What Zarco’s ri­vals say…

Mav­er­ick Viñales When Zarco qual­i­fied along­side him on the front row at Le Mans

“He is al­ways fight­ing into the first corner on the brakes for sure, try­ing to be first. I think he is do­ing a re­ally good job. He has been quite im­pres­sive for the first four or five races, so he is do­ing a good job and he has to con­tinue like that: but maybe he needs to calm down be­cause we all want a podium!”

Valentino Rossi Af­ter his sec­ond close en­counter with Zarco at the Dutch TT

“I’ve started to think that he is not a bad guy, it’s just that he doesn’t un­der­stand the gaps be­tween one bike and the other be­cause just like in Austin, he tried some­thing im­pos­si­ble. He is ag­gres­sive, which is OK un­til some­thing goes wrong – but this is Mo­togp and ev­ery­body has to be ag­gres­sive.”

Cal Crutchlow Af­ter his own run-in with Zarco at Austin

“He’s strong in the first lap, but it could eas­ily bite him in the arse and he could end crash­ing. The only thing is, if it does bite him in the arse, who cares? It’s his first year, he doesn’t re­ally care. But for some­one like me, Valentino or Marc– if he takes us out of the race we’ll be more pissed than he is not to fin­ish.”
