Position: 6th – Best time: 1’44.181 – Laps: 13

“Today‘s first practice was very difficult because the track was very dirty. We are pretty far from the usual lap times but we will try to improve the setting and analyse the situation. We will work on the settings because for sure the Michelin tyres behave differently compared to last year. We will work on the bike and at the same time we hope the track conditions improve starting from this afternoon”.

“Today it was same as last year: lap times in today‘s FP1 are same as FP1 in 2015, very slow due to the track conditions. The only difference is that last year I finished in 20th position and today a little higher in the standings but it is not so relevant. We can‘t say much after this session because the lap times are very much influenced by the weather and the tyres. I think this afternoon, with a track a bit more clean, things will be different”.

Riccardo was born in Giulianova, graduated in law at the University of Bologna and decided to do something else. After a stint at ISFORP (public relations training institute) in Milan, he moved to England. He began his career in London in PR, first at MSP Communication and then at Counsel Limited. Then, following his unhealthy passion for sport, he moved to Jean Paul Libert's SDC and started working in two and four-wheelers, this was in 1991/1992. A brief move to Monaco followed, where he worked alongside the owner of Pro COM, a sports marketing agency founded by Nelson Piquet. He returned to Italy and started working in the first person as RTR, first a consulting firm and then a sports marketing company. 
Back in 2001 RTR won the ESCA award for the best sports MKTG project in Italy in the year 2000. Among other things, RTR obtained the highest score among all categories and represented Italy in the ESCA European Contest. From that moment on, RTR will no longer participate in other national or international awards. Over the years he takes some satisfaction and swallows a lot of toads. But he is still here, writing in a disenchanted and simple manner, with the aim of giving practical (unsolicited) advice and food for thought.
