The latest episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and in it, Neil Morrison and David Emmett take a look back at the MotoGP flyaways, and the fallout from those races. There was plenty to talk about as ever, and we take a deep dive into how they played out.
With strong Yamaha success, we discuss Maverick Viñales' resurgence, and his win over Marc Marquez, the only rider to beat the Repsol Honda man by more than a second, for the second time in a row. The win at Sepang came on the back of a thrilling Phillip Island race, which saw Viñales crash on the last lap behind Marquez.
But Viñales wasn't the only strong Yamaha, Fabio Quartararo had a superb pole at Sepang, but came up short in the race, and Valentino Rossi nearly got on the podium. Franco Morbidelli also had a strong few races, and Neil and David discuss what this means for Yamaha.
We also discuss how Ducati fared, and what Andrea Dovizioso's podium in Sepang meant. We look at the situation in Repsol Honda, with Marc Marquez continuing his streak of races which he either won or finished second in. We talk about Jack Miller, and ponder his prospects, especially with Pecco Bagnaia have struggled this year.
We take a look at some of the moves announced during the flyaways, what Iker Lecuona might do on the KTM in 2020, and how Brad Binder might do in the factory KTM team. That leads on to a discussion of what might happen as MotoGP Silly Season kicks off for 2021, and who might leave and who might move up from Moto2. And then we finish off with our winners and losers for the flyaways.
