in qualifying for the Grand Prix of the USA was Fabio Quartararo with his Yamaha the first pursuer of the Ducati Quintet. The world champion experienced a turbulent afternoon at the Circuit of the Americas, because he crashed in his first run in curve 19.

"I have given my best," Quartararo comments on the crash, where he remained unhurt. "I realized that if I want to have a good race tomorrow, then I have to attack 100 percent. Will it be warmer, then it gets harder for us with the grip."

"That's why I had to go over the limit. But I'm satisfied because I have given my best. There is no more to say, because a fall can happen." Quartararo hurried back to the box and qualified with his second M1 as a sixth.

  This e-bike concept is completely wild – and you could be riding it next year The Yamaha Concept B-01 isn't just built to grab attention at shows, and will soon go into production.It's only March, but this is already proving to be an exciting year for e-bikes.

He spoke of no error-free round. His residue on the poles of Jorge Martin was six tenths of a second. Theoretically, a place in the second star series is a good starting position. But Quartararo has five Ducatis in front of him.

is the starting position therefore a nightmare scenario? "Honestly, I do not think that because you are already in front of me," the Frenchman replies. "It does not matter if it's Suzuki, Honda or Ducati, because all motorcycles are super fast."

"In my view, Bastianini has the strongest Pace next to Marc [Marquez]. Martin and Bagnaia are not quite as strong, but all will have a good pace. We have to wait for the tire wear, because we are not so bad."

is realistic against the supposed Ducati-supervision a podium area, or will it go for quartararo to damage to the damage to bring as many World Cup points as possible? "I have no special destination, I want to drive a good race and have fun," says Quartararo.

"I have to try to have a good start. The whole weekend we had good starts. But here it is different because it's uphill, I need a great first round and then I need to manage if I can improve."

Quartararo was also in Austin who by far the best Yamaha driver. Andrea Dovizioso qualified as 15th and Franco Morbidelli as the 19th Rookie Darryn Binder had a fall and became last.
