MotoGP podcast: Le Mans magnifies Ducati 2023 dilemma

May 16 2022

Enea Bastianini’s spectacular win in the French Grand Prix at Le Mans and his subsequent comments about the 2023 Ducati factory line-up are the headline topic of conversation in the latest episode of The Race MotoGP Podcast.

The only repeat winner in MotoGP so far this year, Bastianini rather sensationally claimed after the finish that Ducati’s under-contract factory rider Francesco Bagnaia prefers Jack Miller as his team-mate going forward because Miller is easier to beat.

Host Toby Moody is joined by Simon Patterson and Valentin Khorounzhiy to discuss that claim as well as Bastianini’s performance.

They also touch upon Bagnaia’s costly error, Honda’s miserable weekend and KTM’s apparent interest in Alex Rins and Miller amid unrest within its current line-up.

Khorounzhiy puts forward his argument for why Fabio Quartararo is comfortably the top rider in the MotoGP field right now, while Aleix Espargaro also receives extended praise.

Finally, some of your submitted questions are answered and discussed.
