The Grand Prix of Thailand changed the face of the 2022 MotoGP championship, with rain throwing a spanner in the works for Fabio Quartararo. Neil Morrison, Adam Wheeler, and David Emmett chew over the results, and examine how it played out. We start, of course, with what went wrong for Quartararo, and how tire pressure impacted his race. We go through the compromises teams have to make when setting up bikes for the wet, and the guesses they have to make about the weather.
Then we move on to the 2023 MotoGP calendar, and how it came about. We discuss the impact it will have on the paddock, and Neil reminisces about the end of the 2020 season, without any fondness for the compact schedule. We take a look at the shocking video which emerged of a mechanic physically assaulting Tom Booth-Amos back in 2019, and what it means for the series. And we finish off, as always, with our winners and losers.
