Episode 83 of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out, and in it we see Steve EnglishNeil Morrison & David Emmett on the mics, as they discuss the recent San Marino GP at Misano.

Before we can get to a dissection of the weekend’s racing, the first part of the show covers the Romano Fenati situation, and gets the perspective of these three MotoGP pundits regarding the Moto2 incident.

After a lengthy conversation about Fenati, the show turns to the Ducati MotoGP program, and talks about how the Italian motorcycle is widely held as the best on the grid. Despite having to take on the Ducatis though, Marc Marquez has still been able to fend off Dovizioso and Lorenzo in the Championship results.

This is because Marc Marquez is managing to make the best of his Honda motorcycle, and the rise of stiff competition from the two factory Ducati riders. As such, the guys dissect how Marquez is tackling Duati’s two-pronged approach, and as a result is leading the MotoGP Championship.

The show then turns to cover the situation a Yamaha, and the drought of wins that the Japanese brand is experiencing, contrasting those results with the rise of the Ducati. Those troubles at Yamaha lead to a conversation about test riders, and how that role is changing in the MotoGP paddock.

With Steve hosting this week’s show, he fires a “lightning round of questions” to Neil and David, which provide some interesting answers. Then as usual, the show finishes with our winners and losers from the weekend, which you won’t want to miss.
