VIDEO - We comment on the results of the first day of free practice at the Le Mans circuit in the company of Carlo Pernat and with guest Davide Tardozzi. A Ducati that on the French circuit saw Martin and Bagnaia shine, but also saw two important names out of Q2, those of Bastianini and Marc Marquez

MotoGP, TGPOne Le Mans, Pernat: Ducati, who goes up and who goes down.

Friday at Le Mans saw an impregnable Martin soar in the lap time rankings, chased, however, by a Pecco Bagnaia in great form from the start of the weekend. The two Ducati standard-bearers are, however, undermined by KTM's enfant prodige Acosta, with the third best time.

Aprilia also had a good Friday, placing both riders in Q2, as did the Ducatis of Fabio Di Giannantonio, Bezzecchi and Morbidelli. There were, however, also some great exclusions, among them primarily a Bastianini who paid for a wrong choice of tire and came close to the top 10 for a few thousandths, but the Rimini rider has shown that he has the pace to be a protagonist in the French weekend.

Same fate also for Marc Marquez, also protagonist of a crash, tried at the last second to grab a fast lap without success. It is the first time since the beginning of the season that the Spaniard misses Q2 since he began his adventure riding for Ducati in the Gresini team. The crowd flocked since Friday has perhaps also given extra motivation to the circuit's darling Quartararo, who drags his Yamaha into the top 10, while the extremely negative period continues for Honda, which cannot find a square and sees its riders at the bottom of the standings. We talk about this and more with Carlo Pernat.
