Paolo Simoncelli’s driver, guest of the episode: “The 100 meters thrilled me, but I would choose the decathlon. In 2022 I don’t know if I’m staying in Moto3 or going to Moto2. Zeltweg? I don’t like it, there are only 5 curves “
This week’s MotoG-Podcast, the talk on the world of motorcycles conducted by Paolo Ianieri and Zoran Filicic, is a very Olympic episode. Because with the latter in connection from Tokyo, where he is following the Games for Discovery +, the guest of the week is the “host” Tatsuki Suzuki, the Japanese driver, or rather from Japan as he likes to call himself, of the Sic58 Squadra Corse team engaged in Moto3. “I’m following the Olympics, the race that thrilled me most were the 100 meters won by Marcell Jacobs, but the first few days I watched the surf a lot – he says -. If I could participate in an Olympics, the specialty I would choose is decathlon, I like this combination of sport where you have to be good at everything ”.
We obviously talk about returning to the track this weekend at Zeltweg (“Five weeks off is too long”) on a track that Tatsu doesn’t love too much: “I don’t like it, there are only 5 corners, you can never make a difference, while I love Misano Adriatico and Austin ”. And we talk about the future: “At the beginning of the season with Paolo (Simoncelli; ed) we said to each other that this would be the last year together, but I still don’t know if I will still be in Moto3 or Moto2 in 2022”. Finally, a culinary gem, with Suzuki who reveals that he is a good cook: “My specialty is katsudon, which for us Japanese also has a special meaning, since katsu means winning. And in fact, if you look at the Honda managers in F1, they eat katsudon before each race ”.
