Time to mature like a fine French wine

They tell me that you must let fine French wine mature for a few years to enjoy drinking it at its very best. Their long wait and search for not only a French premier class Grand Prix winner but first ever French premier class World Champion had ended. Fabio Quartararo had just turned 15 years old at Le Mans, and I was suitably mighty impressed. He won the FIM Junior World Championship race on route to his second successive World title. He was still 15 years old and the World was at his feet. Seven podium finishes, Rookie of the Year and fifth in the World Championship. The only thing that was missing was that first premier class Grand Prix win. I will raise a glass with those French journalists who six years ago told me what to expect.
