Johann Zarco, weakened by the flu, was at the GP Sachsenring after two rounds in 15th place, then he crashed. He is helpless with 16 points in the summer break.

Johann Zarco, the Red Bull KTM MotoGP professional driver, who had lost his flu, had high hopes for the race at the German World Championship but did not reach the finish line on Sunday at Sachsenring. The Frenchman scored more than 16 points in the first nine races of the 2019 season and dropped to 17th place.

While his Spanish Red Bull KTM teammate Pol Espargaró was 12th, Johann Zarco, a two-time Moto2 World Champion, was already in the starting phase of the MotoGP race at Sachsenring. "The start was pretty good," said Zarco, who returned to 18th after the first round. "The bike has slipped a lot, I had hoped that the cooler conditions could bring me a little more consistency in the race."

Zarco then said in a weak and irritated voice: "I tried, do not make a mistake, maybe it was just too much of a bend in turn 3. I do not know, but I've bent the front wheel.I think Oliveira did the same thing a lap earlier.It was probably the limit. "

In any case, the summer break will not be a jubilant: "Too bad.I was already in the points, what was the goal.I think I could have followed this pace throughout the race." what i am experiencing right now, a good or bad race before the summer holidays is not a big drama.I know exactly what i am going to do during the break and i have definitely the motivation to come to Brno further. "

Some runners complained that the track was extremely slippery after the rain. Zarco confirms: "At the beginning of the race, it was not possible to control the bike on the brakes, our situation after the half-time could have been better, but I did not go that far. no more catching the slip on the front wheel. "

Zarco admits, "I could think of a lot of things in the last seven months, but the summer break will be the moment to push myself to new heights and become stronger than the champion." Even though I can not drive faster, I want to become stronger as a person and control the situation much better. "
