Paddock Pass Podcast Episode 137: The Fabio Quartararo Show

There may be no racing going on for the foreseeable future, but there is still plenty to talk about. This week's episode of the Paddck Pass Podcast is a special about Fabio Quartararo. Steve English, Neil Morrison, and David Emmett gather remotely to discuss the past, present, and future of the astonishing French youngster.

We take a look back at how Quartararo entered the Grand Prix paddock, and the expectations placed upon him. We talk about the challenges and pressures he faced, and how he responded to them. And we discuss how he handled his first year in the premier class.

Interspersed with our discussions, we get the opinions of experts. We have input from Diego Gubellini, Quartararo's crew chief at the Petronas Yamaha team, from Torleif Hartelman, rider coach for the Petronas team, and former 500cc racer and now official pit lane reporter Simon Crafar.

Sometimes sport can be a dstraction from our own over-active minds. The chat is a similar distraction too.
