MotoGP: Zarco aims to fight with 'top guys' at Silverstone
MONSTER Yamaha Tech 3's Johann Zarco is aiming to fight at the front with the 'top guys' at the next MotoGP round in Silverstone.
Zarco took yet another top five finish in Austria and top Yamaha as he continues to rack up the points to take Rookie of the Year. Despite Zarco's disaster last year at Silverstone, where he took out home favourite Sam Lowes, previously the British circuit has been suited the Frenchman's style.
'Silverstone is a very fast track and I am happy to go there after the solid and rewarding weekend that we had in Austria,' explained the Yamaha rider.
'I have a high level of motivation again so my target is to fight with the top guys and to collect as many points as possible for the championship. In the past, I have been competitive at Silverstone in Moto2, so I hope I will feel good on my Yamaha MotoGP bike.'
Tyre management will be key at Silverstone for Zarco in order to achieve a strong race and a top five finish, but he appears to be the man for the job with his confidence and determination to run with the most experienced racers.
