2022 silly season: another piece of the puzzle falls

MotoGP™’s latest contract signing period is in full flow – we look at what deals are done, and what’s spinning on the rumour mill

Another piece of the MotoGP™ silly season puzzle has fallen into place after confirmation of Jack Miller’s switch from a factory Ducati to a KTM from 2023. The Aussie follows in the footsteps of a number of other riders who have secured their futures, but there are still a lot of pieces in play.

Of course, a lot could indeed happen in just the next few weeks, so let’s start with what we know already. The following teams have confirmed both of their riders already.

Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™: Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli

Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP™ is the latest team to have locked in its line-up for 2023, with last year’s World Champion and current championship leader Fabio Quartararo signed on for two more season. The deal keeps Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli together for at least one year more, thanks to the contract which the Italian signed when he stepped up to the factory team last year.
