The latest episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast features Neil Morrison of Roadracing World and Crash.net and MotoMatters.com's own David Emmett taking a long look back at the Sachsenring, and discussing the events of MotoGP test in Austria.
We kick off with a long look at the wet weather race in Germany, and discuss the concerns Michelin had ahead of the weekend. On a drying track, tire choice and pit strategy became key, and Neil and David discuss who benefited and who didn't. They also take a look at the improving form of both Cal Crutchlow and Scott Redding, and ask whether the 2016 MotoGP championship is already over.
There is also a little discussion about the changing fortunes at Ducati, and how that bike has developed through the season. And in look at the test in Austria, Neil and David also speculate on Casey Stoner's times, and wonder whether he will ever actually race as a wildcard. The test at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg was also the first time the KTM MotoGP bike was on track together with the other MotoGP machines, and we try to dissect the times and progress of the machine.
We then wrap up the show with a look at the Moto2 and Moto3 races, as well as the latest and most interesting bits of gossip of who goes where in Moto2 in 2017. Enjoy the show!
