“The Spirit of KTM”: Zarco and Espargaró want to win

Following the first podium by Pol Espargaró at 2018’s season finale in Valencia and the first tests for the 2019 season in Sepang, the Austrian works team is optimistic. The riders said:

Pol Espargaró (ESP): “We might still have to improve a little bit more to win our first race. But I can promise you: If there is even the slightest chance for a win, we will give 1000 percent and go for it! Johann is very good for our team. He has this special sparkle in his eyes. He wants to win more than anything else – just like me!”

Johann Zarco (FRA): “We have made great progress at Sepang. I have started to understand the RC16 and become faster. Nonetheless, we still have a lot of work to do to catch up to the top teams. No matter how hard we have to fight and how much work lays ahead of us – KTM will not be intimidated. The team is ready to solve any problem. If necessary, it will put in 24 hours a day. That’s the ‘Spirit of KTM’.”

Besides the marque’s two MotoGP riders, Miguel Oliveira (POR) and Hafizh Syahrin (MAS) from the new KTM Tech 3 Racing Team will pin it for red, white and orange. Oliveira? That’s right!
