Quartararo has yet to sign a contract for the 2023 MotoGP season

Fabio Quartararo, the defending champion, claims he has “not signed anything” yet concerning his 2023 MotoGP career, despite speculations that a contract had been reached during the Spanish Grand Prix.


The management of the Frenchman is in talks with Yamaha about a contract renewal for 2023, with various news agencies suggesting that a contract had been reached on Saturday.

When questioned about the discussions with Quartararo, Yamaha chief Lin Jarvis disputed this to Motorsport.com, adding that a contract should be concluded by the end of June.

Quartararo’s management confirmed earlier this month that competing manufacturers had approached them about 2023, but the Frenchman said nothing had been signed as of Saturday in Jerez.

“About this, my manager of course is talking to Yamaha,” he replied when asked to clarify the rumours about his future.  

“But during the race weekend I prefer to focus on my thing and back home we always have a discussion about the weekend, how the race went, but also my future.  

“But on Monday I will have more information. I can say that I have not signed anything.” 

Quartararo will start second in Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix at Jerez, with Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia breaking the Yamaha racer’s 100 percent pole record at the Andalusian track.

Quartararo admitted he was “very distant” from pole on Saturday, but he still considers his top speed gives him a “good chance” to earn victory of his second race of the season.

“I didn’t make five in a row, but I was really far,” Quartararo said having qualified over four tenths off the pace of Bagnaia.  

“Pecco made an amazing lap. To be honest, with the conditions we had on track today, the heat on the track, I was really impressed. 

“By our job I think we made a really good pace in FP4 with used tyres, so I think that we have great pace, a great opportunity to fight for the victory tomorrow.  

“But conditions will be totally different tomorrow after Moto3, Moto2 race.  

“We know in this kind of track with the heat, it’s going to be totally different. Every year in the races I’ve been pretty fast, so we have a great opportunity.”
