Episode 158 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and it sees us covering the incredible Austrian GP at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria.
The guys have no shortage of topics to discuss for this one, and right off the bat there is the conversation about the incident between Johann Zarco and Franco Morbidelli, and the massive controversy that the crash created.
Accordingly, the guys analyze who was at fault, how dangerous the Red Bull Ring is for MotoGP riders, what the fallout for the series might be, and how this will affect Morbidelli’s engine allocation.
Of course, beyond the crash there was a whole race to talk about, which also had plenty of noteworthy action. Topics include Andrea Dovizioso’s strong race win, as well as his announcement that he will leave Ducati at the end of the year.
The guys also talk about how the crash and restarted race affected the tires available for the MotoGP riders. And then, they move onto Joan Mir’s podium, what could have been for Pol Espargaro, Alex Rins’ crash, the state of KTM, Brad Binder and Miguel Oliveira, why Maverick Viñales seems in deep trouble, and more.
