Paddock Pass Podcast Episode 163: Maverick Masters Misano 2 Mayhem

Another MotoGP race, another Paddock Pass Podcast. Freshly returned from Misano, Neil Morrison talks to David Emmett about yet another weird weekend of racing for MotoGP. We start off with Maverick Viñales remarkable turnaround, from despair on Friday to victory on Sunday, and discuss if we can draw any conclusions about Viñales' title chances from this performance.

Next up, we look at Pecco Bagnaia, and how close he came to victory, and the reason he gave for crashing out of the lead at the race. We discuss Joan Mir, whether he is now the favorite for the championship, and whether the Suzuki is the best bike on the grid. We talk the battle for the podium, how Pol Espargaro held up Fabio Quartararo, and whether Quartararo's excuse that he didn't see the track limits warning on his dashboard stands up.

Then we talk about how KTM turned around their weekend after a poor outing seven days previously. Then we answer some listener emails, and finish up with our winners and losers from the weekend.

There is more to come. Later this week, there will be another episode about the Barcelona round of WorldSBK, featuring Steve English and Gordon Ritchie. So look out for that.
