Episode 187 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and this one dives back into the team launches for the MotoGP Championship, as we look at Repsol Honda’s team debut for the season.
To handle that topic, we have Neil Morrison, Steve English, David Emmett, and Adam Wheeler on the mics, and before they weigh-in on Repsol Honda’s bold new graphics, they each give a moment and some thoughts about Fausto Gresini, who recently passed away after battling COVID-19.
His absence in the grand prix paddock will surely be felt, and he will be missed. If you would like to get a fuller picture of the man, there is also this obituary by Mat Oxley on Motor Sport Magazine.
While usually team launches are a bit tedious, the Repsol Honda launch proved interesting because it was the first time that the MotoGP press has had a chance to talk to Marc Marquez about his injuries and recovery. The show includes a clip from Marc talking about this subject.
We also hear from Michael Laverty, before taking some questions from our Patreon supporters.
All-in-all, it is a lively show and one that is sure to cause some conversations with the Paddock Pass Podcast community. Give it a listen and enjoy!
