MotoGP Podcast: Can Mir take a title without winning a race?

Oct 19 2020

The latest episode of The Race MotoGP Podcast looks back on a busy weekend at Aragon, which started with Valentino Rossi testing positive for COVID-19, and ended with what could be a decisive swing in the championship fight.

Toby Moody and Simon Patterson reflect on another good weekend for Joan Mir, and the possibility of him becoming champion without winning a race after a third-placed finish behind team-mate Alex Rins and Honda’s Alex Marquez at Aragon.

Fabio Quartararo’s disastrous tumble down the order is explained, as is Maverick Vinales’ gamble for the race, Honda’s change of fortunes with Marquez, what’s making Suzuki tick so well behind the scenes, plus the latest infighting at Ducati.


We also look at the prospect of Andrea Dovizioso spending next year as a test rider, and if he could end up doing so with the number 1 on his bike!

And despite Toby’s frustrations with the whole saga of Andrea Iannone’s doping case, Simon explains the latest developments, and how it’s impacting what could happen next in the 2021 rider market.
