MotoGP VIDEO Johann Zarco: “something is missing because I haven’t won yet”

Between our two French champions who shine in MotoGP, Fabio Quartararo and Johann Zarco, there is a difference of about ten years, and that already marks a border between two generations. Everyone legitimately sees things in their own way, which means that no one approach should take precedence over the other. Thus, while the MotoGP World Champion raised the notoriety of his discipline behind the scenes of the elegant Formula 1 in Castelet, his compatriot, twice titled in Moto2, immersed himself in the purest environment of motorcycling with the lovers of the Ducati brand at Misano WDW. He even risked running in it under a blazing sun. But he has yet to win on a Ducati…

John Zarco he was almost a ducatist among ducatists in this WDW in Misano where there was a lot of talk about the Italian pilots. But this relative anonymity and this proximity to motorcyclists suit the Frenchman well. He even goes back to it. In GPOne, he gave his opinion on this great meeting of the brand that represents, anyway, currently occupies the third position in the MotoGP riders’ championship, behind a April and one Yamaha. Therefore, theoretically it is he who is the best chance of the Borgo Panigale crest in the conquest of a second title expected since 2007…

He says thus: It’s special. I did the parade starting from the circuit, going through Riccione, Misano, Cattolica and it was magnificent. Before, I walked around the paddock and started seeing all the Ducatis, and the old ones make you understand even more the passion of the people who come here. Then the parade was even better, you can really see the passion “.

John Zarco: Ducati is not just any brand, it doesn’t make ordinary motorcycles

John Zarco add: ” it’s not just any brand, it doesn’t make ordinary motorcycles. He makes unique motorcycles for everyone and there are many fans here who managed to create something beautiful. I was happy to be at WDW for the first time. They said you had to live to understand it and after the parade I can say I understand it “.

So refreshed and still a bit more of a Ducatister at heart, will that good stored energy give him that last but all-important boost that will turn him into a MotoGP Grand Prix winner with a Desmosedici? Because there is this lack, this void, which the tricolor easily recognizes: ” something is missing because I haven’t won yet i this will be an important stepI still have to figure out how to get the most out of Ducati. Seeing that I’m third in the championship before the break gives me a lot of motivation, but I still don’t feel like I’ve done my best on this bike.. But I’m in a good position and that’s positive. I hope to be stronger in the second half of the championship “.

A final part of the campaign which will start at Silverstone from the British Grand Prix free practice on August 5. Ducati however, it will not take into account John Zarco as a priority, despite its position as the brand leader in the general classification. The idea will be rather to get the driver back as soon as possible in red Pecco Bagnaia and decide between Bastianini i Martin for the place that Jack Miller had to release A win would certainly bring John Zarco in order of priority from his employer, who still has to get him to sign that contract with Pramac for 2023, which he swears is just a formality…
