Or it could be as simple as no more updates from Yamaha, so where would he be going without constant updates? Once the KTM deal was announced with Tech 3, that was the end for Tech 3's Yamaha's. The factory bikes are running well and have gotten progressively better as the season has gone along even if they aren't running perfectly. Would be interesting to see how the points table looked if Marquez wasn't involved. Yamaha 1-2. They can't beat Marquez, that's the factory's main problem. Electronics may get them closer but MM is in form so that's going to be difficult to overcome. Zarco was hung out to dry and will have to hope KTM has a competitive package which I think is doubtful.

No doubt that’s part of it, we have seen It to many times to discount. According to Hervé though, his entire mentality has changed

Tech 3 never got upgrades during the year, other than for Spies. I think Zarco got an even better starting package this year than last, IIRC (e.g. rev hike, input in testing, etc.).

He is getting beaten by Syahrin in a few sessions. I reckon there's something up, and Herve's words seem to suggest so.

Hope to see him back at the top ASAP.

Zarco could just be one of those riders that now his future is secure and he knows he is on the move, his attitude and commitment are just no longer there. I thought he was better than that but maybe not.
Hopefully once he is onto factory machinery he is reinvigorated and back to his best. I haven't given up on him just yet.
Keshav and RCV600RR like this.

Remember he did speak out against the great one earlier this year. I'd be willing to bet there's more going on than what Herve is saying.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I recall that Zarco actually publicly denied that Rossi had opposed his tenure with Yamaha.

Didn’t you know? Ever since that Rossi is remotely applying the brakes on Zarco’s bike every time they race!
