Podcast: MotoGP French GP review

Pramac Ducati rider Jorge Martin put in a perfect weekend to claim pole, sprint and grand prix wins, the latter coming after absorbing immense late pressure from Marc Marquez and Francesco Bagnaia.

Martin is now 38 points clear in the standings and put in the best weekend of his career at a point in which Ducati is nearing a final decision on its second factory team rider for 2025.

He is facing stiff competition from Marc Marquez, though, who came from 13th on the grid to finish second in both the sprint and the grand prix to move to within 40 points of the championship lead.

Having scored his first grand prix podium of the year at Jerez, Marquez is now proving consistent on the year-old Ducati and has set his sights firmly on a factory bike for next year.

On the latest Tank Slappers podcast, Autosport’s Lewis Duncan and’s Oriol Puigdemont discuss Martin and Marquez’s races and what they mean for Ducati’s 2025 decision.

They also look at the ongoing troubles for Honda after another dismal weekend, while pondering what the 2027 regulations will do for MotoGP.
