Prior to the races, the Italian Navy showcased its impressive F-35B and AV-8B Harrier aircraft with flyovers above the circuit. This was followed by a rock rendition of the Italian National Anthem performed by Giulio Maceroni and Alberta Saccani.
The weekend concluded with Jorge Martin winning for Pramac Ducati, followed closely by Marco Bezzecchi, also for Ducati, just 1.3 seconds behind. Pecco Bagnaia, despite a major accident the previous week, finished in third place. It was a remarkable one-two-three finish for Ducati at one of Italy's most iconic racing circuits.
