The Paddock Pass Podcast hit the jackpot this week. Adam and David were at the Mugello test when the news that Jorge Martin had signed for Aprilia broke, and were able to cover it in the Monday night Paddock Notes show. Then on Wednesday morning, as we were getting ready to record the midweek show, Ducati announced that Marc Marquez would be in the factory team for 2025 and 2026. 

So this week's show is packed with content. How will Jorge Martin do on an Aprilia? How did the contract come about? Did Aprilia steal Ducati's thunder? What does Marc Marquez to the factory Ducati seat mean for MotoGP, and for Pecco Bagnaia? What happens with Marquez' sponsors? Is Tech3 the best option for Enea Bastianini? What does this mean for Pramac and for the rest of the grid? Plus we answer some questions from Patreon backers.
