It was inevitable that the weather would have the last word at Le Mans, and when conditions produced the first flag-to-flag MotoGP race since Brno 2017, there was plenty of drama up and down the field. So it is unsurprising that the Paddock Pass Podcast crew had plenty to discuss after the weekend. Steve English, Neil Morrison, Adam Wheeler, and David Emmett gather to analyze just what went on at Le Mans.
The crew kick off with a debate on the merits of the flag-to-flag races, whether there is a better system to handle rain races, and the problems in trying to avoid flag-to-flag races. We discuss the move by Marc Marquez on Fabio Quartararo while entering pit lane, the legality and why he did it. We talk about Marc Marquez' first crash in the race, and what that indicates about where Honda is in terms of development. And we praise Jack Miller's remarkable win at Le Mans, his second win in a row.
We ask whether Alex Rins is throwing a championship away by crashing too much, we debate the outstanding race by Fabio Quartararo, in his first flag-to-flag race, and his strength compared to the other Yamahas. And we discuss who did well in the mixed conditions, and how the race was won. Then we finish up with our winners and losers.
