This week's episode of the Crash.net MotoGP podcast featuring Keith Huewen focusses on all the hot topics from the official pre-season tests in Sepang and Mandalika.
Huewen, Crash.net MotoGP editor Pete McLaren and Podcast host Harry Benjamin, start by highlighting how - even with receding Covid restrictions in much of the world - a failed PCR test could still prevent a rider from travelling to a race weekend in 2022.
The trio then dive into the testing timesheets and whether they mean much given the rain on day two in Sepang and worryingly poor track surface at Mandalika. They then debate topics such as the Ducati front ride-height system, Francesco Bagnaia's new contract and whether Raul Fernandez should have been allowed back on track after a heavy blow to the head.
Listener Qs include the potential of Marc Marquez and the new Honda, whether Yamaha needs Fabio Quartararo more then he needs them, plus the re-organisation at KTM and progress by Aprilia.
