The official Australian Grand Prix podcast In the Fast Lane has released its latest episode, featuring 1987 500cc World Champion, Wayne Gardner.
Gardner joined In the Fast Lane co-hosts Matt Clayton and Chris Vermeulen, to discuss the evolution of his son Remy and how he has used the momentum of a maiden Moto2™ victory last year to lead this year's championship and his MotoGP™ move with KTM for 2022.
“Without a doubt, winning so convincingly… that gave him the confidence that I can do this and now he understands how to manage the tyres as well,” said Gardner.
Gardner goes on to discuss the success of KTM in MotoGP™ in recent years, why it’s the right move for Remy and how he believes Honda has lost its way.
“I’ve been watching the pace of KTM, they’re incredible, I know the people now and they’re an amazing team of people, Aki is a genius, if he spots talent he knows how to extract it from them,” he continued.
“I think the KTM bike has improved enormously those guys want to win badly, I think Honda have lost their way, they have too many laurels resting on Marquez. He was obviously out for a year or so and they had no results... KTM are definitely on the path of destruction and growth.”
