Much has been talked about Johann Zarco since he left KTM and Yamaha approached him was another news. But Zarco joins LCR Honda to take place of Taka Nagakami who is injured and set to go under the knife. Zarco will ride the final three races with LCR Honda.
Zarco looked more confident as he was riding on Phillip Island and was aggressive on the track. Under stress, Zarco was pushing himself in the last MotoGP race at San Marino before Honda’s boss talking to him and saying ‘Relax an Enjoy’ the race for the Phillip Island.
With weather conditions not being good and the qualifying races getting delayed Zarco stood fourth fastest in Q1.
He gave a tough fight to Pol Esparagaro his former team-mate.
Johann Zarco Quote.
“The race was great. I chose the soft rear because that was the only tire I used all weekend and it would have been a shame to have no feeling during the race. At the start I had a good fight with many riders, overtaking them and them overtaking me, and then it was quite funny that the rider I was battling with for most of the race was KTM’s Pol Espargaro.
We had a good fight, every time I thought I could get past him and move on to the group ahead, he attacked me again and we lost some time. I tried to beat him, but he did a good last lap and came out of the last corner better than me. I finished 13th which is ok, it was good to come back and it’s always a tough race here at Phillip Island.”
Johann Zarco’s Last 5 positions in the MotoGP
- At Czech GP Zarco stood 14th.
- At Austrian GP Zarco stood 12th.
- At British GP he went down in the table to stand at 20th position.
- In the San Marino GP, we saw him in the 11th position.
- At Australian GP he stood 13th position.
On an average he is on 14th position. We dont see why Zarco cant come inside the 10th position in future MotoGP’s.
