The latest episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast was a bumper edition, with so much to discuss after three remarkable races. Steve English, Adam Wheeler, Neil Morrison, and David Emmett take an hour and a half to cover all of the races and much more.
Of course we talk about Jorge Martin's astonishing pole and incredible race, finishing on the podium in just his second MotoGP outing. We talk about Johann Zarco, and whether being in a satellite team can have benefits in terms of pressure. We talk about Fabio Quartararo's incredible victory, and how the Yamaha matched up against the Ducati. And we ask whether we can really draw any conclusions from spending 11 days riding in such unique and unusual conditions.
We discuss the clash between Jack Miller and Joan Mir, and get the expert opinion of BT Sport commentator and ex-MotoGP racer Michael Laverty about who was to blame, and whether a penalty should have been issued. We discuss the state of the championship, and what Marc Marquez must be thinking when he looks at the standings. And we discuss what happened to Valentino Rossi and Franco Morbidelli, as well as the remarkable turnaround for the KTM riders.
We spend some time on Moto2 and Moto3 as well, and have words of praise for the rookies in both classes. We debate the meaning of Pedro Acosta's win as a rookie, and after starting from pit lane. And we have a long and interesting debate on the step from Red Bull Rookies and the FIM CEV Moto3 Junior World Championship and the Moto3 class at the Grand Prix level. And we finish off with our winners and losers.
