Grand Prix of France: Preview
“We must dream about big things.”
That was Johann Zarco’s response when asked if he could mount a serious title charge this year, following his podium finish at the Spanish Grand Prix.
The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider sits second in the standings, 12 points behind early leader Marc Marquez and eight clear of Maverick Vinales on the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP.
The former Moto2 world champion has scored points in all but one of his races in the premier class and that consistency could prove vital if he is to be challenging come the business end of the season.
He will also need to make the most of any opportunity to reign in Marquez, who at times in the opening four rounds has shown pace the other riders cannot live with.
Yamaha’s traditionally go well at Le Mans, Vinales edged out team-mate Valentino Rossi in an epic battle here last year, with Zarco finishing as runner-up on that day.
“I got my first podium there last year and it’s a track that the Yamaha goes well on,” Zarco told BT Sport.
“So if I take things easily and do the right things at the right moment, then if I have this advantage I would be clever to use it.”
After tough starts, Rossi and Vinales are in need of the championship points to get back in the reckoning and will undoubtedly push Zarco all the way in his home GP.
Add to that Dani Pedrosa and Ducati team-mates Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo who are still reeling from their Jerez collision and we could have some race at the top end.
And that’s not to mention the small matter of Marc Marquez. We could be set for quite the battle.
