Finally, there is real racing to talk about on the Paddock Pass Podcast, and so Steve English, Neil Morrison, and David Emmett debate everything that happened at the reopening round of MotoGP at Jerez. There is of course the big news of Marc Marquez' injury, the reigning champion breaking his arm. We talk about how it happened, and what it means for the championship.
Then we take a look at all the talking points from the weekend. What does Fabio Quartararo's first win mean for MotoGP? Did Maverick Viñales make the right tire choice? Can Valentino Rossi fix his problems with the rear tire?
We discuss the strength of the Ducatis, whether this is Andrea Dovizioso's best chance to win a MotoGP title, and whether Jack Miller will take points off Dovizioso by winning a race or two. We look at Suzuki's and Aprilia's dismal weekends, and how they happened. And we take a special look at KTM, Pol Espargaro's excellent result, Brad Binder's podiumworthy pace, and whether the KTM is now ready to be a regular podium contender.
We also find time to answer a few listener questions, and look ahead to the next race at Jerez this Sunday.
