The Paddock Pass Podcast is back with another episode, and in a slightly different format. In this edition, Neil Morrison and David Emmett walk through the biggest talking points that arose from the MotoGP season opener at Qatar.

First up, they discuss whether Marc Marquez vs Andrea Dovizioso will be the defining battle of the 2018 season. Next, they consider whether the Yamaha is as bad as it was in testing, or as good as it was in the Qatar race, and which way the series will fall.

They wrap up the show by discussing their winners and losers from Qatar, and from the preseason testing leading up to Qatar.
