Fabio Quartararo

Fabio Quartararo began riding motorcycles at the age of just four in his native France, although he would soon move to Spain to pursue a career in the sport. It wasn’t long before the youngster started to shine, winning various regional titles in Catalunya in small-cylinder categories between 2008 and 2011, before winning the PreMoto3 national title in 2012.

In 2013 at the age of fourteen, Quartararo made his Moto3 debut in the FIM CEV series and after a difficult start to the season he won the final three races to become the youngest ever champion. The Frenchman defended the title in style in 2014 with podium finishes in every race and nine victories from eleven races.

Such undoubted promise fast-tracked him to the Moto3 World Championship in 2015, just as the minimum age was lowered, allowing him to make his debut at fifteen years of age. After just five rounds Fabio already had two pole positions and a victory to his name, and he would end his rookie season in tenth place, finishing the following year in thirteenth. In 2017 he made the step up to Moto2 in what proved to be a difficult season for the youngster, who would have to wait until 2018 before making the next big stride forward, taking a first podium and win in the intermediate category and finishing the season in the top ten.

For 2019, Quartararo takes another big step in his career, as he makes his debut in the MotoGP World Championship with the PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team.
