Fabio Quartararo ending an abject Honda’s Sachsenring MotoGP streak in style takes centre stage in the post-German Grand Prix edition of The Race MotoGP Podcast.
Host Toby Moody is, as always, joined by Simon Patterson and Valentin Khorounzhiy to discuss Quartararo’s latest imperious performance, whether he has an Achilles’ heel in 2022.
There’s also a brief discussion on whether the current Quartararo is already better than Yamaha legend and three-time champion Jorge Lorenzo, and whether the Frenchman could’ve prevailed if pitted against a peak Marc Marquez this year.
Honda’s milestone non-score is touched upon too, as is the fact its riders were suffering from unpalatable heat from the RC213V – leading usual company man Stefan Bradl to lash out.
Khorounzhiy puts forward a theory of why Maverick Vinales may be a genuine MotoGP title contender in 2023, while the crew also talk about Francesco Bagnaia’s latest crash and a pivotal weekend for one of the VR46 Ducati riders.
To end the episode, they give their answers to a listener question on whether series promoter Dorna needs to cap the number of Ducatis on the grid.
