When

Marc Márquez

crashed into the asphalt of Jerez more than a year ago, the MotoGP World Championship went into depression. For months, despite the fact that the races defeated the pandemic, no one shone, or even stood out, and a season without epic was closed. When is Marc coming back? Was the question and the answer has not yet come. This 2021 the championship needed a new hero, someone who would generate fans, and among the covers of 'L'Equipe' he already has it:

Fabio Quartararo

. [Narration and statistics]

The 22-year-old Frenchman still does not have the media influence of the Fantastic Five (

Rossi, Stoner, Lorenzo, Pedrosa

and Márquez) and he may never have it, but it is already clear that he is the benchmark.

After his victory this Sunday in Assen, the title is in his hands;

now you can only lose it.

By form and by substance there is no one at his level in the World Cup.

On the Dutch circuit he did what he wanted, despite the fact that once again I had to deal with the top speed of the Ducati, the only argument against him throughout the year.

Shortly after the start,

Francesco Bagnaia

took the lead and Quartararo needed five laps to pass him.

Each overtaking of the French was answered by an acceleration of the Italian and so on until the final demarraje.

When he arrived, he no longer looked back.

In two laps he opened a chasm behind him until he celebrated under the checkered flag.

His fourth win of the season confirmed his course and exaggerated his lead advantage: he currently has 34 points over his compatriot

Johann Zarco

, 47 over Bagnaia and 55 over

Joan Mir

, the fourth and first Spaniard.
