In MotoGP, Zarco does not close the door on another manufacturer … – Le Mag Sport Auto

In MotoGP, Johann Zarco is the rider – in activity – to have driven the most different machines in a short period of time. Suzuki, Yamaha, KTM, Honda, Ducati, in less than three years, the performance is remarkable…Well, the tricolor may not stop there, if we rely on recent comments, held at the microphone of our colleagues from Canal +.

MotoGP: Zarco thinks he has time to convince Ducati

It was in the context of a question asked about his future with Ducati, and the need for Johann to prove himself, that the tricolor mentioned this situation, in which he will have to perform well quickly, in order to envisage a more competitive structure. While answering another question, related to the delay in launching the MotoGP championship: “ I haven't yet figured out that delaying the start of the season or having less time to prove myself can be complicated for me in 2021. I have every confidence in Ducati. I am already happy to have met them and to have fun on the bike, and I see that deep inside me is still burning so much this desire to be able to win that I trust that it can bring good things. "

Zarco goes on to say that, according to him, on the Ducati side, we are not going to put pressure on him immediately: "The balance is good, mentally and physically, so I tell myself that Ducati can give me time, they will not rush anything. Currently I am not discussing 2021 with anyone at all. The ideal would be with Ducati, if I can perform well with them, we should not close the doors to other possibilities either. But now is not the time, we are more in a survival situation than negotiating a contract. "

If the tricolor therefore does not want – logically – to evoke a future "elsewhere" at this stage of the year, it does not rule out other tracks either. No doubt a way of saying that, in the event that Ducati does not make it evolve towards the official team, it will not refuse another offer. Knowing that the official Yamaha track is blocked. Also, with these few words, the Avintia driver probably sends a message to Ducati. A good way to demonstrate your determination to win. Which is quite positive…
