He can you not like Zarco? Fast, super aggressive and he normally gives insightful answers in press conferences and interviews.

Good looking, too. And he speaks French. Wait ...... I think I am straight.

I have been a fan for a couple of years. Him beating Vinales and Rossi is just tits:
First it's with the '16, now with the '17. OMG, I can hardly wait till he beats them on the '18, too. I never believed the Vinales story. And Rossi eating crow, is well, just sweet sometimes. (No offense to you NICE Rossi fans.)

Crutchlow and Miller are the only ones who can make an impression with satellite machinery, and their stuff is the same year as the Repsol. The talent coming out of Moto2 is more suited for MotoGP than the 250s, imo. While we still have good racers, like JLo, Pedobot, and Rostifarian from the old school, those 600s with the same engines, really put the onus on the riders to outperform the average bear. Marquez and Zarco are excellent examples of the future of MotoGP.

I reckon you should have a rethink about the straight bit.....

"After the second and final day of official MotoGP testing at Valencia...

...Johann Zarco (+0.406) continues to amaze. Despite a crash and having closed 0.003 behind Pedrosa, the Frenchman already seems to be as one with the 2017 M1, even able to put Maverick Vinales (5th, +0.607) and Valentino Rossi (7th +0.691) behind him."

Johann:
"...once we've found the right set-up to be able to exploit its potential, I think this can be a winning bike”.

Too bad that he joined MGP relatively late. Hopefully he'll shown some signs of durability, he's a very exciting rider

Maybe we get too caught up in age, maybe the factories do as well. Doohan started in the 500s late was dominant into his 30s. There's no reason to believe Zarco can't continue strong form to the same age I feel he has the equipment and from what I understand there is no biological reason why other riders can't do as well.

Not to mention the 38 year old who is faster than 80% of the grid and still continues to get podiums and the occasional win.
