Episode 129 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and this one gives us a preview of the official MotoGP test at the Sepang Circuit in Malaysia.
The show kicks off with a discussion about the progress made at Aprilia, despite the woes of Andrea Iannone and his doping scandal.
There is some juggling likely to occur, depending on Iannone’s racing status, but all signs point to the Aprilia RS-GP making a big step for the 2020 season with its extensive engine and chassis changes.
Of course, there is plenty to talk about from the Yamaha camp as well, including the performance that Jorge Lorenzo has already put in at the private testing already conducted at Sepang earlier this week.
From there, we look the Honda camp, which sees Alex Marquez making progress on his pace, while Marc Marquez and Cal Crutchlow contend with injuries and recovery.
Ducati is another big headline, as the Italian factory is keen to get someone on the Desmosedici GP bike who can win a world title. Could that be Johann Zarco?
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.
