MotoGP Podcast: Ducati won but missed an open goal

Sep 20 2022

Francesco Bagnaia took another 20 points out of Fabio Quartararo’s MotoGP championship lead at Aragon – but should it have been 25?

The Race MotoGP Podcast’s latest episode centres around Ducati’s decision to allow Enea Bastianini to fight, and ultimately defeat, Bagnaia for victory at the Spanish venue.

Host Toby Moody is joined by Valentin Khorounzhiy and Simon Patterson to ponder whether Bagnaia may rue the five points he lost to Bastianini come the end of the season, and whether the good PR from avoiding team orders is worth the added risk to Ducati’s chances of winning its first riders’ title since 2007.

They also discuss Quartararo’s ‘second crash’ that came after his Marc Marquez-triggered Aragon GP exit, and a Brad Binder performance that led to him being credited as one of the best riders on the grid.

Finally, the crew close out with a chat about the surreal Moto3 mechanic interference controversy from Saturday.
