Zarco: “I felt more relaxed on the bike than before”

Zarco: “I felt more relaxed on the bike than before”

Johann Zarco found a set-up that allowed him to be smoother and more relaxed on the bike during Tuesday’s Moto2™ test in Barcelona.

Although he leads the Moto2™ World Championship after seven races, Zarco is not easing up and has kept up his demanding work schedule. With this in mind, the team tried to continue taking steps forward with the setup of his Kalex this Tuesday, working with different chassis configurations and focusing especially on the front end. Confident after his result on Sunday, the Ajo Motorsport rider drew positive conclusions from a day in which he put in a total of 70 laps -330 km. Furthermore, in the final stint of the day, the Frenchman successfully tested one of the two new Dunlop tyre compounds.

Johann Zarco: “I'm very happy with how this day of testing went at Barcelona, after the victory last Sunday. The rain broke up the day a little, but we have drawn some very positive conclusions. In addition, although we tested different setups, we were able to ride almost as fast as in the race and the truth is that I felt more relaxed on the bike than before. We were also able to try one of the new compounds brought here by Dunlop, and the feeling with that was very good right from the beginning -although we were unable to put in many laps. I am already looking forward to the next GP and making further progress in the Moto2 World Championship.”

#NoSunNoFun Heavy rain at the Catalunya post-GP test will prompt most teams to wrap-up early. Too bad for @lorisbaz!
