Quartararo made an extreme maneuver on the new chicane (turn 2a-2b) of the Red Bull Ring Circuit to overtake Ducati’s Jack Miller, who was in second place at the time.
Fabio Quartararo managed to overtake Miller from the outside of Turn 2a, to then bend his bike back to the deepest side of Turn 2B. The French racer also gained momentum and was able to avoid the pursuit of Jack Miller and Jorge Martin.
Responding to Quartararo’s action overtaking him, Miller was quite surprised by Quartararo’s sudden maneuver. As he watched the rerun of the action, Miller felt himself very slow when overtaken, much like an old man who lost his speed.
“I was surprised how quickly he (Quartararo) passed me there,” Miller said Crash, Tuesday (23/8/2022). “Watching the show again, I felt like I was going at the speed of a granny,” Miller continued.
Miller continued to add, he did not want to serve the action. Because at that time Quartararo was in high confidence and on the other hand Miller admitted he was suffering a lot on the left side.
“I didn’t want to put (the bike with) the angle too fast, because every time I did it I would lose (the grip on) the front,” he said again.
“He (Quartararo) really attacked and was able to finish it. That was impressive.”
