Silly sea­son: Who goes where?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

An­drea Ian­none

Al­ready signed up at Suzuki for two years, Ian­none’s had a dif­fi­cult start to the year on the GSX-RR. Strug­gling with re­sults, a clean break for both rider and team could be on the cards.

Danilo Petrucci

His con­tract is up at the end of 2017, but af­ter strong rides and a podium at Mugello, Petrucci has surely done enough to get a con­tract ex­ten­sion – un­less some­one makes him a bet­ter of­fer.

Scott Red­ding

It hasn’t been a good year for Red­ding and with his con­tract up at the end of 2017, there’s ru­mours of po­ten­tial re­place­ments be­ing ap­proached. Jack Miller has been men­tioned.

Jack Miller

At the end of a three-year HRC deal, Miller’s first op­tion will un­doubt­edly be to stick with the Marc VDS team. He’s also re­ported to be in talks with Pra­mac about a move to Du­cati.

Tito Rabat

It’s been a dif­fi­cult in­tro­duc­tion to Rabat in Mo­togp. He’s been linked to the Av­in­tia Du­cati team for 2018, but there’s also talk of him mov­ing to WSB with the Red Bull Honda team.

Loris Baz

If Baz gets pushed out of the Av­in­tia team de­spite de­cent re­sults this year, it could be a re­turn to World Su­per­bikes for the lanky 24-year-old French­man.
