Fabio Quartararo not sure to stay with Yamaha? A subject that gives ideas to other builders, eager to engage its services. Among them : Honda. And when The Gazzetta dello Sport talks about the HRC in Nice, he confirms that Yamaha is not the only brand to want to enter it in 2023:

I’m taking my time. It is not to wait, but I want to take one step at a time, it is still too early to talk about what will happen. “
