Quartararo was pleased with his performance at the Emilia Romagna and Rimini's Coast Grand Prix as he managed to close the gap on Dovizioso.
"For me, it was a good race. The goal was to finish on the podium and for me, it's like a third place," Quartararo said. 
"Okay we don't have the 16 points but I'm feeling happy because I fought until the end to make the podium. Just really disappointed not to be up there. 
"I was feeling good on the bike, but not great. It was really difficult for me to overtake."
Yamaha are sitting at the top of Manufacturers' Championship standings with 138 points. 
Ducati and KTM are placed second and third with 115 and 104 points respectively on the standings.
