Is Bagnaia back in the title hunt after Silverstone success?

The Race MotoGP Podcast

Aug 8 2022 • 1 hr 16 mins

The Silverstone MotoGP race provided one of the closest finishes ever - with the top nine split by only four seconds. But was the race actually any good, and why were so few people there to witness it? Host Toby Moody is joined by Simon Patterson, Valentin Khorounzhiy and special guest Josh Suttill to discuss the merits of the 20-lap contest and the low fan attendance figures. They also talk about the state of the title race after Silverstone, and whether winner Francesco Bagnaia can be seen as back in the hunt - with Aleix Espargaro hurting himself and Fabio Quartararo having an uncharacteristically muted weekend. Honda's continued MotoGP travails against the backdrop of its Suzuka 8 Hours success are another topic of conversation, as is Johann Zarco's latest pole-to-heartbreak outing.
