It is with great pleasure that Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. confirm Fabio Quartararo as a Factory Yamaha rider for the 2023 and 2024 MotoGP season.
Quartararo has shown great skills, comradery, and consistency so far in his two years with the Yamaha Factory Racing Team in the MotoGP World Championship. The successful partnership led to his first MotoGP World Championship Title last year, in his very first season with the Factory team. He is currently also leading the 2022 standings by 8 points.
Further Yamaha highlights on the Frenchman’s résumé are 6 race wins and 14 podiums with the Factory Team in the 2021 and 2022 season so far, as well as 3 race wins and 10 podiums with the satellite team the two years prior. A contributing factor to his success were his 16 pole positions and 38 front row starts out of a total of 59 Grand Prix weekends aboard the YZR-M1.
These achievements on top of his undeniable talent, unequalled motivation, and infectious cheerful personality have Yamaha fully confident in their partnership with the 23-year-old.
