Zarco doesn’t do logical, and MotoGP is better for it. Lead on your first lap in MotoGP in Qatar 2017 before crashing out? Sure. Leave not even halfway through a two-year factory deal with KTM, as Zarco did in 2019, with no place to go? Why not. Put a year-old Ducati on pole at Brno in 2020 and finish on the podium? Go on then. Anyone who says they know what Zarco will do next can't be believed; what can be believed is that it'll be entertaining.
Standout moments in Australia are fleeting, but Zarco's part in a massive brawl for the 2017 podium with Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales shows how relentlessly rapid he can be at the Island when he's on song.
