El Diablo has successfully become the MotoGP world champion in 2021. This title is the first for a tuning fork manufacturer, since it was last presented by Jorge Lorenzo in the 2015 season.
In total, 10 podiums – including five wins – as well as five pole position successfully packed Quartarar, making him the most consistent racer throughout this year’s Grand Prix world championship.
Quartararo’s success has not only boosted his popularity in the eyes of fans, but also in front of his opponents. It’s not surprising, therefore, that he won a lot of praise.
Speaking exclusively to the Spanish edition of Motorsport.com, Jarvis said personality is one of Quartararo’s strengths.
and facts rider The French need not create enemies to motivate themselves which has earned him universal popularity.
“He’s a really good guy, and he also has the ability to go really fast, be aggressive when needed and overtake when needed,” said Jarvis.
“He always brings a lot of positive things to the team. There are racers who need the enemy to be the best, to crush their opponent, but Fabio is not like that.
“He’s not looking for enemies, but rivals to compete with. If Fabio is so popular with other racers, it’s because he doesn’t need to create those enemies.”

It was this positive personality that made Lin Jarvis feel comfortable and easy to work with Fabio Quartararo.
“It’s good for MotoGP to have a champion with that personality and passion,” said Jarvis.
“It’s not easy to find. If we can keep him, we will definitely do well in the post-(Valentino) Rossi era.
“Throughout my career I have worked with some drivers who have made it very easy for me, and others much more difficult to control.
“The problem is that good people usually don’t win.
“In that sense, Fabio is a champion which makes it easy for me to work with him.”
Quartararo will remain with Yamaha until the end of the 2022 MotoGP. However, after being disappointed with the M1 following the Jerez test, he will not sign a new contract until he sees real progress from his bike in the Sepang pre-season test.
