Silly Season in MotoGP just seems to be getting wilder. In the latest episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast, Neil Morrison and Steve English get together to discuss the newest round of rumors on who goes where, in both MotoGP and WorldSBK.
Steve and Neil first take a deep dive into the growing rumors that Cal Crutchlow could join Aprilia for 2021. They discuss the situation at Honda, why Crutchlow would leave LCR rather than Takaaki Nakagami, why Crutchlow would consider taking the ride at Aprilia, and what to expect at Aprilia.
They then go on to take another look at the Andrea Dovizioso situation, and Simone Battistella, his manager's, suggestion that the Ducati rider could take a sabbatical in 2021, rather than the pay cut on offer from Ducati. And that leads on to a discussion of the rumors swirling around Jorge Lorenzo, and whether he really is a realistic option for the factory Ducati seat next year.
Steve and Neil then wrap up the show with a discussion of the WorldSBK test currently being held at Barcelona, and what the times there mean for the series once racing returns at Jerez on August 2nd.
