Why Yamaha has just six months to safeguard Quartararo's future

Yamaha's decision to dispense pre-season with the 2022 engine it had intended to use due to lack of reliability, the promises of improvement to Fabio Quartararo and the advance with which the rider market moves leaves the Japanese brand with less than six months to prevent the Frenchman from starting to look for a way out

Regardless of what happens at the final stop of the 2022 calendar in Valencia, where Francesco Bagnaia has everything in his favour to give Ducati the second riders' title in its history, no one in the entire MotoGP paddock has any doubt that Fabio Quartararo has performed well above the bike he has ridden.

This becomes very evident when you compare the reigning world champion's statistics with those of the other three riders competing on the same bike. Aside from being the only one to have won and been on the podium a total of eight times across the season, Quartararo has accumulated 235 points out of the total 308 points shared by all Yamaha riders, a ratio of 76.3%.
