Current Moto2™ World Championship leader Johann Zarco heads to Barcelona looking for his sixth consecutive podium finish.
Zarco, World Championship leader with 109 points, comes into the Catalan round motivated and eager to fight for victory after a spectacular start to the season. Last year he was third in the race –his best finish in Catalonia– and this year he wants to do even better onboard his Kalex. The Frenchman will try to take as many points as possible to continue fighting for the title and increase his points advantage.
Johann Zarco: “The Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit is a good circuit that also has some fast corners, like Mugello, so we will have our adrenalin through the roof. Last year I got onto the podium and was very happy, so this season I want to fight for victory. I think we have everything in our power to do it. I'll be focused on this as I aim to have good practice sessions and be consistent from the start of the weekend. It will, more than ever, be the key to this round. Tyres will also play an important role, because at this track it is usually hard compounds that are used. Studying them in detail will be decisive. Although we have an advantage in the championship, it is too early to speculate. We should enjoy the moment and take advantage of our positive momentum.”
