Fabio Quartararo might be as good as ever, which makes no sense when you peruse the statistics, but makes complete sense when he passes the eye test weekend after weekend, fighting his opponents and his frustration on a Yamaha that has fallen behind the class-leading European machinery since his 2021 world title.

How long can the fast Frenchman wait? There were times in 2023 when Quartararo’s emotions looked set to boil over, but an odd strong Sprint here and Grand Prix podium there showed that there is still something in a world championship-winning partnership when the bike reluctantly submits to his demands.

Yamaha’s first winless season in 20 years earned the manufacturer testing concessions to regain competitiveness; how long that takes will be crucial for the factory to keep its biggest asset, with no shortage of suitors licking their lips if his ambition and Yamaha’s timetable continue along divergent tracks.
