MotoGP podcast: What to make of Oliveira’s redemptive win

Miguel Oliveira’s formbook-shredding win at a wet Mandalika is the chief topic of discussion in the latest episode of The Race MotoGP Podcast.

Host Toby Moody is joined by podcast regulars Simon Patterson and Valentin Khorounzhiy to debate whether Oliveira’s display of controlled dominance tells us anything new about the up-and-down Portuguese rider, or about the KTM bike in 2022.

Fabio Quartararo’s wet-weather star turn and the continued travails of pre-season favorite Francesco Bagnaia are also touched upon, while there’s also a conversation about whether Marc Marquez’s four-crash weekend is indicative of a return of questionable past habits.

Finally, Khorounzhiy touches upon his lingering concern over Suzuki, while Patterson explains how a forced Michelin tire carcass change turned the weekend upside down.
