After a barnstorming race at Phillip Island, the Paddock Pass Podcast crew got together to discuss whether Phillip Island truly is the greatest race track on the planet. After the usual pleasantries, Neil Morrison, Adam Wheeler, and David Emmett dive into what makes Phillip Island such a magnificent circuit, despite its many shortcomings. We talk wildlife, circuit layout, negating the effects of aerodynamics and ride-height devices, Alex Rins' victory, and how Marc Marquez made the soft tire work.
We then ask whether the 2022 MotoGP title is already in the bag for Pecco Bagnaia, and whether Fabio Quartararo can do anything to call a halt to the factory Ducati rider's seemingly unstoppable progress. We all make our predictions for who is going to win the title (thereby guaranteeing they are cursed), before wrapping up with our winners and losers.
