The 22-year-old dedicated his win at the Italian MotoGP to Swiss rider Jason Dupasquier, who died after a crash in Moto3 qualifying at the Mugello Circuit on May 29. 
 
“Strange day, honestly a lot of emotion before the race. It's not a great feeling, you achieve a win but we lose one of our friends,” said Quartararo.
 
“To start the race after that one minute of silence was really difficult. Every time at turn nine I was thinking of Jason, and this win was for him.”
Yamaha are placed at the top of Constructors' Championship standings and they are followed by Ducati and Suzuki respectively.
