MotoMatters.com, in association with Motor Sport Magazine, is proud to feature the rider insights of 1983 and 1985 500cc world champion Freddie Spencer. After every MotoGP race, Fast Freddie will share what he saw and learned from the race.
In the latest episode of Freddie Spencer's Motor Sport Magazine video blog, the former world champion turns his attention to the events of Misano. Spencer first discusses his time racing at the circuit, a track which was very different in his time. He talks about what he learned racing there, but more importantly, what he learned about motorcycle racing as a team sport.
Naturally, Spencer can't avoid talking about the two big incidents at Misano: Romano Fenati's actions during the Moto2 race, and Valentino Rossi's refusal to shake the hand of Marc Marquez in the pre-event press conference. He then discusses the strong weekend Jack Miller had, and goes on to discuss the events of the MotoGP race, and what it means for the championship.
For more insights from Freddie Spencer, his autobiography Feel: My Story is currently on sale.
And for those who can't watch the video, here's an audio-only version of Freddie Spencer's rider insights
