With the penultimate triple header in the books, the Paddock Pass Podcast crew take a look back at what could end up being a crucial Teruel round of MotoGP at the Motorland Aragon circuit. Steve English, Neil Morrison, and David Emmett look at how the second round at Aragon played out.
We start off with a discussion of Honda, and where they have improved. What happened to Takaaki Nakagami and Alex Marquez, and whether it really is all down to the new Ohlins shock. We discuss Franco Morbidelli’s outstanding victory, and whether the Suzukis would have had a chance of beating him. We talk about Alex Rins’ progress, and whether Joan Mir’s title will be deserved if he doesn’t win a race, and David coins a truly terrible acronym for Mir’s title campain.
We discuss what happened to the other Yamahas, and why the 2020 Yamaha M1 wasn’t as competitive as the 2019 machine. We ponder Ducati’s miserable weekend, and their up and down season. We touch on KTM’s excellent weekend, and the progress made between the two races. We answer a bunch of reader questions throughout, and finish up with our winners and losers.
