2021 MOTOGP WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP LINE-UP – 2021 MotoGP rider line-up after confirmation of Luca Marini and Enea Bastianini’s Avintia deals

All 2021 MotoGP grid places are now confirmed barring the second Aprilia seat alongside Espargaro, which had been reserved for Andrea Iannone. That seat will now go to either Bradley Smith or fellow test rider Lorenzo Savadori, a final decision being made after pre-season testing.

Two race winners without a place are Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow. Dovizioso announced he was leaving Ducati in mid-August and, while insisting he is not retiring, will now take a sabbatical. Crutchlow, who has lost his LCR Honda seat to Alex Marquez, has signed to become a Yamaha test rider in 2021.

With the 2020 MotoGP™ season having come to a close, we look forward to 2021 with every seat now confirmed. Some huge moves will take place over the winter with Pol Espargaro joining Repsol Honda, Fabio Quartararo swapping places with Valentino Rossi at Yamaha, plus Jack Miller and Francesco Bagnaia spearheading Ducati’s charge. The latest announcement being that Aprilia test riders Lorenzo Savadori and Bradley Smith will battle it out over pre-season to be Aleix Espargaro’s 2021 teammate.
