After the Dutch Grand Prix, one of the series’ hottest items takes the heat off rumors he could make a switch for 2024 and practically confirms his stay with his current team.

Despite a brief period of weakness at the start of the season, rumors didn’t take long to surface that Jorge Martin could be on the verge of a move to Yamaha.

Franco Morbidelli, who is at a crossroads in MotoGP, is said to be ready to leave the struggling manufacturer. After Toprak Razgatlioglu announced his departure from the Japanese, all eyes fell on Jorge Martin.

But while the Spaniard initially said he was “open to anything” in the future, after the Dutch Grand Prix and a very successful first half of the season, he virtually confirms his intention to stay with the Pramac Ducati team.

“I am happy where I am. I don’t see any reason for a change,” Martin said on the sidelines at Assen.

“I have a factory bike, I have an incredible team that is pushing hard for me and I feel that this should continue in 2024,” said the Spaniard.

Martin has a buy-out clause in his current contract with Ducati, which allows him to opt out after 2023. However, rather than leaving the best manufacturer in MotoGP, he is targeting the factory Ducati seat for 2025.
