The clamor of the controversy for the episode that saw the protagonist in the Catalan GP Fabio Quartararo, relegated from fourth to sixth place by the race direction for having played the last stages of the race with his suit untied, has not yet subsided. The feeling, however, is that the discussion on what happened at Montmelò will continue for a long time. In fact, the French rider from Yamaha himself returned to the episode in a goliardic and provocative way. During a break from the MotoGP tests held today on the Catalan track, Quartararo was in fact photographed wearing shorts and shirtless on his M1.

The text of the tweet published by the leader of the world ranking is definitely indicative. “Good test today. 79 laps completed and luckily no one saw me drive “, Quartararo’s message, accompanied by a laughing face. Yesterday the Frenchman had already harshly attacked the jury’s decision to penalize him, also criticizing the request for intervention from Ducati. Many former pilots and experts instead expressed the opposite criticism, accusing the commissioners of having been too permissive. In fact, according to a strong current of thought, the Yamaha rider would have been deserving of the black flag. Certainly this tweet will not help to calm the spirits and calmly approach the next race.
