In this week's episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast, we look back at the inaugural MotoGP race at the Mandalika International Street Circuit in Indonesia. Adam Wheeler, Steve English, David Emmett, and on a very poor connection from Jakarta airport, Neil Morrison review a drama-filled weekend at Mandalika.
We start off with a discussion of how the rain that came down saved the GP, and stopped the track from falling apart. We go on to talk about the rear tire which Michelin brought, which made life very difficult for some, and ask whether it contributed to Marc Marquez' crash. We examine that crash, and ask what effect it will have on the rest of the season - this was recorded before the announcement that Marquez had suffered another bout of diplopia as a result of the crash. And we talk about Miguel Oliveira's remarkable victory in Indonesia, before finishing up with our winners and losers.
