Known as El Diablo, Fabio Quartararo was born in Nice on 20 April 1999. He realized his passion for motorcycle racing at the tender age of four and would soon move to Spain to develop his career – with success. He competed in the national championship in the 50, 70, and 80cc categories between 2008 and 2011, before winning the Pre-Moto3 national title in 2012.

In 2015 and 2016, Fabio raced in the Moto3 class before moving up to Moto2 in 2018. After two years in the class, and despite only one win, the Frenchman was promoted to the MotoGP class in 2019 as part of the Petronas Yamaha Sepang Racing Team. In his MotoGP debut year, he scored six pole positions and seven podiums (five second and two third places) to end his first season on a YZR-M1 in fifth place, earning him the Rookie of the Year title. The young Frenchman was even more spectacular in 2020, securing his first premier class win at Round One in Jerez, and repeating the dominant performance the next week at the same track. His third victory came in Catalunya and with four pole positions and two fastest lap records, Quartararo was unable to maintain his form throughout the season. He finished eighth in the overall standings but confirmed his enormous potential.

For the 2021 season, Quartararo had the unenviable task of replacing nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi at the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team. However, he claimed his first win with the Factory Team at only his second race with them. He went on to secure nine more podiums and four wins to claim the MotoGP World Championship. As a result, Fabio will be the man to beat in the 2022 season.


Born in Rome on December 12, 1994, The son of a racer, Franco has been riding bikes since he was old enough to walk thanks to his father, a former racer, who built his son’s first bike when he was two years old.

After moving to Pesaro, near Tavullia, Franco’s racing education started with the smaller categories and two years of success led to a season racing in the Cuna de Campeones series. His next step was the European Superstock 600 Championship, winning the title in 2013.

Morbidelli’s good results opened the door for three wildcard rides in the 2013 Moto2 World Championship at the San Marino, Japanese, and Valencian Grands Prix. The following season he was offered a full-time spot in the series, finishing fourth in 2016 and then, after eight wins and 12 podiums, he was crowned Moto2 World Champion in 2017.

Following his inaugural year in MotoGP in 2018, Franco joined the PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team in 2019 and showed his talent again, achieving his personal best finish of fifth place four times and qualified on the front row in three races.

In 2020, Franco delivered exceptionally well, overcoming some technical issues to deliver three wins and take second in the overall rider standings, finishing as the top independent rider.

2021 would have been Franco’s third season with PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team, but it was cut short by a knee injury. After a lengthy recovery process he stepped up to the Yamaha Factory team, debuting on the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP M1 at his home circuit for the San Marino GP. The final five races of the season were physically demanding for the recovering Italian, he made good progress and is looking forward to a competitive 2022 season now that he is recovered from the injury.
