MotoGp 2021 rumours

Postby duke63 » 12 May 2020, 19:05

Jorge Martin linked with Ducati. Seems they tried to persuade both Vinales and Marc Marquez to join and failed on both counts, so they are looking to the future instead.

IF Dovi leaves Ducati for KTM, then Ducati may look to re sign Lorenzo.

;(

Why would they put Alex Marquez in LCR when he has a full factory ride with his brother?

Some rumours that they hired Alex to get Marc to sign for 4 years and now he has done that, HRC can push Alex sideways as they always knew he wasn't anywhere near a race winner. HRC have lots of form for back stabbing over the years.

Also strong rumours that if Dovi does not come to an agreement with Ducati, then Lorenzo will return to ride for them.

I'm with you....he's a prima-donna. He's like the Mariah Carey of MotoGP. When everything goes his way he's great, but even minor stuff seems to throw him off-kilter.

Sounds like there is a possibility both Dovi and Rossi might not be racing next year.

Lorenzo to replace Dovi next year, as Dovi is refusing too accept the terms offered.

I think the whole world is going to have to live in a very different financial enviroment.

I suspect also Dovi wonders whether, at his age, he wants to keep racing like he does.

There are lots of rumours that Rossi wont be on a Motogp bike next year too.

I think Dovi knew he wasn't going to be winning a Championship but had to get his retirement fund ready for in a couple of years.

I imagine he'll be doing a swap for Scott Redding in WSBK next year.
