From Qatar to Malaysia: Johann Zarco's fight for the title

Johann Zarco last week took his second Moto2 title in as many seasons, confirming the supremacy of the phenomenal Frenchman in recent years. This finale to his time in the intermediate category, before he makes the move up to MotoGP, comes after intense fight for the title with two top rivals: Alex Rins and Thomas Luthi. The battle between them lasted until the penultimate round of the season in Malaysia.

After a difficult start, in which Zarco was fourth and 31 points off the leader after the race at Le Mans, he put together a streak of four wins and a further podium. This took him into the lead of the overall standings at Assen, and he would not relinquish the spot from then on.  Although his advantage had been as high as 34 points in Austria, Rins clawed his way back to a single point at Aragon and Luthi came into contention during the flyaway rounds. A late-season push from Zarco allowed him to win the title at Sepang, and become the first two-time champion in the history of Moto2.
