Zarco: “I will try to escape and try to ride smart”

Zarco: “I will try to escape and try to ride smart”

Moto2™ pole-man Johann Zarco outlines his tactics for Sunday’s race at the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya.

Zarco was soon up at the front in the qualifying session, maintaining the position whilst steadily lowering his times. It was on his second stint that the Ajo Motorsport rider clinched pole, setting a 1:45.895 lap that was a new fastest lap of the circuit.  He had set two consecutive pole-worthy times and was the only rider to go below the 1:46 mark.

Johann Zarco: "This pole position has been a great gift for the good work we have done so far. Since yesterday, from the first Free Practice sessions, we have set good fast laps and had a good pace on used tyres, so we're well prepared for tomorrow's race. The goal is to take victory. Starting from pole position is important, as it would have been to start from anywhere on the front row. This gives you more options to win the race. I don’t know what will happen tomorrow, but I will try to escape and try to ride smart. I’ll be fighting against the other riders to try to cross the finish line first."
