Podcast: How Morbidelli scored his maiden MotoGP win

MotoGP crowned its fourth first-time winner in an incredibly dramatic 2020 season, as Franco Morbidelli scorched to victory in the San Marino Grand Prix.

The Petronas SRT rider endured a tough 2019 as he faced up to the surprise challenge of rookie sensation team-mate Fabio Quartararo. But Morbidelli worked on himself across the winter and has been a much stronger force, with the 2017 Moto2 champion absorbing immense pressure from mentor Valentino Rossi early on to dominate the Misano race.
