The return of Marc Marquez left us all a lot to talk about on the latest episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast, and on Tuesday, Steve English, Neil Morrison, Adam Wheeler, and David Emmett took a long look back at the first-lap mayhem which unfolded. But before we got to the incidents between Marquez, Fabio Quartararo, and Takaaki Nakagami, we had a long and heated discussion about team orders. Should Ducati tell Enea Bastianini to stand aside for Pecco Bagnaia? And should Bastianini take a blind bit of notice if they did?
We also discuss Izan Guevara's win in Moto3, Pedro Acosta's victory in Moto2, and what was behind the Sterilgarda Max mechanics stopping Adrian Fernandez from leaving the pits in Moto3. We finish off as usual with winners and losers, and take a brief look ahead to Motegi.
