MotoGP Podcast: Bagnaia blows title race wide open
Just when it seemed he’d limited the championship damage caused by his terrifying Barcelona crash, defending champion Pecco Bagnaia threw the title race open again with a massive error in the inaugural Indian Grand Prix.
Simon Patterson, Valentin Khorounzhiy and Matt Beer debate how costly that might be on The Race MotoGP Podcast. Might this be a mistake too far for Bagnaia, given Marco Bezzecchi and Jorge Martin’s growing form and confidence?
There had been plenty of uncertainty about MotoGP’s first visit to India all season, and Simon has a lot of tales to share about the fraught process of getting there and some of the quirks of the weekend (from striking marshals to monkeys in the pits) but is also convinced the Buddh race can actually become a MotoGP season highlight.
We also discuss a surprise return to form for three past champions and the latest twists in the Marc Marquez 2024 ride saga as it goes into its potential crunch week.
