Paddock Pass Podcast #103 – French GP

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Episode 103 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and in it we see Neil Morrison and David Emmett on the microphones, as we discuss the happenings at the French GP at Le Mans.

As usual, the guys cover the on track action at the race, as well as the goings on behind the scenes in the paddock.

The main topic of the show is Marc Marquez, who rode a master class race in France, and showed a truly unstoppable form throughout the race weekend.

As such, the show focuses on how the Spaniard has adapted his style to suit the 2019 Honda RC213V, exploiting the machine that HRC created for him and Jorge Lorenzo.

The show also discusses the strong result for Ducati Corse, second place through fourth, though how the Italian brand is still falling short of the Marquez/Honda combination.

Moving onto Yamaha, Le Mans was a good outing for Valentino Rossi, with a solid fifth place ride, considering the state of the Yamaha factory team. The guys discuss what Yamaha needs to be able to match the Honda and the Ducati, and whether they can get it before the end of the year.

The show also discuss KTM, which clocked its best result ever in MotoGP, with Pol Espargaro’s sixth place finish. Is the new-found success due to the Austrian brand’s new carbon fiber swingarm? David and Neil discuss.

Of course the show ends with David and Neil talking about their winners and losers for the weekend, and for bonus points, this episode includes audio from Valentino Rossi, Fabio Quartararo, and Pol Espargaro.
