Episode 225 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and this one welcomes back the MotoGP Championship from its long summer break, as we preview the Styria GP in Austria.
The crew start off with a look at where the protagonists stand going into the second half of the season, and how the back-to-back races at the Red Bull Ring might affect Fabio Quartararo’s championshp lead.
They discuss who we think will shine at the Red Bull Ring, and just how competitive the Yamaha can be.
There is also a discussion about the impending return of two veterans, with Dani Pedrosa returning as a wildcard for KTM for one race, and Cal Crutchlow replacing Franco Morbidelli for the next three rounds in the Petronas Yamaha team.
We wrap up the show with a few wild predictions, of who might win and who might lose. That involves doing our best not to reel off a list of ten possible winners, an endeavor which was not entirely successful.
As always, the conversation is insightful and lively, and adds another dimension to what goes on in the MotoGP Championship paddock.
