MotoGP championship rivals Pecco Bagnaia and Jorge Martin went wheel-to-wheel again in the Malaysian Grand Prix, while also dodging other Ducatis, but the big theme of their weekend was tyre pressures and the potential for penalties over them.
Are we at a point when tyre-pressure monitoring is going to decide the world title outcome while wrecking all the racing up to then and beyond?
That's the worst-case scenario Simon Patterson, Valentin Khorounzhiy and Matt Beer consider on The Race MotoGP Podcast, as well as what can be done about it.
How the title fight stands now, the spectacular resurgence of Enea Bastianini, a gung-ho Alex Marquez cameo and a sad MotoGP return for World Superbike steamroller Alvaro Bautista are also delved into.
And as Honda's quest to find a 2024 Marc Marquez replacement takes yet another twist, we debate whether Luca Marini and Repsol Honda are right for each other, and what it means for everyone else who's been swept into this particular rider market saga.
