Zarco aiming to “keep the momentum going”

French rookie aiming high in Argentina after impressing in Qatar

Johann Zarco (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) had a stunning opening to his premier class career, taking the lead early on in Qatar and setting the fastest lap of the race. Crashing out a little later, the French rookie nevertheless made a huge impact in his first race – and now looks to do it again, and convert pace into a result.

What do Viñales, Dovi and Rossi think about Zarco?

The reigning Moto2™ Champion has two wins at Termas de Rio Hondo under his belt, in 2015 and 2016, and enjoys the Argentine track – excited to see what he can achieve second time out.

Johann Zarco: "It will be my second MotoGP race this weekend when we go to Argentina and I’m excited to see what we can achieve. I like the venue, it’s quite new, and this year will be the fourth year that we will race there. I have had some strong results there in the past, with two victories and setting the fastest lap and pole position time at the track in the Moto2 class. The circuit itself is interesting, fast and quite simple, which is why I enjoy riding on it. After the good start in Qatar, I would like to keep the pace and the momentum going and I hope to use the upcoming opportunity in Argentina to score a great result and collect a lot of points. This is certainly possible for us, so lets see what happens but I am motivated and looking forward to racing in Argentina."
