Puig: "Marc is a normal guy. But racing, he's an animal"

Comparing his retirement to Lorenzo, talent spotting and Phil Collins, becoming a Team Manager and much more feature on the MotoGP™ Podcast

The MotoGP™ Podcast team are back and raring to go in 2020 as an in-depth chat with Repsol Honda Team Manager Alberto Puig kicks off proceedings. And this year, the MotoGP™ Podcast is bigger and better than ever before. Now, the show will be available everywhere from Apple and Google Podcasts to Spotify, Soundcloud and more – making it easier than ever for our incredible audience to engage with MotoGP™. A new episode will be published every week beginning on the 27th of March, with a new one every Monday thereafter.

A fascinating chat with Puig makes for fantastic quarantine listening, as the former Grand Prix racer turned talent spotter and Team Manager opens up on a number of topics. The highly-respected Spaniard delves into how his career prematurely ended and the void that created in his life, while comparing his retirement from racing to that of Jorge Lorenzo’s – Puig offers his characteristically honest thoughts on the amicable split between the five-time World Champion and Honda.

In addition, Puig talks about his job as a talent scout and mentor for the next generation of MotoGP™ stars, comparing it to Genesis and Phil Collins – seriously. The conversation moves onto how he became Repsol Honda Team Manager, the challenges that come with it and his thoughts on his 2020 lineup – Marc and Alex Marquez.

It’s a must-listen for any MotoGP™ fan, so what are you waiting for? Grab yourself a cuppa and kick back to the dulcet tones of Matt Dunn, Fran Wyld and Alberto Puig.
