Zarco: “I will try to be calm”

Zarco: “I will try to be calm”

After an incredible season, Johann Zarco has his first chance to take the Moto2™ title at the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon.

After taking the lead of the Moto2™ World Championship in Argentina, Zarco has been almost untouchable. The Ajo Motorsport rider has pushed for the win when able and settled for solid podiums and ensure strong points, avoiding all unneeded risks. His approach for the Aragon GP will remain the same and the Frenchman is doing his best to push title thoughts to the back of his mind, simply focusing on achieving the best result possible. A key to his 2015 success has been the high standard his Ajo Motorsport team has worked too, almost always able to find the perfect setting for his Kalex.

Twice Zarco has stood on the Aragon podium, once in 2011 in the 125cc class and again in 2014 when riding the Caterham Suter in Moto2™. A podium repeat would go a long way in helping Zarco to secure the title, he must score seven more points than Tito Rabat (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) to leave Aragon as the Moto2™ World Champion. At this stage it looks almost inevitable that Zarco will be crowned champion in 2015, though no doubt Rabat will do his best to prevent it.

Johann Zarco: “I go to Aragon without thinking about the possibility of the title, because although this is the goal for the year, I have a big advantage and it is important to win it, not where I do it. If I see that I have a chance and I'm strong, I'll go for the win. I will try to be calm if I'm not the strongest, but I am convinced that the team will prepare the best bike possible for me. It's a track where I managed to get on the podium last year, and I've had other good races there, so I have good memories of Aragon. It is a circuit I like; fairly new, fast, with very interesting corners and where it can be quite windy. I will try to be calm, fight for the victory if possible and, if not, pick up points for the championship.”
