Categories:   MotoGP 

MotoGP’s silly season can oftentimes be quite confusing so we compiled a handy guide on how long each MotoGP rider has a contract for.

There’s still a whole load of announcements to come so keep an eye on MGP1 so you don’t miss a single thing of MotoGP’s silly season!

Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati Lenovo Team)

With the 2023 championship title sealed and potential for many more race wins and title fights, Francesco Bagnaia’s contract extension with Ducati was no surprise to anyone. The Italian dream team will work together until the end of 2026…for now.

Enea Bastianini (Ducati Lenovo Team)

Following Marc Marquez joining the factory Ducati squad, Enea Bastianini has found a new home for 2025 & 2026 in the Tech 3 team where he will run the newest spec KTM RC-16.

Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Factory Team)

At KTM’s home Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring in 2023, Brad Binder and the Mattighofen-based manufacturer agreed on a contract extension until the end of 2026. It will be the years 10,11 and 12 within the KTM ranks for the South African and, to be fair, we can’t think of a reason why the would break up after that.

Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Factory Team)

Jack Miller will stay with KTM until the end of 2024. However, given Pedro Acosta will join the team in 2025 and Miller lacking results his time with the Austrian outfit is over. A switch to GasGas for 2025 might still be on the cards.

Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing)

At the age of 34, Aleix Espargaro is the oldest MotoGP rider on the grid. The Spaniard has announced he will retire after the 2024 season.

Maverick Vinales (Aprilia Racing)

Maverick Vinales has found a new home for 2025 & 2026 in the Tech 3 team where he will run the newest spec KTM RC-16. 

Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP)

Rather surprisingly and despite the Yamaha being far from contention at the start of the 2024 season, Fabio Quartararo renewed his contract with the Japanese manufacturer for another two years. The Frenchman will stay in blue until the end of 2026.

Alex Rins (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP)

Following his one-year stint on the LCR Honda, Alex Rins is back with a factory team as the Spaniard secured a one-year deal with Yamaha. The Spaniard will stay with the Japanese until the end of 2024.

Luca Marini (Repsol Honda Team)

Following the premature Marquez-Honda split, Luca Marini made the switch into the Repsol-sponsored team ahead of the 2024 season. Following his dream of becoming a MotoGP factory rider, the Italian signed a two-year deal, running until the end of 2025, with the Japanese outfit.

Joan Mir (Repsol Honda Team)

Just like his teammate Joan Mir has a running contract with Honda until the end of 2024. To secure himself a spot in MotoGP for the time after the current paper, the 2020 World Champion will have to up the ante though.

Jorge Martin (Prima Pramac Racing)

In a surprising blockbuster move, Jorge Martin will join Aprilia Racing on a two-year deal after the 2024 season.

Franco Morbidelli (Prima Pramac Racing)

Following two rough years with Yamaha, Franco Morbidelli (more or less) lucked himself into the Pramac Ducati seat. However with his one-year running until the end of 2024 and rumors, Fermin Aldeguer is set for the 2025 Pramac Ducati spot, the Italian will have to show he’s still of podium and race-win caliber.

Marco Bezzecchi (Pertamina Enduro VR46 Racing Team)

Marco Bezzecchi has finally jumped onto factory material as the Italian will join Aprilia Racing after the 2024 season on a “multi-year deal”. As for his new teammate Martin, the multi-year deal is likely a two-year contract.

Fabio Di Giannantonio (Pertamina Enduro VR46 Racing Team)

Being pushed out of his Gresini seat by Marc Marquez, Fabio Di Giannatonio secured a late, one-year deal with VR46. He will stay with the team until at least the end of 2024.

Alex Marquez (Gresini Racing MotoGP)

Alex Marquez will stay with Gresini Racing until the end of 2026 following a two-year contract extension with the team.

Marc Marquez (Gresini Racing MotoGP)

The eight-time World Champion will join the Ducati factory team to become Pecco Bagnaia’s teammate for 2025 and 2026.

Johann Zarco (LCR Honda CASTROL)

Following his departure from Pramac Ducati, Johann Zarco was able to sign a two-year deal with Honda until the end of 2025. However, being on the latter end of his premier-class career, the Frenchman will likely have to look at another series after his current paper runs out.

Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda)

In the midst of a rather disappointing season and a bit of chaos during silly season, Takaaki Nakagami secured himself another year with LCR Honda as the Japanese and the team agreed on another one-year deal, extending Nakagami’s MotoGP stint until at least the end of 2024.

Miguel Oliveira (Trackhouse Racing MotoGP)

Having split with KTM at the end of 2022, Miguel Oliveira found a new home in the Trackhouse Racing satellite team. The Portuguese is contracted to Aprilia until the end of 2024 and will look to find a way into the Aprilia factory team for 2025.

Raul Fernandez (Trackhouse Racing MotoGP)

Having split with Tech3 at the end of 2022, Raul Fernandez found a new home in the Trackhouse Racing satellite team. The Spaniard is contracted to Aprilia until the end of 2024.

Pedro Acosta (Red Bull GASGAS Tech3)

MotoGP’s super-rookie signed a multi-year deal with KTM to join the Austrians’ factory team in 2025. 

Augusto Fernandez (Tech3 GASGAS Factory Racing)

Augusto Fernandez has a KTM contract until the end of 2024 and, with the Spaniard lacking decent results his second season in MotoGP might also be his last.
