Paddock Pass Podcast Episode 36: History in the Making at Brno

The Brno round of MotoGP was one for the history books, and so Neil Morrison, Scott Jones and David Emmett got together to discuss the events of Brno in the latest episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast.

There was a lot to talk about. Obviously, we take a look at Cal Crutchlow's win, and how making the right choice of tires helped make the difference. That tire choice proved to be crucial, and we give our opinions on what happened to the soft wet tires of the various protagonists, and who, if anyone, is to blame. We celebrate those who chose wisely, but also the riders such as Marc Marquez and Hector Barbera who nursed the soft wet tires home.

Cal Crutchlow's victory ends a 35-year drought for British Grand Prix racing, and we try to put that into some kind of perspective. But we also examine what this result means for the 2016 MotoGP championship, and whether Marc Marquez has the title sewn up. We also ask whether Jorge Lorenzo's seventeenth place at Brno was an unmitigated disaster or the first signs of a change in his fortunes in the wet. 

Crutchlow wasn't the only British rider to win at Brno. We also celebrate John McPhee's excellent win in Moto3, talk about Brad Binder's championship, and take a look at the Moto2 race and how it affects the title race. Plenty to talk about, and plenty to think about:
