ASSEN (Netherlands): Fabio Quartaro will race in the Dutch MotoGP this weekend, aiming for a third straight victory and a massive world championship lead going into the summer break.After back-to-back victories in Barcelona and Germany, where he was struggling with injury, the reigning world champion is 34 points ahead of Aleix Espargaro in the riders standings.Quartaro is returning to the Assen track, where he won last year and finished third in 2019.The Frenchman commented, I am so happy with the win at the Sachsenring.

I enjoyed a few days of rest and am now feeling better, so I'm ready for the race in Assen.We have good memories from the team's trip to New York last year.The Yamaha rider was in a similar situation last year and only held on to win the championship by 26 points after winning the last six races winless.After winning in Germany last week, Quartaro said, I am not thinking of the championship.

Quatararo has maintained his lead despite his Yamaha not being the fastest bike in qualifying.The 23-year-old has only secured pole position in the first half of the campaign, while Ducati bikes have been fastest in seven of the ten final qualifying sessions.However, the Italian manufacturer has failed to get their riders to the finish line.Enea Bastianini has won three races but didn't finish as many as expected, while Francesco Bagnaia has three poles and two victories, only to retire after four.

Last weekend, he was enraged after collapsing out of nowhere after being on the pole for 91 points.Aprilias Espargaro is now the closest competitor to Ducati, given the company's woes.His first MotoGP victory came in Argentina earlier this season, and it was his first top-class victory.Johann Zarco, a Ducatis satellite Pramac team member, is a further 27 points behind in third place and finished second at the Sachsenring.

But if Quartaro wins again on Sunday, he could be out of sight by the time the campaign resumes at Silverstone in August.
