MotoGP podcast: The fallout from Marquez/Bagnaia clash at Portimao


The first big flashpoint of Marc Marquez’s Ducati career came in just his second MotoGP race weekend with his new employer, as he and reigning champion stablemate Pecco Bagnaia collided in the Portuguese Grand Prix.

Who was most at fault? And what does it mean for the title fight and Ducati internal relations?

Simon Patterson, Valentin Khorounzhiy and Matt Beer debate that in The Race MotoGP Podcast.

We also get into Pedro Acosta’s incredible podium in only his second MotoGP race weekend. Are his performances more impressive than even Marquez’s (eventually title winning) rookie season? One of our panel reckons so.

Maverick Vinales’ breakthrough win and weird grand prix exit, whether sprint wins really count, Jorge Martin’s new maturity and title chance and Ducati’s growing 2025 rider headache also feature.
