#StatAttack: Can Zarco continue his form?

Johann Zarco heads to the Austrian GP with a 25-point lead in the Moto2™ World Championship after scoring 95 points in the last 4 races.

  • After crashing at the French Grand Prix and falling 31 points behind the championship leader, Johann Zarco has picked up 95 points in four races, with three wins and a second place finish, to lead the championship classification by 25 points.

  • Alex Rins crashed out of the German Grand Prix on the 27th lap – the first time he has failed to finish a race since the Malaysian GP last year.

  • Sam Lowes failed to finish in Germany after crashing then re-starting and crashing for a second time; this was the first time that he has failed to score points since the San Marino GP last year.

  • After missing the German Grand Prix due to injury, reigning Moto3 World Champion Danny Kent is now scheduled to make his 100th grand prix start at the Austrian Grand Prix.

  • Julian Simon’s third place finish at the German Grand Prix was his first podium for almost four years, since he was 2nd at the final race of 2012 at Valencia.
