Lorenzo 'could' return to Yamaha

According to Lin Jarvis, Lorenzo 'could' return to Yamaha. That would be tricky as both Factory Yamaha seats are taken and Yamaha has no plans to run an independent team.

Mind you, he 'could' also stay at Ducati, or do whatever. Silly season in full effect.

MotoGP?

Over to you Mark for how Rossi is stopping others getting a competitive ride on the Yamaha..
Thanks from Prince Albert

Iannone just announced he's leaving Suzuki. That's looking more and more like JLo's seat.
Thanks from Speedhaus

did you read the article? it would be on a satellite bike

in case you missed it
A rumour that has circled the paddock recently is the number 99 returning to the Japanese factory, but in the colours of an Independent Team. However, with no official Independent Team announced by Yamaha, or any confirmation that there will be one at all next year, Lorenzo’s future remains one of the biggest talking points in 2018.

just curious ben do you know why stoner went to ducati in 07?

A satellite bike may be better than the factory bike at this point.

I just watched Lorenzo on MotoGP.com. He says that he will not retire and will be riding in MotoGP for the next two years.

Rumour has it that MarcVDS will switch to Yamaha, thereby creating a ride for Lorenzo.
