Podcast MotoGP 'By Ears' – Márquez, protagonist without getting on the bike

The World Championship faces the twelfth stop of the 2022 calendar starting this Thursday in Austria, and Uri Puigdemont and Germán Garcia Casanova analyze, as usual, in our MotoGP podcast the points of interest of a weekend in which Marc Márquez will be present and will offer a meeting with the media that promises to be one of the highlights of the Austrian event.

Márquez is still in the process of rehabilitation from the fourth operation on his right arm that he underwent last June, and all interest now revolves around the times that the runner will set to reappear.

But the weekend appointment in Spielberg will have many other ingredients, such as the announcement of the signing of Pol Espargaró by the Tech3-KTM team and the possibility that the bikes of the Poncharal formation will be painted with the colors of the Gas brand Gas .

On a sporting level, the Red Bull Ring layout opens a chicane located between turns 1 and 3, in pursuit of a safety that not all drivers consider to be guaranteed with the change. The novelty is that the straight now has a passage through a double right-left curve in which the riders will have to completely stop the bike, a situation that does not benefit bikes like the Yamaha , as Fabio Quartararo has pointed out.

The Frenchman, solid leader of the championship, has seen how in the last two races Pecco Bagnaia cut him many points and a new skid this Sunday could make the defender of the crown panic. In addition to Pecco, almost all of the Ducati will be tough rivals to beat for El Diablo, without forgetting that Maverick Viñales has marked this race in red as the scene of his first victory with Aprilia, and that Aleix Espargaró, after two finishes of Complicated week, he wants to be back in front fighting for the podium. 

Undoubtedly a good number of seasonings to turn Spielberg’s weekend into a show that we can miss.
