Erstwhile MotoGP championship leader Fabio Quartararo admits he is worried about the Suzuki threat in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Misano as he thinks the GSX-RR is "perfect".

Joan Mir put on a late charge for the podium in last weekend's San Marino GP at the same circuit, overhauling Yamaha's Valentino Rossi on the last lap to claim third, while Alex Rins was close to the rostrum in fifth.

FP1 pacesetter Fabio Quartararo guided his Petronas SRT M1 to a 1m32.672s to demote Rossi, though this was soon usurped by Miguel Oliveira on the Tech3 KTM.

This followed on from a second-place finish in the Austrian GP, while Mir was on course for victory in the Styria race before it was red-flagged - the Spaniard ultimately ending up fourth as a result of a lack of a fresh front tyre for the restart.

Suzuki impressed at Red Bull Ring, with its traction off corners preventing it from being swallowed up on the straights by Ducatis and Hondas.

With the second Misano round expected to be much tighter than last weekend, where Yamaha-mounded Franco Morbidelli scored his first MotoGP win for Petronas SRT, his team-mate Quartararo expressed concerns about the threat Suzuki poses to Yamaha.

"I'm worried because they are fast in the straight, they are fast in acceleration to overtake people, they are so fast," Quartararo said.

"Overall from the chassis, engine power, I think is really great, handling [also]."

Mir brushed off Quartararo's assessment, noting that Yamaha "is getting pole positions, and the winner of the last race was one Yamaha".

"I didn't know [if] Fabio rode my bike," the Suzuki rider joked.

"It's really nice to hear someone that knows my bike better than me.

"What can I say, of course the bike of the other people is better than the one you are using for sure.

"At the moment, the one that is getting pole positions is him and the winner of the last race was one Yamaha.

"So, I don't know if I have to answer that question.

"Yes, for sure, I feel great and for sure we have a great package.
