With Honda admitting it won’t make Marc Marquez see out his 2024 contract if he wants to leave, The Race MotoGP Podcast delves into a weekend of rider market bombshells and looks at what might happen next.

Marquez didn’t even race (again) in the Dutch Grand Prix, yet his weekend of clumsy crashes, forlorn midfield performance and seismic media sessions is top of Simon Patterson, Valentin Khorounzhiy and Matt Beer’s agenda in our post-race episode.

The possibility of Alex Rins or Joan Mir also exiting Honda and whether Assen Moto2 race winner Jake Dixon could step straight into a 2024 factory MotoGP seat are discussed, too.

Eventually we also make it onto talking about the racing itself, and the very comfortable position Pecco Bagnaia has going into the summer break (despite Marco Bezzecchi’s best efforts), plus Brad Binder’s astounding deja vu podium loss.

Later in the summer break we’ll be answering listeners’ questions on all things MotoGP 2023, but particularly any topics or riders you feel we haven’t talked about enough so far this year. Send your questions by email or voice note to podcasts@the-race.com.
