Episode 298 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and this one sees us looking back on the Japanese GP at Motegi.
In the show, the guys cover a lot of ground, starting off with the strange circumstances of the weekend, and the effect a lack of track time had on results.
Part of that was Jack Miller’s impressive win at Motegi, and we discuss why Ducati are seemingly incapable of winning a rider’s championship. We discuss Pecco Bagnaia’s mistake – and Aleix Espargaro’s engine map misery – and how that gave Fabio Quartararo a chance to extend his championship lead.
Then they talk about Aron Canet, how he revealed to Spanish media the secret behind his podium bowtie, and why he is dropping that custom.
The guys ask whether he would be better off in the WorldSBK paddock where his tattoos would be less of a hindrance, after he claimed teams in the MotoGP paddock turned him down because of them.
Naturally, the show discusses Marc Marquez’s return to fitness and his fourth-place finish. We give our winners and losers, and then a quick look ahead to this weekend’s race at Buriram in Thailand.
