Quartararo is brimming with confidence after winning the Catalan Grand Prix and he reflected on the race. 
"It was the best moment of my life, honestly. Better than both Jerez [wins], because when you arrive at a good moment and you win," Quartararo said.
"You expect it and you know that you're going to do it well. But then you have five races in a row and you are doing not so great, to arrive the victory, not just the podium, 
"But the victory directly is amazing. A lot of emotions, thinking of my family who was watching me. I talked to my brother just before the start, because I went back to my office and he sent me a message," he added. 
"I was in full confidence, I was feeling great and honestly it's great to be back in front."
Yamaha are sitting at the top of the Manufacturers' Championship standings with 163 points. 
Ducati and Suzuki are placed second and third with 126 and 113 points respectively on the standings.
