Episode 127 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and this one covers this weeks’ whirlwind round of news from the Yamaha MotoGP team and its rider lineup for the 2020 season and beyond.
For these topics, we have Steve English, Neil Morrison, and David Emmett on the mics, as the trio discusses the announcements that Yamaha has made, and what the ramifications are for the grand prix paddock.
Interspersed in the conversation too is some listener questions related to Yamaha’s news, which the guys answer with their behind-the-scenes knowledge.
As you would expect, the topics we are covering are the following: the three-year contract signed with Maverick Viñales, the promotion of Fabio Quartararo to the factory team, what the means for Valentino Rossi’s future, and the return of Jorge Lorenzo – this time as a Yamaha test rider.
As one would expect, there is a bit to talk about – especially with concerns to the future of Valentino Rossi. Will this be the last year of The Doctor racing in MotoGP? Will he ride a satellite bike next year, with full factory support? Will he start his own MotoGP team? These topics are taken in turn by our experts.
As usual, the show is packed with great commentary from the guys regarding what is going on in the paddock, and we think you will enjoy listening to their insights.
