KTM wants a top rider (don't give my words that look, Zarco IS a top rider) to make what they think will be the last step and to fully understand their bike's potential. Zarco has not accepted nor denied the offer yet.

Pedrosa seems to already have a foot out of HRC, which would be interested in Zarco and Dovizioso. Pedrosa is rumored to be ending up on a KTM.

Lorenzo is basically out of Ducati already. Dovizioso is ready to sign but wants a raise. Ducati offered him a 6 millions salary (he currently makes 1.5 million so I'd call that a raise) and he's "thinking" about it. The candidates for the second Ducati are Miller and Petrucci (in that order).

Suzuki wants to get rid of Iannone more than Palestine wants to get rid of Israel, and following up that "rumor" Aprilia started to talk with the Italian. They want to confirm Rins which they will do before Jerez. For the second bike, they are getting in touch with Zarco and Lorenzo.





Note I am not saying any of this is true, I am only saying a person I know who is rather close to the paddock told me.

If Honda do that its not 2 mad dogs its 3 with Puig.

Depending on where you read, it varies between $20 million over 2 years to $12 million a year.

his Ducati contract is 25 million for 2 years, so he makes 12.5 million a year. I'm talking in Euros of course

Karel Abraham pays to ride his 83 year old Ducati and does better.

Zarco should be placed on a factory Yamaha, beside Vale and Maverick but yammis won't do it.
Anyway, I believe Yohan will get Pedrosa's place next year or will stay with Tech3.

So they could certainly pay Dovi 10 mill and thats a bargain when you look at what Lorenzo's doing, I thought he was having a holiday break there was no sign of him on track after the first 5 mins.
