Monster Energy Yamaha's Fabio Quartararo will be looking to win the Italian Grand Prix for the second year in a row on Sunday, May 29.
The Frenchman claimed his third victory of the 2021 season at the Mugello Circuit on his way to being crowned World Champion for the first time.

Quartararo leads the riders' standings by four points ahead of Aprilia Racing's Aleix Espargaro (98) after six rounds and has finished on the podium in three races.
The 23-year-old's best result was victory in the Portuguese Grand Prix, while he could only secure P4 in the French Grand Prix on home soil last time out.

Quartararo revealed he wasn't able to overtake other riders at Le Mans due to a lack of straight-line performance as he spent much of the race behind Espargaro.
"I don't feel happy about my race at all. I had three crashes in front of me, so my real position is not 4th, it's much further back," he said.
"And not for our pace, because if you check every practice we had the best pace. But then in a race, as soon as you are in a position that you are not able to overtake or to have a clean track. It's finished.
"And this is why I was not even angry because, you know, I get a little bit used to this already. What is true is I give always 100%. I gave everything today. In one moment, I lost the front and Aleix took a half a second gap, but in five corners I was already back behind him again.
"So in term of speed we were super fast, but we know that it is not possible to overtake. All race we are not able to make one overtake. All the passes I make are because some riders made mistakes. Three crashes in front of me, Marc [Marquez] went a little bit wide, but I made no overtakes during the race."
