Quartararo starts life with the factory Yamaha squad

He won’t be the only man making the switch from Petronas Yamaha SRT to the full factory concern, with crew chief Diego Guballini also following Quartararo across. The pair will have to wait a little while longer, though, to become properly accustomed to the 2021 Yamaha M1, with his first opportunity coming at the opening day of the Qatar Test on March 6th.
