“There is no more support from Ducati”: Johann Zarco discusses team support for winning the World Championship

“There is no more support from Ducati”: Johann Zarco discusses team support for winning the World Championship

MotoGP is a sport of tremendous competition, and if you are not the best of the best, then you will not be aided in any way. Johann Zarco has learnt this lesson recently, the hard way, because the racer has not yet received any help from his team, Ducati, even though he stands at the third spot in the Championship table. The racer has displayed excellent performance to become the third fastest in the world, after last year’s World Champion Fabio Quartararo and Aprilia’s Aleix Espargarò. But even now, Johann Zarco is wary about wishing for the Championship title as he knows he will not be pushed by Ducati for it.

Johann Zarco has been one of the most consistent racers in the 2022 season of MotoGP. Even though he has no race wins to his name, he is currently third in the MotoGP World Championship because of consistently coming in the top 10 at all the races that have happened till now. Being the best racer of the Ducati sphere, which has stalwarts like Enea Bastianini and Francesco Bagnaia, Johann Zarco’s third spot in the points table is a commendable job that Ducati should support.

But in the words of the French racer who recently got a P2 finish in the Deutschland Grand Prix, his Italian team will not help him win the Championship title.

While Ducati is all about promoting their most decorated rider–Francesco Bagnaia, it is a stark fact that another one of their riders–Johann Zarco, is ahead of Bagnaia by 30 whopping points in the points table for this year’s MotoGP.

While Johann was asked if his team will now push him to go for the Championship win, the Ducati rider said otherwise. He said, “There is no more support to have from Ducati because of my position. That’s one of the very good things about Ducati: when you start the season at Pramac you know that you have full support as a factory rider and that is very important.”

He also continued, “We all have a chance to be at the top of the championship, I’m the one who’s in third place at the moment because I’ve been consistent in the last four races, and the bike will always be performing at its best.”
