Marquez: Yamaha lost a really good rider

We didn't need Marc to tell us this information. But the world champ pretty much says the folks in charge "jarvis & Meregalli" are idiots! But Herve had already mention that...........

Quote:
Asked what he can see Zarco doing differently compared to Vinales and Rossi, Marquez replied:

"Of course there are different riding styles between them. Maybe the most similar is Johann and Valentino. Maverick has another riding style. But it's not worse or better. I mean it's different and sometimes it's better, sometimes it's worse.

"But it's strange [that Zarco is the fastest] and I can't answer this because even they cannot answer and they have all the data. They have everything."

But as a 'neutral observer'…

"From a neutral observer, Yamaha lost a really good rider - I mean, he's going to KTM!" Marquez responded. "At the moment he's the fastest one.

"Of course the experience of Valentino is really good and Vinales has the speed. But at the moment Zarco is doing a great job."

is it possible that Zarco and tech 3 have figured something out with their M1, that the factory team has not? Zarco seems to ride the M1 in a more off the "rails" fashion, where as the factory boys seem to have their bikes set up tight.

I have read somewhere that he reportedly uses a lot softer suspension setup, this of course allows the bike to pitch more under braking and acceleration. The advantage of this is it increases weight transfer to the front and then the rear, the downside is that more weight transfer in theory loads the tyre more. So if he is running a softer setup, I think a lot of the difference is his smoother riding that allows him to make use of the extra weight transfer without loading the tyres too much.

I think the 2019 should have been Lorenzo/Zarco on that Yamaha while 2018 Lorenzo/somebody. I think that Yamaha (for that specific bike) lost two very good drivers in a span of two years.

I have stated that I think Maverick is over-rated. However, he obviously can win races against the other fast kids, so you are right, there is a mess at Yamaha Moviestar. It is so obvious that Zarco is faster than the other boys. However, he does rely on softer tires too much, which makes him suspect as a consistent podium winner. I wonder what Iannone could do on a Yamaha. That would be a Yamaha team, Iannone and Zarco.

1 1/2 kamikazee's in one team? As a racing fan I totally like the idea and I would expect a lot of sparks on track and some precious points lost due to team internal fights ending on the tarmac (see Ducati Dov/Ion). As a team I think one would fair better with the Lorenzo/Zarco or Zarco/Pedrosa type of line up.

Zarco’s agent stated that Rossi blocked Zarco at Yamaha at every corner.
