Our TGPOne was right on time after the Barcelona practice session, with Carlo Pernat commenting on the first day of the Catalan GP. A Friday under the sign of the Aprilia ridden by Aleix Espargarò, who doesn't seem to have been affected by his decision to retire at the end of the season. Our surprise guest, Massimo Rivola, joked about it: "We'll have a rider retire at every GP."

The competition is fierce, with the Ducatis struggling more than usual. "It's only practice. I'd wait because what makes a difference in the race is the rider. And the Ducati riders, at this moment, are superior to the others," Pernat stated. "I think there's going to be a great Q1. Some top riders risk being left out, especially the Ducati ones."

The manager from Genova didn't shy away from commenting on the riders market: "Nothing has changed. They're all waiting for Ducati's decision. There won't be an announcement at the moment. We'll have to wait a few more days. After the decision, they'll have to start negotiations."

Loris Capirossi also participated in our TGPOne. We asked him about the calendar: "The GP in India? It's difficult. Replace it with Kazakhstan? That could be an idea."
