2021 MotoGP™ recap: French Grand Prix

On Saturday, Quartararo stuck his Yamaha on pole position, as drama awaited on Sunday. The race was declared dry, and it started in dry conditions, but it wasn’t long before rain started to fall heavily. The first flag-to-flag race in years unfolded at Le Mans. Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) crashed out of the lead to hand Quartararo P1 in the wet, but despite two Long Lap Penalties for speeding in pitlane, Jack Miller (Ducati Lenovo Team) had blistering pace.
