    MotoGP 2010 - the grid so far


    Fiat Yamaha
    Currently: Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo
    2010: Valentino Rossi and ?

    MotoGP continues to wait for Jorge Lorenzo's decision. A Honda move was ruled out at Brno, making a new Yamaha contract seem inevitable, only for Ducati to step-in with a late big-money offer for the young Spaniard.

    Ducati Marlboro
    Currently: Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden
    2010: Casey Stoner and ?

    Casey Stoner has a contract for 2010, although his main priority at present is returning to full fitness. Ducati has first refusal on the services of Nicky Hayden, and seems keen to keep the American, but much will depend on what Lorenzo decides to do.

    Repsol Honda
    Currently: Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso
    2010: ? and ?

    HRC has reached a 'basic agreement' with both Pedrosa and Dovizioso to stay for the next two years, although no contracts have yet been signed.

    Rizla Suzuki
    Currently: Loris Capirossi and Chris Vermeulen
    2010: Alvaro Bautista and ?

    Former 125cc world champion and 250GP title contender Alvaro Bautista has signed a two-year contract with Suzuki. Loris Capirossi looks set to join him, leaving no room for the GSV-R's only race winner Chris Vermeulen.

    Monster Yamaha Tech 3
    Currently: Colin Edwards and James Toseland
    2010: ? and ?

    The Tech 3 rides look to be the most hotly contested seats on the grid, with the likes of Ben Spies, Randy de Puniet, Chris Vermeulen, Mika Kallio and Toni Elias - as well as Edwards and Toseland - linked to the team for next season.

    As the leading satellite rider, Edwards has the results to justify a new deal, while Toseland must close the gap to his team-mate. No signings are expected until Lorenzo's decision has been made at the factory outfit.

    San Carlo Honda Gresini
    Currently: Toni Elias and Alex de Angelis
    2010: Marco Simoncelli and Marco Melandri

    The only two-rider team with its full 2010 rider line-up definitely in place is Gresini Honda, which has confirmed the return of Melandri to ride alongside reigning 250cc world champion Simoncelli next season. Melandri claims Simoncelli will have a factory RC212V.

    LCR Honda
    Currently: Randy de Puniet
    2010: ?

    Randy de Puniet has been one of the most improved riders in 2009 and is currently the leading satellite Honda rider with seventh in the championship. The Frenchman also took his first podium since 2007 with third place at Donington Park.

    Lucio Cecchinello will surely be aiming to hold on to de Puniet, although Randy's results this season are likely to open up opportunities at other teams. LCR could expand to a two-rider team.

    Hayate Racing Team
    Currently: Marco Melandri
    2010: ?


    Despite impressive results with Melandri, Kawasaki won't reverse its decision to leave MotoGP completely at the end of this season and, as such, the Hayate team is not expected to continue either.

    Pramac Racing
    Currently: Mika Kallio and Niccolo Canepa
    2010: ? and ?

    Ducati looks set to keep Mika Kallio on one of its machines next season, although the young Finn's results during his temporary promotion to the factory team in place of Stoner will go a long way to deciding just what kind of ride he is offered. Lorenzo's decision and Stoner's health will also have an impact on his options.

    Fellow rookie Canepa has had a solid, if unspectacular, season and could do with a stand-out performance. Elias could well be among the other options, with his two podiums for Pramac last year well above the best of eighth by Kallio and Canepa so far this year.

    Scot Racing
    Currently: Gabor Talmacsi
    2010: ?

    Drafted in to the Scot team at Catalunya after starting the year in the 250cc class, Gabor Talmacsi's Hungarian sponsors helped save the Scot team - at the expense of Yuki Takahashi - but other teams might also have an eye on his financial backing for 2010. Meanwhile, Scot's 250cc world championship leader Hiroshi Aoyama should finally make the move to MotoGP next season, presumably on Honda machinery.

    Aspar Ducati
    2010: Hector Barbera.

    125 and 250cc team owner Jorge Martinez 'Aspar' will effectively take over the fifth Ducati entry from Group Francisco Hernando next season. With his present 250GP star Bautista joining Suzuki, Aspar has signed fellow quarter-litre race winner Hector Barbera.

    MotoGP star Jorge Lorenzo could make an announcement on his future at next week’s Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix, if not before, with a confirmed offer from Ducati and a renewed deal from Yamaha on the table.

    According to Spanish websites elPeriodico and motocuatro and Italy's Radio 2 the Spanish rider has reached an agreement with Ducati to ride with the Italian team in 2010.

    Ducati and Philip Morris contacted Lorenzo during the Brno round, after Casey Stoner's pullout due to medical reasons. Stoner has been the only rider that has been able to tame the Ducati D16 and take the Bologna based factory to win the MotoGP Championship in 2007 and continue to have multiple wins on the red bike.

