The last piece of the market domino that began months ago has been announced, the driver has announced his transfer to the new team.
The pilot market continues MotoGP a few days before the fourteenth Grand Prix of the season, scheduled for Saturday 24 September at the Buddh International Circuit, in India.
After the San Marino race, which ended with the victory of Jorge Martin ahead of Marco Bezzecchi and Pecco Bagnaia, which had led to the much talked about tests on Monday, the riders continue to change teams.
There were many rumors about Marc Marquez at the end of that weekend. The Spaniard must decide whether to continue with Honda or, as reported by numerous rumors, move to the Gresini team, where he would find a Ducati and his brother Alex and where he could try to fight for the title straight away.
A difficult choice for Marquez, who is currently in extreme difficulty in the championship, in nineteenth place in the riders’ standings with only 31 points and zero podiums achieved. Be careful, however, because Marc Marquez’s fate could change due to a market domination that has finally ended and which closes a door on the Spanish champion.
Morbidelli moves to the Parma team, the transfer market
Franco Morbidelliwho announced his farewell to the official Yamaha team a few weeks ago, moves to the team Pramac. It is the last box in the market domino that began with Alex Rins who announced his move to Yamaha shortly after Morbidelli’s farewell. So Joahnn Zarco will take advantage of the place in Honda LCR where he will replace Rins and leave a nice seat available, which from 2024 will be occupied by Morbidelli.
A radical change for the Italian driver, who has never been on the podium this year and currently occupies twelfth place in the standings with 66 points. A complex season, the result of the general problems that arise Yamaha he also had the whole year with Fabio Quartararo, who was equally in difficulty.
The next one could finally be the season of redemption for Franco Morbidelli, who could return to being competitive on Ducati and, why not, put himself at the center of the fight for the title. On the other hand, Jorge Martin is giving Pecco Bagnaia, reigning champion and championship leader, a hard time with the same bike and he absolutely doesn’t seem to want to give up. Watch out for 2024 because there have been many surprises so far, and they may not even end here.
