SEPANG INTERNATIONAL CIRCUIT
MotoGP Day 3 Session (2pm)
Fabio Quartararo, born in Nice (France) on 20 April 1999, became the first non-Spanish rider since 2007 to secure the CEV Repsol Moto3 Title in 2013. At the start of the 2014 season he wasn‘t old enough to graduate to the World Championship level, so he competed in the CEV Repsol Moto3 again, once more taking the honours. In 2015, an exemption was introduced for the official minimum age, allowing Quartararo to make his World Championship debut in the Moto3 Class before his 16th birthday in April.
Quartararo‘s Grand Prix racing highlights include: two second places in Moto3 in 2015, a Moto2 victory (Catalunya) and second place in 2018, and five second places and two third places in the premier class in 2019. Last year the youngster secured the MotoGP Rookie of the Year award and Best Independent Team Rider distinction, having finished fifth in the overall standings.