    Kevin Schwantz has questioned Casey Stoner's decision to sit out three MotoGP races this summer as he attempts to recover from his ongoing health problems.

    Stoner first complained of fatigue at the Catalunya GP back in June and, after struggling through the next five rounds, decided to sit out from Donington Park in July until Estoril in October to give his body time to recover.

    But 1993 world champion Schwantz suspects there may be more to the Australian's situation than meets the eye.

    "As a rider, my gut feeling is Casey needs to be out there competing," he said. "To just decide you're going to skip three races and see if you feel any better at the end of it, to me, is a little bit out of the norm.

    "For me it's a real disappointment. Casey is a great competitor and I think maybe a little bit more of this has to do with something behind the scenes that maybe none of us quite know about yet. Maybe it's just some Stoner hard feelings towards Ducati, or towards the series or... I don't know what it could be."

    Schwantz pointed to Stoner's disastrous gamble to start his last race, at Donington Park, on wet tyres on a dry track in the hope of an imminent downpour as a sign that the 2007 champion was not acting as he would expect.

    "He made a tyre choice at Donington that seemed to be a little bit off of the norm," said Schwantz. "He didn't need to be making a gamble on tyres like that when he was in a championship hunt.

    "For me, that kind of told me that there was something more going on with Casey than just 'I don't really feel all that good'. To have signed a contract to compete unless something is medically wrong with you..."

    When asked how difficult it is to race at the highest level if motivation is an issue, Schwantz said: "If your heart is not in it, it's somewhat of a high-risk profession. Maybe you're better off going to go get a desk job, or at least stepping away from the sport. That, in my situation, is what I did.

    "I sure hope that's not the case with Casey Stoner - that he's just lost interest and focus in this sport at such a young age, because he's definitely a huge draw to the series. He's been a world champion, so he obviously can ride at world championship-winning level."

    yep they aren't coz the decision was made by the rider and not a team order to sit out 3 races.

    he's been criticized by schwantz for doing that but the doctors applaud his brave move coz too often they see heavily injured riders go through the pain to avoid being in the same scenario that stoner is in at the moment. it's becoming like ride or die profession... stoner was throwing up in his helmet just to finish 3rd...

    and ironically enough schwantz himself quit 3 races into his final season citing loss of motivation after what happened to wayne rainey...

    if lorenzo seals the deal stoner is almost definitely out of that team. hayden should be staying on coz surely marlboro would really want at least 1 american rider to represent them

    with Suzuki already signed Bautista and with contract negotiations with Capirossi, its just making Vermeulen look good by saying he is leaving

    its good for him, because he needs a better ride to compete at the top but dont think he is going to get it at motogp though.

    he should go to WSBK, and battle with Haga and Spies (if he doesnt go to motogp)

    well, if lorenzo moves, there is also a factory spot in yamaha left. wont be surprised to see edwards filling the spot.

    but there is also vermulen, elias, stoner(if out of ducati), randy depuniet(recently performing), and hopefully ben spies.

    yeah, there is talk to move edwards to factory yamaha, so that Spies can spend one year at tech 3 then move up later (cos new motogp rules say that new rider cannot go straight to factory team, must spend one year in satellite team). Bautista can go straight to Suzuki factory team cos they dont have a satelite team.

    would be awesome to see Spies on a factory Yamaha.

    i would really love to see lorenzo stick at Yamaha and really give rossi a run for his money instead. spies would need time to get up to motoGP winning speed and by that time rossi might have retired

    Yes lah..I'm a HUGE Lorenzo Fan..heheheheh
    Plus these 2(rossi & Lorenzo) have been kicking ass with the Yamaha M1...
    But would be excellent to see wat Spies can do with the M1(Tech 3 or Factory Yamaha)

    Hmmm maybe Dorna should really consider letting Non-prototype Machine in..
    Then we can have more riders in & teams in the starting grid..
    Heeheheh..WSBK will be soooOOoo PISSED!!!

    Some rider are fast but still find it hard to get ride is because they are not good for promotion & don't develop bike well, only know how to turn throttle
    Rossi is best for both

    nope i am from the rossi era, about same age as him he was my first hero and inspiration during his nastro azzuro 500cc GP days up to the honda repsol 990cc days...

    but then i heard of and saw racing videos of schwantz and rainey (and some other legends) and i read rainey's inspiring book about racing, politics of the paddock and life's ups n downs...

    then i realised racing is not just about rossi alone and how i would watch the others ride as well looking out for the things they do on track, how they brake, turn exit etc...

    Lorenzo decided to choose title over money. Ducati was offering him a huge carrot but in the end I guess he didn't want to make a gamble there and flop, when he is more likely to win much more with Yamaha M1. only tough thing for him to swallow would be that he earns 4 mils whilst rossi earns 14 mils, and Ducati was apparently offering between 6-8 mils...
