Yes, being far enough ahead of the KTMs to be taken out by another bike and rider who was ahead of them definitely proves what a hacker he is.

You've got to finish before you can call it a success. He's went well in one practice session so far other than that, mediocre at best.

Don't be absurd. He was taken out by another rider.

So you think trundling round in 15th, rather than demonstrating top 10 pace for most of a race on a notoriously difficult bike then being taken out by another rider who was also comfortably faster than the KTMs through no fault of his own, would have served his interests better/impressed prospective future employers such as Honda more ?.

Isn't Zarko riding the 2018 spec Honda, i.e., a much more rider friendly bike than this years?

Still poor results for anyone not named Marc Marquez and not particularly friendly; to make it more so was part of the declared rationale for hiring Jorge.

On the Sepang edition of after the flag. Crafar seems to hint Zarco may be getting more at Honda than just the 3 rides. Cue to 17:30 of the video

Thanks for the link! BTW, this crash was a little mystery for me, now it is explained. Penalty for Mir was odd.

The contact with Rins and Miller was more questionable in my mind. The Mir/Zarco incident was unfortunate since they were both headed for the same piece of track where the gap was opening up.

It would be epic to see Zarco get a second chance.
