Yamaha boss issues statement on Quartararo penalty

Yamaha Motor Racing Managing Director & Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™ Team Principal Lin Jarvis has expressed his disappointment with the long-lap penalty for the upcoming Monster Energy British Grand Prix that Fabio Quartararo received from the FIM MotoGP™ Stewards panel following a race incident with Aleix Espargaro on lap 5 of the TT Assen race. Jarvis states, “Fabio Quartararo, the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™ Team, and Yamaha have always striven for fairness and sportsmanship in MotoGP™. The Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™ Team disagree with Sunday‘s decision by the FIM MotoGP™ Stewards panel for the following reasons:. – Whilst Quartararo has admitted to making a mistake in Turn 5 at the TT Circuit Assen on lap 5, Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™ view this as a race incident. – Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™ acknowledges that Aleix Espargaro‘s race was affected, but the severeness of the impact is a matter of conjecture. Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™ feel the FIM MotoGP Stewards panel is measuring the severity of race incidents with inconsistent, subjective standards.
