Twenty years of scarcity. Since the transition to MotoGP, a Frenchman has never climbed to the top step of the podium at home. Fabio Quartararo, fourth on the grid and Johann Zarco, ninth after being penalized three places, are trying, on Sunday May 15, on the Bugatti circuit of Le Mans, to put an end to this bad series. Last year, they both finished on the podium but were overtaken by Jack Miller.

The Australian, second in qualifying behind Pecco Bagnaia, could once again play a bad trick on the French. But their main rival will be the Italian poleman, already winner last week in Jerez in Spain. After a failed start to the season, the Transalpine seems to have found the solution on his machine and is one of the contenders for the title of world champion. For now, Fabio Quartararo is leading the dance ahead of Aleix Espargaro.
