the racer showed his brilliance in the race course in Mugello. This year, he looks forward to repeating his winning feat to score some precious points for his team.

Fabio Quartararo has got the lead in the World Championship standings as of now, but his close rivals Aleix Espargaro of Aprillia and Enea Bastianini of Ducati are breathing down his neck. To make sure he leaves a comfortable gap between himself and the rest of the grid, Fabio needs a wonderful result in the Italian Grand Prix.
While speaking of the upcoming Italian Grand Prix and Fabio’s expectations from it, the reigning World Champion said, “After a week off, we are racing at Mugello, which is a track I really like. Last year I won here, and that was a great race and a great feeling, especially because it was at my team’s home GP.”
He also said, “This weekend, riding here will be even better because the fans will be there watching and enjoying the sessions. I’ll try to win again. As always, I’m going to try and give it my 100%.”
Now, it is to be seen if Fabio can maintain his lead in the Championship table or if he will be usurped from his throne by Espargaro, who is only 4 points behind him, and Bastianini who has 8 points less than Fabio Quartararo.
