It’s amazing. We thought MotoGP was the regular series that had the most potential problems heading into 2024 and it’s delivered new ownership, three classic races in a row, and a likeable new set of regulations. Who’d have thought?

Jorge Martin held his nerve in an incredibly intense French GP in front of 120,000 rabid home fans, as Marc Marquez took some revenge on Francesco Bagnaia after beating him with a stunning final lap divebomb. Martin after another perfect Sprint/Win double, now has a 38-point lead in the standings. But will it be enough for him to claim the Factory Ducati seat over Marquez or current resident Enea Bastianini?

We also talk about the the new regulations and there’s some big changes planned. Ride-height and holeshot devices banned? Fairings reduced in width and shorter from the front. Fuel reduced to 20 litres from 22. Rear aero now included in homologation. And engine displacement reduced from 1000cc to 850. But will it work? And will there be after-effects?

All that and more on another loaded Motorsport101!
