Leaders Fabio Quartararo failed to repeat his success at Sunday's British Grand Prix after rival Francesco Bagnaia began to pose a threat with consistent performances to win two races in a row. "We seem to have made a mistake by not trying the hard rear tire in practice," said Quartararo regretting using the medium tire in the race. "I started perfectly and before the long lap everything went well but after being behind the riders my rear tire was very hot, we don't know why. For sure going behind the other riders is difficult," said the Yamaha rider. MotoGP official. "I think this is the best result with the medium tyre. We can see all the top ten riders on the rear hard tyre, only us on the medium," said Quartararo.

Meanwhile, Bagnaia moved up to third place and is 49 points off the top with eight races remaining. "We have to watch out for Pecco, because Pecco is making the biggest difference at the moment in the last two races, so he's the one we have to watch out for.

 "It will be a difficult task, because now we arrive at races which, I wouldn't say difficult, but Austria with a lot of straights, Misano where Pecco is always fast, Aragon, so there are going to be tough races." Quartararo concluded. The MotoGP circus will continue to the Red Bull Ring, Spielberg for the Austrian GP on 21 August.
