We kick off our discussion with what turned out to be the biggest story of the test, the news that Marc Marquez was to have surgery on his right shoulder, after having dislocated it a number of times during the 2019 season. We talk about how the news came out, and Tammy works out where Marquez picked up the injury originally.
Next, we talk about the situation around Karel Abraham and the Reale Avintia team. Tammy interviewed Abraham on the Sunday before the test, and he told her how he learned he had been fired and what had happened in the run up to the team terminating his contract. We go over that situation, and what it means for Johann Zarco taking Abraham's place in that team.
Then we go over what the six MotoGP factories were testing at Jerez, what the riders said and what they want from their manufacturers. And we finish off, as ever, with our winners and losers.
