MotoGP, Pernat: “Quartararo asked Yamaha for 20 million euros for his extension”

Christmas is just around the corner and Carlo Pernat (in a special episode of our Bar Sport which you can watch above) has made a list of the good and bad among MotoGP constructors. But the manager from Genoa did not limit himself to that. He also revealed some indiscretions in the driver market with a view to 2023.

Drivers and designers are already preparing, like world champion Fabio Quartararo, who apparently wants to have his title paid off financially: “According to the information I have, Quartararo has already made a very large request to Yamaha. I understand that he asked for twenty million euros“, Revealed Pernat.

The Frenchman has lofty goals and is also aware that Honda may need him as it is not yet clear what Marquez’s terms will be.

The next few months will be fundamental. In the meantime, this year ends in 2021 with Pernat’s certificates for the designers.

Ducati: “You deserve a nice nine. They have had the most powerful motorcycle in the past, as Bastianini proved when he finished on the podium with the Desmosedici in 2019. You can’t do that unless you ride a competitive bike. They are the ones who did the best. Gigi did a great job.

Honda: “I’ll give a brilliant four, and that’s only thanks to Marquez, who won three races. Otherwise they would have got a two. You got it all wrong. Marc has solved a few problems. “

Yamaha: “I’ll give the title winner an eight, but they deserve a four for politicsbecause he didn’t give Morbidelli the official bike, because he has a ridiculous satellite team. I add half a point to a sixth average just because they won the world championship. “

Suzuki: “The downfall was that Sahara took on the dual roles of team manager and technical director. “

Aprilia: “I’m giving them a tight mark because they’ve been making concessions for years. The bike has evolved, but not as much as I expected. They managed the racing department well, there was a podium, but then their performance deteriorated. “

KTM: “Your grade is 5. They are a big money company and a major sponsor, however They have done poorly this year, both from a technical point of view and in terms of leading their drivers. “
