“You can go from hero to zero in no time”, said Johann Zarco at Silverstone. The French rider, who started on pole and was the leader of the British Moto GP Grand Prix when he fell on the 5th lap, illustrated this adage at his expense this Sunday. The 32-year-old pilot was “surprised in turn 8”and could not avoid a passage on the ground. An accident that put an end to any hope of first success in the premier category.
A deliverance he has now been waiting for for 96 Grands Prix, including eight started from pole. “Bad luck for me todayhe regretted. The high temperatures pushed me to take the medium tire at the front, it was a good tire since Pecco (Bagnaia) won with it, but it seems that for me it was the reason for my crash, we have less grip with it. »

Despite this bad operation, which takes him from 3rd to 5th place in the Championship, the Habs do not want to change their approach. “You can disassemble and stop, but I’m not going to disassemble or stop either”. On the contrary. “I missed this opportunity but I can’t stay on it, I can’t wait to be in Austria”August 21 for the next round.
