After the summer break, the MotoGP World Championship returned with the British Grand Prix, and with it our MotoGP podcast returns, in which Uri Puigdemont and Germán Garcia Casanova analyze everything that happened over the weekend.
Pecco Bagnaia ‘s unexpected victory at Silverstone, where he did not find the rhythm or speed until the same race on Sunday, combined with the eighth place finish in which the championship leader, Fabio Quartararo , connects Ducati again and completely in the fight for the crown 2022.
Quartararo, leader of the contest, is completely alone. At Yamaha there is no other rider who can lend him a hand, much less defend him from the attacks of his rivals. Up to four Ducati finished ahead of the Frenchman in the British race, in addition to Maverick Viñales ‘ Aprilia, who was second in his best result since landing at Noale’s house and, as promised, deducted points from the Frenchman in his battle, also, with Aleix Espargaró .
An Espargaró that Fabio wanted to make less of by not considering him a rival for the title, at least not so much with Pecco, despite the fact that he is much closer in the general classification. In fact, the Catalan missed a golden opportunity to subtract points from the leader, a very hard crash in FP4 compromised his weekend, and it could have been even worse. As it was, giving up just one point at the end of the day was a lesser evil.
We come to the final part of the season and things adjust just when the Ducatis are at their best. With Pecco winning, Jack Miller regularly making podiums, and the duo of young candidates, Jorge Martín and Enea Bastianini , being able to finish ahead of the leader, without a doubt eight heart-stopping races await us until the outcome of Valencia.
The revision to which Marc Márquez will undergo at the end of August, which should mark the times of his reappearance, and the definitive withdrawal of Andrea Dovizioso , are other topics that we analyze in our usual MotoGP podcast.
