Johann Zarco on Ducati's chances: It will not be very funny for the other riders

Johann Zarco spoke about Ducati's chances for the upcoming season. Zarco is an optimist, but he is aware that others also have good chances. "I’m sure! It will not be very funny for the other riders. Overall, the official team, Pramac and VR46, but now we can see Di Giannantonio and Alex Marquez are having a better adaptation than what we could have expected.

I’m the last Ducati now but seven Ducatis in the top nine. Even the Gresini team is there and that will be tough for the others. This is good for us but in another track I think Fabio [Quartararo] and Marc [Marquez] are there."- Zarco said, as quoted by crash.net Zarco also commented on his performance on day three.

He is happy about the progress they are making. "Good day. I really enjoyed it and we were able to work like the first day and do the small things that can bring a lot. I think a good step forward has been done and I’m pretty happy for it.

If we just check the classification - with the rain it didn’t give the opportunity to put the new tyre. We could have put it before but that was not the target. I wanted to feel the bike and bring the bike where I want.

This is coming. This was the target of the test. We keep trying things for Ducati also, which is always a pleasure to do because my feeling is very sensitive and information is very useful even if sometimes you cannot feel too much of a difference.

"

Portimao

Portimao and the real picture of everything are expected. "At least you keep working and the 2023 version is very finalised. For the few stuff we tried the fairings are very interesting. I think in Portimao we will have a very good bike to keep pushing.

Other Ducati riders are very competitive already." He couldn't help but mention the advantages and disadvantages of what he has at his disposal. "I would say it’s more about the aerodynamic stuff to improve a bit of everything always.

The handling and the braking. What is good to have is a better feeling entering the corner and a better stability. It’s normally two things that are not going together."
