Yamaha’s Fabio Quartararo admits he’s “lost” about what to do after an arm-pump problem robbed him of a commanding MotoGP Spanish Grand Prix victory.

Yes, sad and worrying news. He already had surgery on the same arm, syndrome des loges. Its gonna be difficult for him to remain concentrated, he's a good racer not a doc.

Great win for Miller, great day for Ducati, bad luck for Quartararo.

When is VR going to realise he is quite a few years past his prime, and stop flogging the proverbial dead horse? The true champions retire slightly after their peak, not after years of being a grid filler. Unfortunately he's tarnishing his record and his image, which is a shame. It's not like he needs the money, so why keep going for so poorly for so long? He's arguably the worst signing of the season, and I couldn't believe it when Petronas SRT signed him.

May be VR thinks he will be back one day or another resuscitating himself from ashes, he already knew some flat spots during his career. I think/ hope he will show that he can do wonders but probably not win again. Gone are the days when he could strongly require several bespoke frames or rear arms.

Well done Miller on that win, but big mystery about Fabio on why he suddenly lost pace. Hopefully we’ll find out before too long

I thought he's already confirmed that it was Arm Pump?

I did put a post 151 on regarding this above, and it was arm pump.

I wouldn't call it weird per se. The following have all needed surgery for arm pump:
Dani Pedrosa
Casy Stoner
Stefan Bradl
Loris Baz
Cal Crutchlow (both arms)
Pol Espargaro
Jorge Lorenzo
Hector Barbara
Scott Redding

This is the second time for Quartararo, having previously gone under the knife in 2019:

I was talking about how it affected him during the race not the surgery. Dear oh dear, some people are so quick to jump to conclusions

Boy oh boy, good to hear it was not the front tyre it would have been a disaster. What a relief it affects only the right arm and not the "clutch" arm used for the turn signal too. Will he be able to scratch his nose and b*lls like Rossi in the near future? I wonder, I wonder, boy oh boy!

This reminds me that a certain Mick D, when retiring "on his toes", left a legacy of braking hard…Hope this comment is weird enough to match some other's!

A 'low morale' Spanish MotoGP weekend ends on a more positive note for Valentino Rossi at the post-race test; "We finished with a good feeling, because I am able to ride in a better way and improved my pace a lot."

Valentino Rossi admitted morale was 'very low' after his Spanish Grand Prix came to a conclusion, where he had started, in just 17th place.

But the Monday test at least allowed the Italian and his Petronas Yamaha team some 'shy smiles' as Rossi lapped within 0.8s of factory Yamaha pace setter Maverick Vinales for 12th on the timesheets.

It was nothing to celebrate, but that position was higher than Rossi had managed during the grand prix weekend.

"After the race and the whole weekend, my morale and the morale of my team was very low, because we have to try to be faster. Today things were a bit better. We sometimes had a small smile at some points," Rossi said.


The nine-time world champion, who has only finished in the points once in his four Petronas appearances, completed 73 laps of the Jerez circuit as he sought to improve his feel and performance on the latest M1.

Like team-mate Franco Morbidelli, Rossi had a new front fender and new carbon fibre swingarm to try, plus some electronic settings.

Rossi is never going to reach his previous heights, but I do hope he is able to find more pace to be higher up. It’s not satisfying to see him only making up the numbers

Agreed, touring around at the back is not good to watch

Good information, thanks Gordon.
