The first race is in the bag, and so the Paddock Pass Podcast crew gather to discuss the aftermath. Steve English, Neil Morrison, Adam Wheeler, and David Emmett take an in-depth look at what happened in Qatar.
We kick off with our moments of the weekend, including Enea Bastianini's win, Jack Miller's frustration, and Ayumi Sasaki throwing away a certain win. Then we go through the big topics to emerge from Qatar. We talk about the state of Ducati, with the old bike winning and the new bike struggling. We look at Yamaha, and how much trouble they are in. We discuss Honda, and the gains they've made. And we discuss how the impressions of testing failed to materialize during the race.
We also answer some rider questions, including explaining the difference and purpose of the ride-height devices and holeshot devices, and the process by which they might end up banned. and we finish off with our winners and losers.
