Fabio Quartararo, leader of the world championship in MotoGp, gave a long interview to the French press agency AFP, in which he also told of a joke made to Valentino Rossi and his teammates.
Fabio Quartararo, statements
First of all, however, he obviously spoke of his triumphant season so far: “I didn’t expect so much.
But I don’t look to the past, only to the future, I want to fight for victories, podiums and for a positive final goal. Maverick Viñales “The farewell doesn’t involve me emotionally. Professionally it’s a shame, Maverick is very fast and has pushed me beyond my limits many times this season.”
The exultation after the last victory went around the web: “The idea was born because last week we played it every day with Sam Lowes and Tony Arbolino. When I see Tom Maubant, my assistant, with the golf club it’s always a party.
He is the one who invented this beautiful moment, we always laugh together. Hitting a ball on the asphalt in the Netherlands was not as easy as on a lawn, especially because I was out of breath after the match and the ball was not in a raised position.
But I will improve myself, I will make good videos and I will also try them live ”. Comment on the European football championship: “I follow all the matches. Valentino and the Academy guys had their camper next to mine.
During the match we played jokes with Moubant and Arbolino: every time Austria had a chance we all screamed loudly, it was fun. Italy qualified after extra time, so I was trying to sleep at midnight and a half, but some guys from the Academy were celebrating and still making noise.
They had a shrill voice, but I couldn’t complain ”. Rory McIlroy talks after arrival in County Kilkenny yesterday. “The last time I was on the 18th green here was that prize-giving ceremony. Tiger Woods won and I somehow sneaked my way under the ropes on to the back of the green.
I was standing right behind him and his glove was still in his back pocket. I could have reached out and got it and ran, that would have been a good story to tell. Obviously I didn’t. It was the first time I’d seen him play live.
I still remember the first shot I saw him hit, the drive at the 5th, a par five. He hit 2-iron into the green. It was so cool. I’d idolised him growing up and to actually see the man in the flesh was pretty exciting”.
