How Zarco can lift the title at Motegi

How Zarco can lift the title at Motegi

All of the ways Ajo Motorsport’s Johann Zarco can lift the Moto2™ World Championship title at the Motul Grand Prix of Japan.

Although at Aragon Johann Zarco finished off the podium for the first time since the opening race of the year, he arrives at Motegi with a great chance of clinching the title. Zarco now leads Tito Rabat, the only rider who can now deny him the title, by 78 points. To win the title in Motegi he needs to have a 75-point lead in the championship on completion of the race and the following scenarios will result in Zarco taking the world championship in Motegi:

  • If Zarco wins the race

  • If Zarco is 2nd or 3rd and finishes in front of Rabat

  • If Zarco is 4th and Rabat does not finish first or second

  • If Zarco is 5th or 6th and Rabat does not finish on the podium

  • If Zarco is 7th or 8th and Rabat finishes no higher than 5th

  • If Zarco is 9th to 15th and Rabat finishes no more than three places ahead of him

  • If Zarco fails to score he will still win the title if Rabat finishes no higher than 13th.
