Zarco: “Despite the crash, I am satisfied after day one”

Zarco: “Despite the crash, I am satisfied after day one”

Johann Zarco finishes 8th after the first day of final Moto2™ preseason test at Jerez in wet and windy conditions.

Johann Zarco undertook just two hours of testing on day 1, after suffering a crash at turn 8 with the Frenchman electing against participating in the final session, preferring to rest up ahead of the second day of testing. With rain affecting track conditions throughout the day, the Frenchman managed a best time of 1:57.374 that was the best of the 2nd session, more than a second ahead of his nearest rival, and good enough for 8th overall.

Johann Zarco:
"Today I unfortunately suffered a small crash in the second session, but these things can happen. It was raining a lot and I wanted to stay out on track. Despite this I am OK and tomorrow we will be able to continue the work we began today. We have still to test one fork in our search for the best setup for the bike in these conditions. Despite the crash, I am satisfied with this first day in the wet and ready for the next two. The colours for this season are really nice. The bike is looking very good. I want to thank the team for all their hard work and for making sure that the bike not only looks nice, but also rides very well."
