Johann Zarco: of Course It’s Frustrating but We Have to Be Patient

RiderTua.com – At COTA Austin, Johann Zarco was disappointed after failing to finish twice. The American GP was just a continuation of his less successful debut at the LCR Honda team. His best result was finishing 12th at the Qatar GP (main race). Currently the 33 year old rider is in 18th place after the first 3 series with only scoring 5 points.

Other Honda riders, namely Luca Marini, Joan Mir and Takaaki Nakagami, are not much different from him, the RC213V is still far from competitive. Even so, Zarco remains optimistic. “Of course we are frustrated because of our limitations. But we have to be patient. That’s the current situation, but I can handle it. I can only convey my comments, then it’s up to the engineers. I’m not an engineer and I can’t tell them what to do done,” said the French rider.

Johann Zarco – LCR Honda

Zarco added that they had difficulty fighting a bike that already has a very good base and is being developed further from now on. They are still looking for the basis of this. That’s why sometimes Honda has big problems and is far behind, but he really believes in Japan.

Teammate Takaaki Nakagami finished his final season with the Pramac Ducati team in 5th place in the 2023 standings, where he won his first MotoGP race at Phillip Island-Australia. After 4 years at Ducati (3 years at Pramac and 1 year at Avintia) he moved to LCR Honda in 2024 with uncompetitive material.

In the middle of the 2023 season, Ducati only offered him a 1 year contract but Honda instead tempted him with a 2 year contract. With Honda’s new MotoGP project, Zarco can look further into the future. This can also help Johann develop as a rider. That’s why this option is very attractive to him,” said Zarco about his agreement with the giant Japanese bike manufacturer.

During the winter break, Johann Zarco grew as a rider thanks to the way he trained. That’s good because it means he can perform even better on the bike with his new team. He wanted to get rid of the constant pressure to achieve good results. “He feels he is putting enough pressure on himself to show good results,” concluded Zarco.

Zarco’s next opportunity is to appear at Jerez (26-28 April). However, according to the data, last year the race did not go well for him there. He only managed 8th in the sprint and crashed in the main race, thus scoring only 2 points. And in this race at the Spanish GP, it is very likely that he will not be able to be involved in the duel for the front position in both races.
