Johann Zarco: Freddie Spencer is not the right person to serve as FIM Chief Stewards

RiderTua.com – After Johann Zarco fell into the gravel on the last lap of Saturday’s sprint race, the LCR Honda rider also crashed in Sunday’s main race at Jerez. But this time it wasn’t his fault. On lap 10 Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia) tried to overtake Zarco at turn 5, but failed. When he fell, the Aprilia racer dragged Zarco until he fell.

Zarco said 2 or 3 laps before the fall, Aleix did a good overtaking maneuver between turns 4 and 5. However, on this lap there was something a little late. He tried to control the situation and avoid a collision, but he fell and took Zarco with him, said the French rider, describing the incident from his perspective.

Previously, Aleix Espargaro criticized Johann Zarco’s racing style. However, he firmly rejected these accusations. Because it was a good duel, even though Aleix didn’t agree with his opinion. zarco didn’t touch him and even though he was only fighting for 14th place, he pushed to the limit. That’s part of the job. “Currently Zarco feels he doesn’t have the mount to be at the forefront, but if he can fight for points then he will do it,” said the 33 year old rider.

Furthermore, Zarco explained that on the first lap he collided with Pedro Acosta at Turn 5, but everything was still under control. Franco Morbidelli tried the same thing with Jack Miller, but he failed to control the situation, causing a crash. Pecco Bagnaia did the same thing against Marc Marquez, it was a good maneuver.

However, Zarco felt much more horrified by the FIM stewards’ approach led by Freddie Spencer compared to the incident with Aleix Espargaro. After the race Zarco went to race management and Freddie asked him what he expected now. Actually they wanted me to protest against Espargaro. But I didn’t do that. Instead, Zarco told him he wasn’t cut out for the job. Because he often makes wrong decisions in various situations. He shouldn’t have asked me what I was going to do. “Because that’s his job,” stressed Zarco angrily.

Zarco continued to vent his anger. “We have to change something. We racers have to unite and no longer remain silent. We have to find capable decision makers. The incident with Aleix was really unfortunate. But everything went wrong after that. Freddie Spencer is not the right person for this job,” concluded his colleague Taka Nakagami‘s team.
